Smarten up. The riots in Vancouver this evening following the Canuck’s loss in the Stanley Cup final scares the living shit out of me. People who get so riled up that they will become angry and destructive over something as trivial as a hockey game worries me. Cities that pull this shit should have their team taken away. This is total stupidity and is actually quite scary, seeing what people will do over a shiny cup and a stupid game. To quote a friend of mine, Steven F, “The Vancouver riots prove that average intelligence in the population is at a record setting low.”
How does a hockey team losing affect your daily life? Is the sun going to fail to rise? Are you going to lose your job, your home or your family? In case you’re a hockey fan and are therefore too dumb to know the answer: NO, YOU’RE NOT. This kind of sports fanaticism bewilders me, and the mob mentality terrifies me. Protest when the government destroys your freedom. Protest when something meaningful happens or your basic needs are threatened. But when your hockey team loses, just go home and cry.
Grow up, assholes. This is seriously embarrassing. Care passionately about something that MATTERS. Oh, and stop blaming the goalie.
