Now that’s what I call taking it too far. We all know the story of what an incredibly terrible person Milan Lucic is. He grew up in Vancouver and had the nerve to be drafted by the Boston Bruins. Not only that, but he was then enough of a d-bag to make it to the Stanley Cup Finals with Boston and win a championship by defeating his hometown team. Imagine the nerve?
The fact that Lucic is from Vancouver and plays for one of the Canucks’ biggest rivals infuriates Vancouver fans. As you can see from the photo above that Lucic’s girlfriend Brittany Carnegie shared on Twitter, some of them have no shame when it comes to expressing their displeasure with Milan for sleeping with the enemy.
Just like the Canadiens fans who cheered when Zdeno Chara took a puck to the face on Wednesday, these fans took it way too far. Vandalizing anything because you don’t like a player is uncalled for, let alone a church. Unfortunately there are some fans out there who have no concept of when enough is enough, and — as we saw from the riots following last years Stanley Cup — many of them happen to live in Vancouver.
