Canucks and Beyond
by Alanah McGinley on 02/14/08 at 05:14 PM ET
Stumbling around on YouTube the other day, I think I came across The World’s Most Insecure NJ Devils Fan. A collection of 26 videos, 15 of those are fully dedicated to the topic of hating Canucks fans (sweet geezus, Vancouver… what did you DO to this guy??) and most of the rest dedicated to hating the fans of other teams.
While I can appreciate the pleasures of hockey team hatred (i.e. the Avs shall forever remain the “Evil Empire” in my mind, and the Wings aren’t far behind…) I’m not sure I’ll ever grasp the self-delusion of I’m-a-real-hockey-fan-and-you-aren’t. I mean, hell, a few of my favorite people are Avalanche and Wings fans. I worry about their mental health (obviously) but to each his own.
Regardless, I can still respect a good Photoshop effort as much as the next
hockey fan… and this screen capture of Roberto Luongo (created by The World’s Most Insecure NJ Devils Fan) has some potential:
Not bad at all. But after actually watching that video I gotta say it: dude, lighten up.
