Bertuzzi's powdered package

I didn't see this make the rounds on blogs, so here's the link:
A letter arrived at GM Place on Monday containing a suspicious white powder and investigators say the target was Todd Bertuzzi.

The evidence was turned over to the Vancouver Police Department.
And we thought Jose Theodore was the only one cursed by odd occurrences this season.

At the moment, it's looking more and more likely that the Canucks may, indeed, miss the playoffs this season, and there are going to be more than a few (hundred thousand) fingers pointed in Bertuzzi's direction. It's been an atrocious season for a half-dozen Vancouver players and without the play of the Sedin-Sedin-Carter line, they'd be down in Phoenix Coyote territory.

As for the powdered package: There are a ton of crazy, crazy fans out in British Columbia, and I don't doubt this was done by one or more of them. I can't image this Canada Post gift brightened the always surly Bertuzzi's day.

And, as for Vancouver's latest losing streak — five in a row, now that newly acquired Mika Noronen laid an egg last night in his first game as a Canuck — well, it's ugly, and unless things come together in a hurry, the playoff race is going to get away from them.

Hard to believe this team was leading the Northwest Division just before the Olympic break.

I thought only American sports fans were that idiotic...I hope that the "fan" who sent this missive gets arrested. Bertuzzi is a thug, but does he really deserve this?

Don't people have lives? How could sports be so central to someone's life that they could commit an act like this? Malicious stupidity deserves to be paid back in kind.

I blame Leaf fans. Bastards.

No Leaf fan cares about Bertuzzi enough to do that.
On the other hand, Vancouverites are finally reaching the end of their patience with him. The fanatacism here over Bertuzzi could have been turned for one particular crazy person, who did this.

Still, despicable. There's nothing to be accomplished by this and I completely agree with alyosha. Malicious stupidity is the best way to label this.
