I woke up this morning to headlines about new riots. Were they in a Middle Eastern country looking to topple an oppressive government? No. Were they in some European nation facing economic collapse? No. They were in Vancouver, of all places. Vancouver, Canada. Why? Because a small black disc slapped with a piece of wood—but not just any piece of wood; a piece of wood held by a Boston Bruins player!—slid past the Vancouver Canucks goalie and landed in some netting. And it happened four times!
So Canucks fans—a bit like Terps fans in College Park—took to the streets to throw bottles, smash windows, set fires, overturn cars, and clash with police.
That’s pucked up.
