Canadians Riot After Game 7 Win, But in Polite Fashion

Montreal Canadiens fans celebrated their team's Game 7 win over the Boston Bruins with the customary burning of cars and looting. In another sign that our neighbors to the north will not be outdone in the "boorish behavior" category, Canada showed once and for all why they deserve to be called the "Detroit of the North."

My favorite tidbit from the riot came from this Canadian Press line -

"The overall level of organization may have been somewhat relative. One merchant said looters walked off with 14 displayed high-end running shoes - all of them for the left foot."

If I were the Montreal police, I'd look for 14 men running really fast...in circles.
