Losing a Hockey Game is not readily associated with trashing a city. Except in Vancouver, Canada where this is the SECOND time, they started burning police cars. Today, 15 June 2011, and similarly when they lost the Stanley Cup playoffs, in 1994 citizens were found trashing their city.
Observers noted burning police cars, transit was shut down and media sensationalism was rampant as Boston fans so rightly celebrated, bewildered.
A Hathian Police Spokesperson said: “Even if we had a Hockey team, we would never allow a crowd to behave as abhorrently as Vancouver fans. If we had such a team we would disband the franchise. And we would use force. So much force. Believe me.”
Local media still claim Vancouver is a World Class City.
