For shame.

In Vancouver, after the victory of the Bruins for the Stanley cup (as said in my blog post before this), a massive riot broke out from some Vancouver Canuck fans. I thought to myself prior to the games outcome that an event like this would have broken out, and I was right. Some horrible stuff happened; 3-5 cars were torched, and some say that is only how many cars were visible from the news building, and apparently 9 stabbings occurred where Boston fans were targeted. Someone even jumped off an overpass and broke their leg(s), maybe died later. Anyways, the events following were horrific, and now the sum for the clean up is said to stand up to 2 million dollars CAN. If you want to see footage of this riot, I have a video linked right here. I like the point brought up by someone who has one of the highest rated comment where people around the world are rioting over basic civil and human rights, while these idiots are trashing their own city over a game.

  1. I can barely grasp how religious belief drives people to violence against each other but a sports game? This is childish. It's akin to a 6 year old flipping a checkerboard in what is really self disgust after losing. Actually worse, the fans weren't the ones playing the game.
