What Is Wrong With People? Last night was supposed to be one of the great nights in sports.  A game seven of the Stanley Cup Finals.  The Boston Bruins and The Vancouver Canucks battled to see who would be this season’s NHL champion.  The game itself was actually a disappointment.  Roberto Luongo was…well…Roberto Luongo and the Bruins won 4-0.

It was after the game where things got sad.  Why does losing (or winning ) a big game give justification to some people to riot.  The footage in Vancouver last night was horrifying.  Let me make it clear though, this is not just a Canadian issue.  Fans in College Park have rioted in the past, most notably after Maryland has lost to Duke.
