Let's go with: disappointment.
On the plus side: after this you guys don't have to hear me go on about hockey for at least the next few months!
I think that's the strongest emotion I'm feeling right now. Not about the Canucks losing game 7 - I'm already mostly over that. There's always next year and all that good stuff.
No, it's the handful of fans in downtown Vancouver who are going to get all the headlines tomorrow (and already have tonight). The ones who decided to flip over cars and set them on fire. Who decided to smash windows and get themselves arrested.
Perhaps 'fans' is not the right word. Maybe 'idiots looking to start trouble who found a half-assed excuse to do so' would be a more accurate label.
It is, sadly, just like what happened the last time the Canucks lost in game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals.
Have we really not learned anything in the last 17 years?
At the end of the day, it's just a game. Relax. There's no need to vandalize and get (or add to?) a criminal record. There's no need to tarnish a entire city's reputation.
It's all just... very disappointing. And haven't we had enough of that from our hockey team?
