Like most Canadians, I’m pretty disappointed with the behavior of the Canuck fans after their Stanley Cup loss. I’m pretty dissappointed a Canadian team didn’t win the Cup too. But that doesn’t make me want to go and burn the city down. I love hockey. I played for most of my youth. But I understand that it’s just a game.
However, as a nerd, I am stoked about the amount of coverage and the viral response to the riot – twitter a flutter with people begging the rioters to stop (though, I don’t think a lot of them were checking their accounts while they were smashing in the windows of London Drugs), The news spreading fast – but most of all I’m impressed with the volume of photographic and video evidence of people committing crimes. I’m pretty sure that most of these people will be caught and face charges, and that makes me happy that the crowd can now overpower the mob. Good job guys. This is something I started whipping up when I had a few minutes lull in my work, and finished off a nice round of em later. I’m tapped out though now, so enjoy.
