Sunday's Dump & Chase: Welcome to Vancouver!

I've got a ton of respect for Canucks fans. These are Real Fans, folks. They bleed blue and some sort of green, giving their all, letting the whole league know "they're out there". How do we know they care? Well, they burned the city to the ground after a playoff loss and I don't think you can get more committed than that. Plus, they have those dudes in the bodysuits who are apparently in something called the Fan Hall of Fame which seems totally legit and very prestigious. I'll be watching the game very closely tonight, but mostly I'll be watching the stands. We have a lot to learn from these fine people.

So he's a Bruins fan, huh? I'm not sure the world is ready for a drunken, hyper-violent Dalai Lama. Very troubling.
