Canucks fan changed pizza pick-up plan to delivery because game was tied

Ryan-Kesler-CanucksThe Vancouver Canucks have already put themselves on the brink of elimination with a blowout loss to the San Jose Sharks on Sunday night. They are currently trailing 3-0 in the series, but things didn’t always look so grim.

During Game 2 on Friday night, Vancouver fans briefly had their spirits lifted when Ryan Kesler scored in the third period to tie the game. He then scored a second time to give the team a 2-1 lead. As the Vancouver Sun pointed out, one fan placed a pizza order while the team was trailing 1-0, but changed plans after Kesler’s first goal tied the game:

The Canucks went on to lose in overtime, so the fan probably wishes he just left to get the pizza so he didn’t have to get his hopes up. Since this person was obviously a huge Canucks fan, we hope the delivery driver didn’t say anything derogatory about the game when he got there. As we learned last year, that can be enough to get a guy fired.


Milan Lucic’s church in Vancouver vandalized by Canucks fans (Picture)

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.

A Brief History of Fan Rioting: Vancouver Was Just a Copycat

A number of rowdy sports fans can be interesting character studies, that is, if you choose to spend more than three-and-a-half seconds on such a venture. I’m not sure about you, but my time is currently being invested in watching paint dry. Like a Marilyn Monroe movie, some of these individuals like it hot. Others though, prefer to have their Molotov cocktails on the rocks. Regardless, there is a particular segment of the sports-watching population that feels elation or anger over the results of a championship game is a dish best served with a blunt object thrown through the window of a storefront.

The latest band of louts choked the city of Vancouver into requiring the Heimlich maneuver, following the Canucks’ Game 7 loss in the Stanley Cup Finals to the Boston Bruins. In so doing, the city saw its behind suffer a de facto paddling which ensured its place in the world fraternity of cities for which the only requirement of membership is a large band of ne’er-do-wells hell-bent on using sports as an excuse to rid the local Sears of its supply of vacuum cleaners, weed whackers, and inexpensive electronics equipment.

This is not exactly a very new tradition. Europe’s band of soccer hooligans has been stirring up mayhem for years. Though the rules of soccer confine the game largely to feet, it hasn’t stopped the sport’s Guinness-fueled patrons from using hands, flares, and tire-irons to accomplish their goal. Presumably, bearing witness to a 90-minute scoreless tie drives people to do less than law-abiding things. However, if spending an hour-and-a-half of your life watching something where no one scores was the requisite for a riot, then there would be a wealth of pillaging at any of the locations I’ve ever been to while scouring for single women.

The Vancouver Canucks Made this 4-Year-Old Boy Cry

At least Ryan Kesler wasn’t alone in his tears following Wednesday’s Stanley Cup loss by the Canucks. This little tyke seemed pretty distraught after Vancouver lost to Boston. Check it out:

Methinks the mother took away his SpaghettiOs right before she began filming. Seriously, what other four-year-old gets that broken up over a sports team? And don’t say Chris Bosh.

Vancouver Riots After Canucks Lose Stanley Cup to Boston Bruins

Just like in 1994 when the Canucks lost the Stanley Cup Final to the New York Rangers, the city of Vancouver rioted after the Canucks lost Game 7 to the Bruins. If this were anything new, we wouldn’t already have a tag for fans rioting here at LBS. The good news is at least Vancouver saved their riot for after the Stanley Cup Final unlike Montreal which celebrated too early last year. Anyway, the Vancouver riots contained your annual dose of fires, car flips, riot gear, and fist fights. Here’s a sample of what went on:

Here are pictures of cars getting flipped:

Canucks Fan Who Flashed Ben Eager Embarrasses True Female Fans

The female Canucks fan who flashed Sharks winger Ben Eager by pressing her Sedins against the penalty box glass Wednesday night has created quite the buzz on the internet. Hundreds of thousands of people rushed to the ebays to get a glimpse of the fan’s goodies which were shown on CBC’s live Hockey Night in Canada telecast. Unsurprisingly, the display of nudity was met with very little resistance given that most hockey fans are males who love breasts. In fact, the CBS head of media relations said “We received a small (very small) number of emails about it.”

But just because most of the hockey fan base is male and enjoyed the free show, it doesn’t mean there weren’t some offended parties.

Canucks Fan Flashes Ben Eager in Penalty Box During Game 2

At the end of Game 2 between the Canucks and Sharks in Vancouver, one generous blond woman with extremely nice … seats decided to flash Ben Eager who was in the penalty box. Here’s the video from Puck Daddy where the boobs are censored but the video is nevertheless NSFW:

The last time we had someone flash in celebration, it was after the Saints won the Super Bowl. It’s not even the Stanley Cup Finals and the women in Vancouver are going crazy, what could they possibly do if the Canucks actually won it all?
