This Olympian's husband double-fisting at 9 am is what Canadian legends are made of

There’s nothing like cheering on the Canadian Olympic team in Pyeongchang at odd hours of the day. And as a husband of an Olympian, this means beers before noon.

It seems all eyes were on Canadian curler Rachel Homan’s husband on the morning of February 19, as she competed against Japan.

The pressure was high, so high that Homan’s husband, Shawn Germain, was spotted double-fisting twice before 9 am.

To be fair, bars in some Canadians cities opened as early as 7 am during certain Olympic sports. And we can assure you none of those patrons double-fisting at 8 am are husbands of Olympians.

After Germain’s photo went viral online he got on Twitter to explain his morning beers.

“You can judge all you want,” said the ex-pro hockey player. “The stress level is high, I’m not a drunk, I’m just Canadian.”

And of course, Canadians were all for Germain and his double-fisting.

As the original poster of the Germain photo Ben Johnson said, “Not all heroes wear capes.”
