When the Canadian women's hockey team were receiving their gold medals, the dude handing them out gave each of them a kiss on each cheek. What's up with that? Will that same guy kiss each of the men on the cheek when they're getting their medals? Of course not, he'd get his ass kicked. Even if a woman were handing out the medals to the men, I doubt that she'd kiss a team of sweaty men. Unless she's into that sort of thing.
Is that a tradition in Italy? If so, I'd like to start a Canadian tradition of grabbing a woman's chest as a polite way of introducing myself.
"Oh that Paul, he's so polite he used both hands! Canadians are so polite!"
