    Default OT: We got The Cup!

    And Big Stanley made his way through my neighborhood in this morning's
    victory parade. There are still vast hordes of wanderers in my front
    yard. In an hour or so I may (OB: Food) get out to do my grocery
    shopping.

    Congratulations to all involved! I heard the crowd up in Canada
    wasn't happy about it either.

    The Stanley Cup makes a visit to the hometown of every player on the
    team, and there are a lot more Canadians playing for Boston than for
    Vancouver.

    It wasn`t so much the hockey fans that went on a rampage. It was mainly
    the disenfranchised dorks who are always looking for excuses to riot and
    loot, white guys with dreadlocks and wearing hemp clothing.

    I believe that.

    That part about dorky white guys with dreadlocks is just plain weird
    (white Rastafarians?). Maybe they're the college boys who moved to
    Canada to escape the draft way back when. And what's so bad about
    hemp clothing? It's the cool thing to be wearing these days and you
    need some serious cash to do it right.

    They all wanna become rafting guides for the Summer. My neck of the
    woods is lousy with dreadlock bedecked blonde kids. So many, in fact,
    there's gotta be an off-the-shelf dreadlock perm or something. It's
    Jheri Curl all over again. :|

    I wonder just how many guys of the age to have escaped the draft have
    enough hair left to perm. And enough energy to riot, too.

    Pretty sad commentary on the state of the alleged sports fan. Not just
    Vancouver, but it has been happening in many cities after the team wins or
    loses. I'm sure most of it is just overuse of alcohol, but it is still a
    setback of evolution and civility.

    Hey, my team just (won/lost) a championship game, Let's go burn some cars
    and smash windows!

    Where were you at the time? The police are culling over all videos and
    photos they can find, to identify and prosecute the people involved.

    That's what I was thinking, too. They'd be in their late fifties, at best!

    Wouldn't those college boys be in their sixties now? And mostly bald?
    The draft flight to Canada was a LONG time ago.

    Okay, ok, if they didn't have enough energy to do it... then their
    children did the rioting - or maybe it was their grandchildren.
