In case you somehow needed more proof that Canadians are more into hockey than anyone else on the planet, the fine folks in Quebec are here to provide it for you.
The Quebec Remparts are hosting the Memorial Cup this year, and the host team was playing the Kelowna Rockets on Friday for the right to play in the Canadian junior hockey championship game. Things went south quickly when the Rockets took a 4-1 lead and a Remparts player was ejected in the second period. Quebec fans decided to show their disgust by raining trash from the rafters.
This is the worst I've seen from any fan base during a game. Wow. And play continues? Even worse. #Remparts pic.twitter.com/bdsUPu0s6v— Kathryn Jean (@msconduct) May 30, 2015
As punishment, the referees gave Kelowna a penalty shot. But not before all of the trash was picked up!

If you think this is the worst fan outrage in Memorial Cup history, think again! At least the seats remained in the bleachers.
A friendly reminder people threw garbage on the ice during the Memorial Cup in Saskatoon, too.... included in the debris was a folding chair— Sunaya Sapurji (@sunayas) May 30, 2015
@msconduct lol.. Nah.. Not even worst in this rink for a memorial cup. 1991 was a doozy..— tim kingsbury (@timkingsbury) May 30, 2015
Canadian junior hockey fandom: where throwing popcorn and soda onto the ice during a playoff game isn't even the worst thing fans can remember happening!
