Because I've had the flu and my son in law seems to be fighting it. And because I love a play on words I decided to do this rather sad folk art bird for Paint party Friday! It's been a bit of a bitter sweet week. We all rallied to enjoy the exciting Stanley cup playoffs. The spirit was rampant with flags flying off every car. It was so fun to watch, even though we didn't win.
You may have heard there was a riot after the game in Vancouver, thirty five minutes from where I reside. Well it was not Canuck fans like media first portrayed, it was young liquored filled youth fully prepared to riot, infiltrated, into the amazing crowds of fans . I have a sneaking suspicion these young people would have rioted whether the Stanley cup was won or not!
The opposing Boston team won, with probably eleven Canadian boys on their team. Even though we were disappointed we aren't poor sports! Canadians by enlarge are very polite and display great sportsmanship. In fact the stadium of fan stayed to watch the cup ceremony and cheer everyone on! It was such a warm feeling....until the riot. We all sat eyes glued to the television as we watched cars being flipped and burned, glass being smashed. Wondering if anyone we knew was there. The streets were devastated by thugs, stores were looted.
Fans were irate at the rioting that transpired! The following day eighteen thousand people volunteered to clean up the mess! Social media has rounded up and named the hoodlums and they will be prosecuted. Those young people are now wearing the social media scarlet letter that will be registered in google searches for years to come. Sadly it made our City look bad, even though the good outweighs the bad.
This bird is also for my friend who has some pending changes in her life that make her feel much like this little birdy! Have a great weekend everyone! Check out the other artists on Paint Party Friday!
