Stanley Cup Riot 2011; Vancouver, Beautiful British Columbia.


There were 70,000 raging lunatics in the streets last night.  It is rumoured that one Bruins fan was tossed over a bridge and killed. Luongo, from what I have read, is still unharmed, so figure that shit out.

In the above video a man tried to deter people from smashing windows of businesses, shouting "This is MY city!!" and he, in turn, was beaten.

But there were 1300 (and counting) lovely Vancouverites up bright and early to help clean up the remains of the chaos and embarrassment that occurred:

Unfortunately, the looting is still pretty widespread as the police try to keep up with the people of Vancouver who need widescreen TVs and Hudson's Bay blankets to keep them warm after the loss of the cup:

Of all of the shame and disgusted comments I have read on Twitter, Facebook, and various comment boards, I think this one sums it up pretty nicely:

"I don't think I'm going to move to Vancouver after all.  It's not the city I thought it was."

Thank you for the non-partisan blog post. We Vancouverites will do our best to make Canada proud of us again.
