I don't watch hockey much.
At all. Ever.
But I was sorta listening in on the playoffs since a Canadian team was in the finals.
In my heart I cheered for them a little since I heard it had been many years since they had a big win.
After I read last night that the Canucks lost, I thought to myself...too bad, better luck next year.
But when I watched the news this morning I was absolutely appalled by what I saw.
Some of my fellow Canadians were taking their rage of the loss to the streets and causing riots, fires and looting.
WHAT A HUGE EMBARRASSMENT!!
So they lost....GET OVER IT!!!
Don't think that you have to prove a point by turning into a bunch of goons and destroying your own home over it!
I really think that most individuals are rational, but you put people in a group and suddenly they turn into a bunch of lunatics.
I even saw one guy on the news who was prepared to be an idiot and had some flammable liquid in an eye dropper that he used to light a police car on fire.
OVER A HOCKEY GAME.
I could go on and on about the stupidity of people in a group but I will stop here.
I will however apologize and assure everyone that not all Canadians act like this.
We are mostly a good friendly lot who would love just to sit and enjoy Tim Horton's coffee.
