My NHL playoff experience this year was completely opposite from the previous year. Ya see last year, my team -the Vancouver Canucks- made it to the Stanley Cup Finals and pushed a game seven against the Boston Bruins. Then, when we (the fans) were so positive that our team would win game seven at home, so certain because we’d never won a cup, thought it was made-to-be because of Canucks 40th anniversary …. We Lost. And following the loss the city Rioted.
This year the Los Angles Kings beat out the Canucks (in round 1) and went on to win the Stanley Cup in Game six against the New Jersey Devils. After the loss in New Jersey, Newark didn’t riot. And after the win in Los Angles, LA didn’t riot.
I mean I know Hockey is what Canada lives for -but a riot in Vancouver ? ? I still have a bitter taste in my mouth, and it’s not the tear gas.
