Nice to see people using logic and common sense on this board.
I just remembered: last month when FC Barcelona won the UEFA Champions League in soccer, their supporters celebrated on the streets of Barcelona, but later, the celebration turned ugly: broken cars, store windows...stuff like that.
I guess it's just human nature, like demoman said.
I believe people would have rioted in Vancouver no matter the outcome of the hockey game.
If the Canucks would have won it would have been the same thing no doubt.
It's just a shame stuff like this happens.
And it's even worse that public figures - paid from the contributors' money - talk s*hit without knowing what they're talking about.
