Lack of Understanding: Vancouver Canucks Fans Now Booing All the Things
Vancouver Canucks fans have worn many labels in the past.
One moniker, though, has rarely been applied to this hockey-savvy Canadian market: dumb.
The myopic razzing of rookie goaltender, burgeoning star, and likeable muppet Eddie Lack during Sunday's Heritage Piss-a-thon is a clear indicator Nux Nation has finally and comprehensively lost its marbles.
Amidst the chaos of a bounce-back season going sellout, they have no clue who to boo any more.
And it's not like the bad guys could be any blacker in their hats. Leading goal-scorer Ryan Kesler wants to jump ship. Coach John Tortorella is out of his element.
The $7million Sedin twins are producing less than an adult filmmaker in Amish country. General Manager Mike Gillis is offering seafood in trade deadline negotiations.
With all of this hater fodder up for grabs, who do the fans turn on? Who do they reserve for their balled fists of batsh*t fury? The backup. The over-achieving, team first, completely blameless backup.
Well done, Vancouver. You've spectacularly erased the 'I' from 'Hockey IQ'.
