The Worst Of Hockey Fans

Once again, San Jose "fans" (and I use that word in the loosest of terms when it comes to San Jose) showed their class by booing the national athem of Canada.

Of course, most haven't a clue about hockey to start with and only get on the bandwagon when the Sharks get into the playoffs.

Things obviously haven't changed much in San Jose. I recall during the 2004 series loss against the Flames, they booed the national anthem then as well. Of course, this was after they had to give out free tickets in order to fill up the stadium.

this article points out, a good majority of their key players are in fact Canadian, and probably don't appreciate their "fans" booing their flag, especially when they play so hard for them (Johnathon Cheechoo comes to mind).

So this morning a big slap across the head goes to all the San Jose idiots who think it's fun to show their disrespect to the opposition. It's just a game folks! Lighten up would ya!

Perhaps the San Josians were making a political statement in retaliation for the leftist Canucks who bash America... like the Libranos and Nudies.

Ain't surprising to me. Blame Chretien. Blame Martin. After all, they're responsible.

On second thought, let me rephrase that...

Chretien and Martin are responsible for being terribly irresponsible.

There, that's better! :-)

Nice pic there Conan the

And gameday in Edmonton, two days later, the fans sung and cheered the US anthem at record levels. The singer couldn't hear himself.

I still haven't figured out why we sing the national anthem's at sporting events...

Seeing half or more of the players don't even come from the city they are playing for...
