After the USA won the World Junior Championship last night, Team USA's captain decided to bust out some questionable moves in the celebration.

USA Celebrations Go a Touch Overboard in Dominant Win



Team USA was an all-out favourite to win the World Junior tournament this year, and they flat-out delivered. They dominated Sweden in the Gold Medal game, winning 6-2.

The game got heated at the end, with a few events leading up to some of the disrespect fans were feeling. First was Sam Rinzel, who scored to put Team USA up big, and celebrated by blowing a kiss to Swedish fans.

The game also featured a bit of a brawl near the end of the game, with players throwing punches with their gloves on. Clearly, Swedish players felt a bit angered by the way the game was going, letting their frustration show.

Mcgroarty Dances in Celebration Line Before Getting Gold Medal



The other move that could be seen as a bit disrespectful was Captain Rutger McGroarty's dancing while he accepted the gold medal for his team. While not totally disrespectful, after the events that occurred in the game, it could definitely be interpreted as crossing a line.


This will probably be forgotten quickly, and rightly so, as these players are still kids in their own right. However, as they approach the NHL level, they may face a shock of what is crossing the line when it comes to celebrations.
