It is sad and disappointing and a black eye on a good city. I read one report online about rioting in Van. after the loss to Boston in the seventh game of the Stanley Cup. Some time ago I decided that the huge mountains of money in the sports business and inflated importance of Sports in our culutre was a serious mistake. Something we should turn our backs on. I throw in the antics of the IOC, indifference to concussions in pro sports, hockey fights, professional millionaire athletes who keep ending up in court and jail, and college sports business violations.
By all means go outside and play catch with your kid. You both could use the exercise.
