Good thing they cut off the alcohol early!

Oh wait......

I'll give it a 2 for lack of fire and overturned cars.

And then they show fire. Make it a 4.

Just like all the Miami fans who rioted the other night when Dallas won the title in their arena? Oh wait....

Oh no, the story says at least two cars are flipped? Let's give 'em a point each and round it off to a 6.

Man they passionate about hockey up in Canada. Every team North of the Border sells out every game.

People can give a **** about the team that's by me.

Anyway, this riot sounds like what happened in LA, but the Lakers at least won.

These fans are being sore losers.

Yeah the police are always prepared after championships.

They're usually able to contain the celebrations well, but sometimes it's way too much and turns into a riot.

This is crazy.

Last time they played for lord stanley's cup was the day of the O.J. Simpson bronco chase. Watch the ESPN 30 for 30 documentary called "June 17th, 1994". It's a great one.

True story. We were up in Toronto several years ago and preparation for the opening of pre-season hockey for the Leafs was the lead story for the first 5-10 minutes of the news. The second story was about the overnight death (murder?) of a woman and her young child.

Or as Canadians refer to the Bronco chase "the second biggest news story".

I'm surprised; I thought is was an American phenomenon and that those folk were more appropriately mellow.

Have you ever seen what happens at a soccer match in Europe?

True, but do they usually go out and wreck their cities, or is it all happening at the arena/stadium?

They rioted in 1994 and I think other Canadian cities have in the past.

This happens pretty much every year in Canada. Montreal has riots pretty much every year.

As for soccer riots in other countries, they make this look like nothing. Americans are tame about sports compared to the rest of the world. It's no competition.

On an unrelated note, when the Blackhawks won the cup last year, the streets were un-friggin-real. Streets were blocked off, I saw public fornication on Clark and Diversey in the middle of the street, people running around naked high fiving cops on horses, etc. It was awesome. Happy rioting is always more fun than sad rioting.

When the Colts won the SB it was very tame people running around and hugging each other.

I don't see that happening here. This town is way too fairweathered to care that much(or be that crazy) about their teams.
