Have Some Class Vancouver

Ok I have to rant. I live in Vancouver. I am proud to live in Vancouver. Its a beautiful city. Today I am ashamed. For those of you who don't know why I'll explain.

Today was Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Vancouver vs. Boston. Vancouver lost. I've seen better games and I have to say it tonight the better team won. Congrats Boston and Timmy you guys deserve it. Canucks re-group and we will get 'em next year.

That's my piece on the game, the fans in Rogers arena you make me proud to be in Vancouver. Cheering your team until the end even with a 4-0 loss. Standing O for Timmy (Bostons goalie) when he gets his trophy. You guys are awesome and in my opinion have shown what a sports fan should be.

To the small group of fuckers (there is no other word) who are using this loss as an excuse to rip apart our wonderful city and to give the world such a great opinion of us by flipping cars, breaking windows, rioting and setting fires, get a life. You make me ashamed, sad, angry. You are the definition of fucker. You are there not to support your team, you're not angry about a bad call, an unfair loss (not that I'm condoning that as an excuse either). You are there to flip cars, stare down the police, be a general asshole.

It's sad that we can't learn from our history, that a new generation feels the need to make the same mistakes (we had the same situation in 1994). Its sad that the reputation we built during the Olympics has now been tarnished bc a couple hundred assholes have decided to live out their anarchists dream. I hope you get caught, you deserve what you have coming.

To the police, fire and everyone doing their best to calm the situation I tip my hat and raise my glass. You have my respect and my support.

Sorry for my poorly written rant, but seriously Vancouver have some fucking class.

RANT, I LOVE a good rant. And they are not suppose to be written any other way than poorly (even though it's totally not)-cause that's just the way it is.

You hit the nail on the head, what is wrong with people?

And I heart freakin' Vancouver...been there twice...LOVE IT. It is truly one of the most beautiful cities. And I would've expected this in the US, but not from the Canadians, you're all so nice, seriously...all of you. (Except the effers)
