I am at a loss for words. Tyrell and I have just come home from being caught in the riots in Downtown Vancouver after the Canucks lost 4-0 to the Boston Bruins in the Stanley Cup Finals. We went to my storefront to make sure that the area wasn’t being affected by the riots and destruction. Luckily it wasn’t. But so many other places were.
I am so disappointed in our city and embarrassed to be from Vancouver right now. Can you imagine what other cities think of us – how we look like the sorest losers ever? Clearly we didn’t deserve to win and I hope we never do now. These immature losers that are going nowhere in life came downtown from the suburbs, call themselves fans, and have destroyed our city. It’s not worth it. It’s just a game.
The Vancouver Canucks had an amazing season and you know what, the Boston Bruin goalie (Tim Thomas) was just incredible and they earned it. No reason to riot and destroy our own city. Savages. Seriously.
Here is the video footage that Tyrell and I took on the way home. I was hoping to be able to catch someone’s face so that the police can track them down and arrest them, but it’s too dangerous to stay out there.
There is so much worse that has happened since. Major stores getting looted. Apparently people getting stabbed. Just awful.
