Australia is generally a warm country and even in our Winter months it’s not very cold by the standards of other parts of the world (I still complain a lot though). Countries like Canada have a climate much better suited to sports like Ice Hockey. It happens here in Australia but there are only a handful of indoor ice rinks around so it’s not very widely played.
Canadian Ice Hockey player Andrew Bodnarchuk is not someone I’d heard of before but a little while ago I saw these images on tumblr. I’m assuming he’s at least mildly well known in Canada so somewhat of a celebrity. It’s always fun when a celebrity gets naked and puts it on the internet. Sure, this is a fun, harmless rear nude but it’s still fun. Losing a bet that involves nudity is always a great thing. I’m also assuming that Glenarbour is not a warm place to swim.
