Reason #846 why you shouldn't riot: A flash-bang to the balls

Really, Canada?

Frankly, I expected more from our friendly, Molson-loving neighbors to the north.  But, following the Canucks' 4-0 to the Boston Bruins, fans went on a rampage in downtown Vancouver.

Now, besides it being wrong, illegal, dangerous, yada, yada, yada, you really shouldn't riot because, well, you just might catch a flash-bang to your nutsack.  Like this guy...

Actually, that was the best save made by a Canuck all night. Had that been Luongo, it would have gone right through his legs.

But hey, if you don't get your genitals blasted off by police projectiles, you really want to try to capture the moment of your Canadian white-trashiness with a good picture.

Check out the guy trying to get his girl to take a pic of him in front of the flaming car starting at the :10 second mark in the vid below.  When she gets the shot, she jumps in for a couples photo.  Ah, memories.  Boy, there's one for the wedding video!

And I never knew it, but Canadians sure must hate port-o-pots.

But why on earth would you be on top of one. Like this poor sap...

This last one is horrible as rioters attack a man trying to stop people from looting (3:06 mark)

(HT The Big Lead for last two vids)

Already Youtube's Freedom of speech ban has removed the first video.

That's pretty pathetic though. I give them props for having an entire arena sing their national anthem something I've NEVER heard here before. Then they get completely outplayed and the entire city acts like douches. Sad.

at :23 of the second video it sounds like "yeah! fuck tressel!"

It's all fun and games until you get a flashbang to the nuts. And somehow this will get compared to Detroit never mind that Detroit hasn't really rioted since the late 80's with the Pistons victories. All the Red Wing rallies were fairly tame. But hey, I guess once you get that image.....Now Columbus fully deserves their reputation but they are mild-mannered Midwesterners....

I found it again and just re-linked. Let me know if it goes down again.

In response to rioting the Canadian Parliament has commissioned the founding of The Ontario State University. After all, sometimes you should just with the flow.

lol, Tom.

You know had they won the cup you could have displayed the same exact videos and just changed the words a little bit.

This was set in stone when that many people got together outside.

Sad but probably true, Big.
