Friday’s Dilemma: What were these two thinking?
Canadians are a placid bunch. Usually. Where ice hockey is concerned, primal passions arise. All kinds of primal passions, as the pic below shows.
What happened yesterday in Vancouver was shocking. The local NHL team, the Canucks, lost the final match of the Stanley Cup and riots soon engulfed the city. Vancouver’s top cop blamed “anarchists and criminals”, but it appears regular hockey fans were involved too, given there were over 100 arrests.
Vancouver has never won the Stanley Cup, the ice hockey equivalent of baseball’s World Series. So locals were entitled to feel frustrated after leading the seven match finals series 3-2, then blowing the last two games.
But were they entitled to riot? Of course not. If you ask us, these two had the right idea. While their city burned, they fiddled. With each other. Do you approve? And can you come up with a better caption for this wonderful photo than Ant’s effort? Pucker up, Punchers!
