What You need to Know:
1. Hockey is to Canada what Baseball is to America, what Soccer is to Brazil, what coke is to Colombia - it is simply what they do best and are proud of it. (and really it's the only thing they're good at)
2. Canadians are usually regarded as mellow, gentle and generally unthreatening people (see: Justin Bieber, Drake, and William Shatner)
3. Vancouver is in Canada, Stupid (I capitalized that because it's your title for not knowing that). Anyway, this happened because a Canadian team lost the Stanley Cup Finals to the Boston Blah-blahs. This especially stings because no team wants to loose to a team from Boston. Boston sports clubs tend to have some of the most pompous fans in all of sports. (See: Boston Red-Sox)
Bonus: I may have reached a personal record for how many people I can offend in a single post. At least it's not Feminists or PETA this time. Those people are scary.
