Embrace The Hate Wrap Up

It's been quite a week, hasn't it Canucks fans? We're seeing bile and vitriol being spewed at the boys in blue & green (and the fans) at levels that are rapidly approaching 2011 levels. Here's a wrap up of some of the most awesome irrational, nonsensical, bizarre and just plain stupid Canucks hate of the last week on Twitter.

Congrats to the Seattle Seahawks, who hung on against the San Francisco 49'ers to win the NFC Championship for a berth in the Superbowl against the Denver Broncos.  But wait, what does this have to do with the Canucks?  We're still trying to figure this out...





The level of anger is hysterical...


and the winner, from Ann Frazier of Fear The Fin who exposes the deep-seeded neurosis that is plaguing a number of hockey fans these days:


Yes, the Seahawks are terrible people who bribed the officials, like a hockey team you hate and have terrible taste in music.  They're the ones who should feel shame, right?

Meanwhile, since you probably didn't hear about it, there was a bit of an incident during the Canucks/Flames game Saturday night.  People on Twitter responded with the kind of thoughtful, coherent and level-headed analysis Twitter is known for:

Loved this exchange between TO radio guy Greg Brady and Flames 'Journalist' Eric Francis:



Nothing better than seeing a journalist call for a deliberate injury on a player.  Which reminds me, we'll probably have a ton of these from tomorrow's game against the Oilers...

And our buddy Jason Botchford at the Province is probably still all broken up over this...


I don't think you can justify John Tortorella's actions at the end of the first period.  He blew it, and deserves a suspension for that.  But it's pretty obvious why he was so angry.  The Flames were the clear aggressors in the incident, and anyone with even a rudimentary understanding of the game could see that, right? (Well apart from PJ Stock, anyway)



Speaking of over-reactions...


This one was my favorite.  Won't someone please think about Her Majesty, The Queen!


We'll have lots of post-suspension reaction/outrage today, as we prepare for what should be more of the same as the Canucks head to Edmonton tomorrow.
