You may have been sleeping by the time the Vancouver riots hit full force late on Wednesday night, but things got somewhat out of control following the Canucks Game 7 loss to the Boston Bruins. There are plenty of photos to demonstrate the post-game chaos that ensued. And then there is also this video, which shows a young fan taking a police flash grenade right in the unmentionables:
Clearly that fan had a far less pleasurable rioting experience than our friends in this riot photo, seen making out in the street with the angry mob and police around them.
Of course, the riots aren’t all laughs. There was plenty of real destruction done and certainly injuries. Official reports on both of those are yet to emerge.
