Vancouver fans have a reputation around North America for being obnoxious. Sadly, I actually met a group of those jerks at the Rogers Arena game six viewing party on 13 June. They were lewd, lowbrow, and once Boston put the game out of reach, threatening. If all Vancouver fans were like them, I wouldn’t want the Canucks to win the Cup, either. They joked about starting a riot if the Canucks lost, and swore a blue streak – loudly – despite the presence of kids and seniors. This group of young men and women – of an ethnicity that I will not mention – were, and are, an embarrassment to their families and to Vancouver as a whole. Shame on you, you selfish sacks of crap. Shame.
On the other side, I’ve had the luck to meet plenty of fans of these Canucks who are decent folk partying it up in support of their team. They deserve a championship, and I truly believe in the next few years they will get one. Here are seven of them:
