Douchery 101

Take a good look at this photo below.

Looks like a war zone, doesn't it? Except that it isn't. It's the aftermath of the riots that took place in Vancouver after the Vancouver Canucks lost the Stanley Cup to the Boston Bruins. So let me get this straight. A hockey team loses a big game and there are RIOTS? You have got to be kidding me. I think these guys need a dose of reality, because they are acting like a bunch of spoiled brats.

I would've expected this type of scene from a country where people are fighting for a true cause. Like, oh, I don't know...the people in Libya and Syria, perhaps? People who are putting their lives on the line, fighting for freedom from their oppressive regimes. Regimes that have no issues gunning down their fellow countrymen to silence dissent. Just to hold on to power. So they can live in their fancy palaces and spend money on fancy cars, planes, vacations, clothes and whatever other wonders they can afford with state funds while the general population lives in oppressed misery.

Meanwhile, back in Canada, where we have healthcare, welfare, jobs, a fairly stable banking system, and most importantly, a democracy (kind of - let's ignore the big white elephant called Harper for now) people are taking to the streets in protest over a godforsaken hockey game. Classy guys. Really classy. Glad to see that our country is full of people who obviously have their priorities straight.

Maybe we should fly those rioters down to Libya or Syria so they get a real taste of what mayhem and loss are all about.

Your solution might be more productive than mine. I was thinking we should just round up these jerks, set them on fire, then fling them into the ocean via a suitably large catapult.

They lose, it's called a "riot". They win, it's called a "celebration". Either way, the destruction would be about the same.

But if the Leafs ever won the Cup? The "celebration" would put this and the G20 to shame. Easily. Good thing that's not gonna happen any time soon.. ;)
