Just a game

Isn't it?
One team had to lose...aren't all Vancouver fans big enough to say: "Congratulations!" to Tim Thomas - who was outstanding! - and the Boston Bruins?  They outplayed the Canucks.  Simple as that. 

The thugs and louts who wore scarves over their faces and just happened to have fire-starting materials were there to make trouble in the city...no matter who won.

I suspect if the game had been in Boston, there might have been a similar outcome...no matter who won.

Let's move on.  The next season starts in 11 weeks, I'm told.

I couldn't believe the film footage I saw on the news. I'm so sorry this happened in your community. We've seen the same sorts of things happen here.

Ugly scenes. I agree--time to move on and hope for better reactions from all next time!

If it had been a football game I would have cared. LOL

When men get in packs, they lose minds. When women get in packs, they do makeovers and go shopping. Nuff said.

Even I heard about this - and I'm in the UK, where sporting events that don't contain UK teams are almost never mentioned! A shame they had to spoil it for everyone.

Were you there?
Looks like fun, but why do thugs (and they're everywhere!) have to try to ruin it?
