Canadians, angry over a clash with visiting Americans, have gone on a rampage burning stuff, and generally behaving badly.

Shouldn't they have gone to Washington for that? [Wink]

shameful.

Nitro and I were out a walk after the game and we saw a full moon rise over the mainland, a deep orange colour, and I joked, "that must be Vancouver burning." Turns out it was no joke.

You just wanna say to these people: "Hey, ya know it's only a game, right?" (And then run.)

Shameless plug. (Please forgive me.)

It looked like quite a fun game for these two...

It's good to see that at least one Canadian managed to score that day.

There's been a bit of debate about that photo and who the mystery couple are. One of the stories put forward is that the couple were caught in the rioting and the girl fell over injuring her ankle with her boyfriend trying to help her. There's another shot where he's looking up and very obviously looking concerned (and not in a "wonder if anyone can see us snogging" kind of way).

The most important of which is the element of surprise.

The debate can close. He's Canadian, she's an Aussie, and what happened was she got hurt and he was trying to calm her down and help her up.
