this may be of some local interest
OT: Vancouver pulling a lil bro after the Stanley Cup finals
but the Asian guy with the hockey stick is damn funny.
Terrible tape job on that twig though.
It's terrible for hockey purposes... but ideal for window bashin' purposes.
"Are you not entertained?"
This BEGS for a photoshop thread.
The least scary guy on the planet.
You've got to hand it to that guy. As mindless violence goes, using the actual equipment of the sport in question to commit said violence is fairly clever. NFL rioters should take note.
How would you use a football during a riot? Oh wait...You could do the three kings thing and strap grenades to them.
I was thinking more of the pads/helmets.
I'm pretty sure they were booing Bettman, not the Bruins
Yeah, Bettman got booed ridiculously bad but Vancouver fans were booing some Boston players when they skated with the cup. I did, however, like the cheer they gave for Tim Thomas.
They booed Gregory Campbell, but something tells me that was directed more at his dad than anything. Brad Marchand might have been the other one, I'm not sure.
Yeah, it was Marchand.
they had a bettman sucks chant going
The fans stayed to A) congratulate their team on a great season (stood up with a minute left to start cheering), B) to see the Stanley Cup, and C) to give some congratulations to local players on the Bruins (Lucic got a loud ovation as he's a local boy from East Van). They also gave a nice ovation for Tim Thomas.
You're telling me Bruin fans wouldn't have booed Luongo had he skated with the Cup in Boston?
This game meant EVERYTHING to Vancouver. The Canucks are the one thing that unites this city where 40% of its residents are born outside Canada.
The Bruins are a distant 4th sport in Boston. I don't recall seeing 100,000 Bruin fans outside watching the game on TV.
Given that almost all hockey fans seem to despise Bettman, how does he keep his job? Isn't he a bit of a liability for the league's image?
He just got a 5-year extension this past season, so I guess not (somehow).
I'd be willing to bet they were booing Bettman. Bettman deserves booing.
They stayed to boo Gary Bettman, not Boston.
Boo'ing Bettman is always the right answer. Doesn't matter what the question is.
No, they definitely would have booed Bettman that hard. Any team outside of Phoenix would boo Bettman as much as possible no matter what the circumstance is.
It was definitely Bettman. The fans stopped once the Conn Smythe and the cup were handed off. They actually gave Milan Lucic one hell of a cheer.
I thought they were just calling for little-used 4th line center Montee Boo-urns.
feel free to neg...unless you enjoyed the embedded pictures...or not. at least it was worth a try
the pictures are fantastic (but they could have just as easily been added to the previous riot thread)
for posting something all of us already knew all too much about... and then I scrolled down the rest of the way.
A mighty +1, and my apologies. That picture is sheer insanity.
And let him henceforth be known as Angry Canadiasian.
I think the guy with the hockey stick is the Canadian Tyler Durden (no doubt off to loot a fashion eyewear boutique).
....."OFFICER, PLEASE! FOR GOD SAKES, THEY'RE LOOTING THE FOOD KING!"
Its kinda cute though.... Romantic andd it'd the definition of french canadian...
beat me to it...
This picture does not compute. He must be the angry store owner.
and gone all medieval on their dumb drunk asses.
It's funny when your team's fans feel compelled to apologize to the other team's city:
“These are not hockey fans,” Sarah Forrest from Vancouver also wrote to the Globe. “These are trouble makers who would have rioted whether we lost or won the game. The true fans of Vancouver are disgraced by what is going on in our city.”
on the Puck Daddy site, I thought I was thirteen and reading old issues of Alpha Flight again:
Puck, is that you?
reminds me of Happy Michael Phelps.
Vancouver is one of the coolest cities I've ever been to. Seriously.
This incident unfortunately paints the place and people there in a bad light, which couldn't be further from the truth.
If you haven't been there before, you'll want to go someday.
ohh my God that is one angry Canadian
What did you do for the game last night?
That is a Coach bag, and either a couple seasons old or a knockoff.
Those are coach purses not gucci bags....IDIOT!
That's a Coach bag, not Gucci.
Good thing the internets are anonymous, else I'd be getting my pants hung from the flagpole right now.
I don't know what's more concerning. People noticing that or that three of you posted it at around the same time...
Seriously, that is so weird when that happens.
Coach Hivemind FTW?
Should we tell them now or later that we're all walking, arm-in-arm, through Somerset?
Do you think Geico offers coverage for riot damage?
This guy just wanted some BSN Syntha-6. He just wanted to work on his Guns.
