A Blemish On Our Image

The Stanley Cup finals are over, Boston has ended their cup drought.  Vancouver's first cup however will have to wait.  After the game...I am almost ashamed to say this but...riots in the streets of Vancouver.

Such shameful behavior. This is not what is supposed to happen after a huge loss at home.  All those fans should be ashamed of themselves.  Later reports show that the rest of the city has pitched in to clean up after the riots.  Although the riots have been cleaned up, the taint left behind from the riots is what will most likely be remembered.

After watching the whole event on TV, I am left with a question.  "What would happen if that had been Toronto losing the cup at home?"  Would the Maple Leaf fans start a riot on the streets of Toronto?  Its hard to say considering the Leafs have not made the playoffs since the lock out.  One thing I would hope is that the Maple Leaf fans who are accustomed to failure in the playoffs would take the loss a little better than Vancouver.   If I remember correctly, the fans in other Canadian cities who's teams have lost the Stanley Cup in game 7's have not started riots.  Suck it up Vancouver and look towards next season!
