It was nice to see the Vancouver fans in the arena tonight give a loud applause to the Bruins following their win.
They generously applauded Tim Thomas when he hoisted the Connie Smythe trophy (very much deserved). They also applauded the Bruins players as they circled the ice with the Stanley Cup.
Well done, fans. True sportsmanship, class and dignity.
That’s how you do it.
That said, some fans outside the arena have not been so classy. As I write these lines, they had already overturned a car and set it on fire. I pray that it doesn’t get any worse. Let’s not let those losers spoil the moment.
Congrats to the Bruins and also to the Canucks for a great season and playoff run.
