Vancouver - Riots

I am not sure how well known this is outside of Vancouver, but after losing game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals a bunch of people went insane and started rioting. There is a ton of footage of it circulating around, but I really like this video (originally an advertisement to come to Vancouver for those that don't know).

So just how well known is this incident outside of Canada? Post in the comments.

  5. i saw it on CNN and i hated the fact that the reporter kinda compared them to religious extremists.
    on the other hand ...the Canucks should know that losing is part of the game too and accept their defeat (even though it's like the 3rd time already?)

  7. I've only seen it on blogs, but I rarely watch the news, so it might have made it here to Sweden unbeknownst to me.

  8. This hasn't gotten onto the news in my area at all. Although we have our fair share of crazy football fans, ourself.

    People investing a lot into other people. Wouldn't know how, or why, but it seems to happen.
