Prior to Canada and the U.S. facing off in the women's hockey finals and men's hockey semi-finals at the Olympics, Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper and President Barack Obama decided to make a friendly wager:
I'm betting @barackobama one case of Canadian beer per hockey game this week. #teamusa is good, but #WeAreWinter. #GoCanadaGo @WhiteHouse

.@pmharper and I bet on the women's and men's US-Canada hockey games. Winner gets a case of beer for each game. #GoTeamUSA! -bo

Like I said, #teamusa is good but #wearewinter. @BarackObama, I look forward to my two cases of beer. #CANvsUSA #Sochi2014

Granted he was skipping out on work to go to a bar in the middle of the day to watch a hockey game, but in Canada it would probably be more controversial if he didn't do that.
But still, it's worth reliving Ford's hilarious leaps for joy following the women's team's victory yesterday:
