Sigh...well, my disappointment at not winning the cup was quickly shadowed by my disappointment in my fellow man. Just like I feared, the downtown core broke out in riots after the game. It's always just a small group of crazy people who are able to ruin something for everyone. 

Don't worry about me though - my neighbourhood is thankfully made up of peace-lovin' hippes, Italians, Portuguese, and lesbians (It's a really great neighbourhood, you guys!). So, we went up on a local roof and watched the sunset through the smoke plumes from downtown, while in our immediate area it was all "bicycles, puppies, and children at play" as one of our group said. The most "rioting" we heard was a man who walked by cheering "Go Canucks 2012!" (which is a sentiment that I can get behind).

Also, there's good news because two members of the Boston Bruins are local BC boys! So, congrats to them! And my goodness, but Tim Thomas really deserved the Conn Smythe trophy. He did an amazing job...I think he may have replaced Antti Neimi as my favourite NHL goalie.
Picture taken by my sister on her iPod at sunset. There is a lot more smoke now. Police have released tear-gas and started making arrests. I know it's part of the national stereotype, but honestly, I don't know what the deal is with Canadians and hockey - it just makes people insane for some reason. It's a dangerous sport whether you play it or not.

ETA: Someone on my facebook just said: "Send in Tim Thomas, he can stop anything!" Hahaha
