Re: Vancouver Canucks Hockey

I feel sorry for the Vancouver journalists who have to cover that football game tonight, Anna Marie. I reckon the only people who listen to AM 1410 tonight will have broken radios.

'Course, I feel sorry for any hockey fan in this town who has to miss the game. I noticed a hardware store in Cloverdale that closes early on game day.

Re: Vancouver Canucks Hockey

Not the ending we would have preferred...but a good season non the less..

Whats happening downtown now is absolutely sickening--those are NOT hockey fans doing that--Some poeple know how to wreck a good thing.. I had thought some might have grown up..

Re: Vancouver Canucks Hockey

I see a lot of Canuck jerseys. I don't think these rioters are Boston fans. Maybe the city should bill the Canucks for the policing and damage. It's not like the Canucks didn't make money.

Re: Vancouver Canucks Hockey

I know they did make money, but there is not excuse for poor sportsmanship. So we lost, it wasn't a close game.

Re: Vancouver Canucks Hockey

That stuff happens here if they win! I guess we haven't won in a long time, so we're safe.. Although when the Giants won the world series thing we're pretty calm and normal..I guess if it's over 50years to win a title there's a "calm clause'..

I think of our 20 season tickets, only 2 got used. I imagine McMahon Stadium was rather empty last night.

Re: Vancouver Canucks Hockey

I wondered if anyone in Vancouver burned their Escape Trailers due to the loss of the hockey game? Hockey must be a real important game in Canada.

Re: Vancouver Canucks Hockey

Hockey had little to do with it, although I heard one person suggest that the violence in the game of hockey may have had some impact.
The official story is that a small group of anarchists came equipped with tools to break windows and bottles of flammable liquid to set the fires. The fires did seem to start rather easily and quickly at the end of the game. However, then there were the thousands of well-lubricated fans who encouraged the hooligans or joined in and many thousands more who stayed to watch and shoot pictures and video with their phones and cameras.

Thousands of photos and video have been posted on Facebook and the like. Face-recognition software is available to enable the police to 'tag' and identify many of the idiots who participated.

If you go to: http://www.npr.org/blogs/pictureshow...ot?sc=fb&cc=fp
you will see probably the iconic photo from the riot. Some are suggesting the picture was a set-up, but I know the photographer, Richard Lam and I have covered my share of riots, and believe me, you're only concerned with your own safety and with getting the picture.

Best comment on the picture was "at least somebody from Vancouver can score on the road".
