Penn State students latest rioting idiots

Fans in Montreal and Vancouver are rioting today. No, not because of a first round series win or because of their overrated, mediocre goalie buckled under the pressure again.

Fans in both cities are rejoicing because despite the fact theyve both been involved in some of the stupidest riots in history, there is a new undisputed champion in town.

The Guinness Book of World Records announced today that the Penn State fans and rioters have officially set the record for dumbest riot of all time.

Why did Penn State fans riot? Were they protesting an unjust ruling or the unfair treatment of a popular figure? No, they were protesting the firing of a man who attempted to cover up the horrible sexual abuse of children.

As were sure youre all aware by now, former Penn State head coach Joe Paterno was fired after it was revealed that Paterno was aware of some horrible, awful abuse against children taking place at Penn State. Rather than going to authorities, he basically ignored the issue and downplayed it to Penn State management.

When Penn State fans found out Paterno was fired, they decided football was way more important than all the ruined lives caused by administration's ignorance and started a riot.

I hate to say Im excited in a situation like this but now Montreal looks so much less stupid, said Canadiens mascot Youppi. Sure, our fans are dumb enough to burn cop cars after a first round win but at least were not celebrating atrocities against children!

Vancouver Canucks mascot, Fin, shared similar sentiments.

Weve been taking crap since June for our riots. Our fans smashed cop cars, ruined stores and threw things at Milan Lucics elderly grandparents. Those jerks at Days of YOrr wont shut up about it, though they are hilarious and hurtful at the same time, Fin said. But now...no one is even going to mention us ever again when the subject of riots come up. We rioted after a Game 7 Stanley Cup loss. Those expletive deleted morons at Penn State should all be pummeled by Shawn Thornton."

There are scum bags and then there's you, Penn State rioters. Football isnt even close to important in this situation. You started a riot to protest the firing of a man who allowed atrocities against children to continue because he couldnt be bothered to go to the police.

Because of him and others at the university, a countless number of children will be forever damaged. And you respond by rioting? You are the absolute dumbest group of people. You have to go to bed at night knowing that you rioted to support the abuse of children, because that is basically what it comes down to.

You can rationalize it anyway you want, but if you participated in or celebrated this riot even for a second you were basically raising your hand and saying that sexual abuse against children is okay as long as you run a semi-successful football organization.

There is absolutely no excuse at all for what happened at Penn State. If you participated in, approved of, or cheered the riot you deserve to get punched in whatever set of genitals you have. Repeatedly. If you have a daughter or son or nephew or niece or grandchild or any small child you are close with and they are unlucky enough to get abused, know that you cant really be mad because you CELEBRATED this by participating in this riot. You are giant pieces of crap and you deserve all the worst things in life to happen you. Go rot in a hole somewhere you morons.

WATCH: Bruins' Backes battles with Benn right after opening faceoff

Now THIS is old-time hockey!

There's bad blood between the Bruins' David Backes and the Stars' Jamie Benn that goes back a long way, most recently in last spring's Dallas-St. Louis playoff series when Backes was still with the Blues. They met again today -- and the ungodly (hockey) hour of 11:30 a.m. Dallas time -- for a nationally televised game between Backes' new team, the Bruins, and the Stars.

And it didn't take long for the two to renew acquaintances . . .

Pistons to honor Hamilton, who had impact on several Celtics

Pistons to honor Hamilton, who had impact on several Celtics

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. -- The Detroit Pistons will retire the jersey number of former UConn star Rip Hamilton tonight, an instrumental figure in the Pistons’ success in the early 2000s that included an NBA title in 2004.
 
Although Hamilton never played for Boston, his impact can be felt within the Celtics locker room.
 
Boston’s Amir Johnson spent his first four NBA seasons as a teammate of Hamilton's in Detroit.
 
In that time, Johnson acknowledges how many of the positive things folks associate with him come from lessons he learned from Hamilton.
 
“He was so relentless when he ran,” Johnson told CSNNE.com. “I remember working out with him one summer. For him to even get his shot off, he sprints full court, goes back down shooting shots, and he just kept doing this over and over and over again, full court sprinting . . . To see that as a young kid, and at his age, just working hard like that, it was great to see.”
 
James Young grew up in nearby Rochester Hills, Mich., so he watched Hamilton’s scoring prowess up close and personal.
 
And as he continued to evolve as a player, Young would see Hamilton during the summer months while attending Hamilton’s basketball camps.
 
“I was there every year, won MVP a few times,” Young told CSNNE.com. “He’s a great guy, a great player.”
 
And, like Hamilton, Young has a lanky frame for an NBA player, which was among the many reasons Young acknowledged Hamilton as being one of his first significant basketball influences as a youth.
 
“For sure,” Young said. “His mid-range game was crazy, great shooter. He was always consistent.”
 
And that consistency has paid off in the highest honor an NBA franchise can bestow upon a player.
 
“That’s big time,” Johnson said. “He’s a champion, great father, great baller. To have his jersey retired is an honor. To see the success he had in the league, and to see his jersey retired with the greats, it's definitely an honor. I’m glad I’ll be there to see that. Kudos to him. He’s a hard worker. Had a great career. I had my high school jersey retired, but to get your NBA jersey retired, that’s great.”
 
Hamilton played 14 seasons in the NBA, nine of which were with the Pistons. A career 17.1 points per game score, he averaged 18.4 with Detroit and was named an Eastern Conference All-Star three times (2006-2008).
 
Although he is known as one of the greatest mid-range shooters of his era, Hamilton began to expand his range over time. During the 2005-06 season, Hamilton shot 45.8 percent from 3-point range (most of them being corner 3’s), which led the NBA that season.
