Guy Boucher looks even more menacing with that scar on his face.

Vancouver-Boston. Shoot me.

I was pulling for the Bolts.  That was an intense game.  But for the finals, I have to say go Canucks- they've never won a cup and, as much as I may love my Boston based family and friends, I don't like any of their sports teams. 

I'm a Devils fan and they did not have a very good season.  It's kinda silly how in north Jersey where I grew up, it was all wannabe New Yorkers who supported the Rangers (I don't like the Rangers.)  Here in south Jersey, it's all Flyers country (wannabe Phildelphians) and I'm not a Flyers fan.

Just read about it.

Sports fans are the fucking worst.

At least geeks don't riot, they just bitch about it on the internet.

Too bad about those rotten apples. :-(

To talk hockey for a moment though - good on the Bruins to rebound after what the Flyers did to them last year. I know the prevailing opinion around Philly was largely against Boston, but I personally am a fan of keeping things as close to the conference/division as possible. I must be the only Philly fan that occasionally roots for NY teams based on this philosophy. :-)

So congrats to Boston and, by proxy, the Eastern Conference. :-)

Hey don't feel bad, Chicago rioted to CELEBRATE a NBA title in the 90s.

Might have even had more than one riot, since the bulls won 6 times

OK so it looks like rioting is in Vancouver's blood!

hockey riots from 94:

Notes:

lady at the beginning saying this is something you should see in America

the hilariously bad commentary by the reporter

odd references to "slam dancing" and "moshing" throughout. Must've been the buzzwords at the time

the quirky dude playing Oh Canada at the end in the middle of the street

I wound up in the middle of the Lakers riots last June. They won too. But it wasn't like this.

And yeah they did it in 94. Is last night surprising? No, but it's still disappointing.

Just read about it.

Geeks hack. LulzSec has been having a ball lately.

They probably would have rioted even if they had won.  It probably wouldn't have been as severe, but drunk idiots are still drunk idiots.
Bitches be crazy about their hockey.

They were likely not Canucks fans. They probably went downtown intending to riot no matter the outcome knowing they can get lost in those crowds when the looting, burns cars etc. start. Police recognized them from other incidents like the Olympics. They aren't indicate of hockey fans or Vancouver.

They came prepared with firebombs, clubs, etc. Definately not the casual fans.
