As some of us already know the US and Canada are in the middle of the Stanley Cup playoffs. Sunday night the Edmonton Oilers went to San Jose to play Game Five.
Only to be booed out during the national anthem. Booed so loud that the people actually trying to sing the anthem were drowned out.
What the fuck? Why would someone boo through a national anthem? Regardless of your feelings for the game or the opposing team it shows a complete lack of respect for both of those.
As its pointed out in the article – the Sharks THREE top scorers are Canadian themselves, not to mention seven other Shark team players.
In my personal opinion when something like this happens, whether in Canada or the US or any other country or sport out there – the home team, home of the fans, should be penalized and then maybe the fans themselves would show a little more respect and class.
