I remember listening to hockey long before I could see it. My grandpa and I would listen to hockey games in the 80's and it was my strongest bond with him. Listening to Jim Robson and Gary Monahan was an exciting time for us. My grandpa passed away 4 years back and hockey hasn't felt the same since. That being said, I went downtown yesterday with a heavy heart thinking of how I wished my gramps could be here to witness history.

And now, in some morbid way I'm glad he wasn't here to see what happened. It was hard enough for him to explain 1994 to me. The disappointment of losing combined with the strong reaction would have been too much for him.

Anyways, I thought I would share some more photos of what I am having to deal with at this point.


I don't understand how some people can be so hateful.

Fortunately, I called the River Rock Casino Security and they might have an angle on where my car was parked and be able to provide footage of the parties involved. I told the guy what happened and he was equally as upset as I am.

I'm glad there are people like him, K-Dub, Ronin, MajinHurricane and the various people I've witnessed on Youtube and other sources who have the courage to to fight for what is right. Seriously, if I come across any of you, I'd buy you a beer.

Hopefully I can get some video footage of the fucking assholes who fucked up my car.

Kev


That fucking sucks dude.

Sometimes I wish we had gun rules like 3rd world counties... I would gladly murder these fags and feel good about it.

I feel sorry for the guy who was trying to defend his truck and then got beat down...that along with everything else was so hard to watch...

Even if he gets a new truck, who's going to compensate him for getting beat up or knocked out, etc?

I didn't walk around much, but there was glass in the area near me. Not sure if from last night or what.

- Both side windows smashed
- Rear hatch glass smashed
- Rear hatch dented
- Front passenger side bumper damage
- Rear bumper damage
- Driver's side mirror pulled backwards
- Slurpee all over my hood
- Dents on my roof and my sunroof caved in from someone standing on the car.

Trying to sell the car right now too. A huge dec is going to kill my resale value. I'm probably out $2-3k in resale if not more.

I was downtown too at Ap Gu Jung on Robson. Once we saw the car was on fire we left and got back to Richmond. Watched all the craziness on TV with a pit in my stomach wondering what is wrong with people.

Then I wake up to discover my car like this. I'm just lost for words as to how a city can behave like this.

Sorry to hear about this, man. I too had hoped that no RS'ers had their cars vandalized or burnt, but sadly this doesn't seem to be the case. I'm so glad I didn't bother driving into DT yesterday to watch the game like I had originally intended. Hell, I'm glad I decided to watch the game at my friend's place in Surrey instead. First time I can honestly say I've felt safer in Surrey than Vancouver... That said, they would have had a hell of a time trying to flip a car that's only a couple inches off the ground...

Hope ICBC helps you out.

Last night, there was a video of a bunch of guys breaking into a car and stealing a bunch of stuff from the inside. Does anyone have this vid? It was deleted from YouTube.

Y'know...the Asian guy with the silly look on his face stealing a bag.

I need it for another picture I'm sending the VPD of another guy that smashed that car.

Thank you for doing this!

I was wondering will you be posting your "profiles" here for us to see?
