Rioting and hockey fans go together like pledges and despair. When there’s one, the other is always nearby. It should come as no surprise that fans turned the streets of Los Angeles into anarchy shortly after the Kings won the NHL’s Stanley Cup last week.
Past hockey-induced turmoil has brought us moments such as the Vancouver Kissing Couple:

Sometime during last Friday’s post-victory rioting, a drone appeared above the crowd. It instantly became the most desired object in the city.
Once the drone was knocked out of the sky, jubilant chanting was the obvious next celebratory step.
While there are conflicting reports as to whether this drone belonged to the Los Angeles Police Department or to a private citizen filming the chaos, whoever sent it up that night is wholeheartedly regretting ever believing it was a good idea.
Fucking hockey fans, man. They rival soccer maniacs at times, but they give us some of the best post-game destruction videos of any sport. For that, I have to admire them.
