Friend's Status

Dylan Benedetto
q minutes ago It
So I hear Chicago has a soccer team named the Chicago Fire. That' s pretty cool,
naming a team after the worst disaster in their cities history. That takes halls, you
don' t see any other cities doing that. You don' t see the New Orleans Katrina' s. [Jr the
Boston Massacre' s. [Jr the Oklahoma City Bombings. [Jr the New York Jets.

Florida has two ice hockey teams, the Solar Bears and the Everblades. I guess even we accept that Florida playing ice hockey is a joke.

Hey man, the Everblades are awesome

I hate to be that guy, and maybe your making a joke, but Florida's two hockey teams are the Panthers and the Lighting.

Their 2 NHL teams. They do have 2 teams called the solar bears and the Everblades in the ECHL.

I'm Canadian, i know these things.
User avatar #7 to #6 - lilgeo (11/06/2013) [-]
I just thought you were getting at the Lightning being Solar Bears and the Panthers being Everblades, because you know panthers have sharp claws.

Because the people realize that whatever doesn't kill (all of) us makes (the remainder of) us STRONGER!

8 soldiers shoot 5 people in a mob that was surrounding them and harassing/ insulting them. The only reason it was called the Boston massacre is because a heavy pro-patriot newspaper said so.
User avatar #21 to #16 - quadrilateral (11/07/2013) [-]
So... they fired upon people who really didn't pose a threat to them?
Yeah, they must have been the good guys there.
User avatar #26 to #21 - zomaru (11/07/2013) [-]
Actually, People were literally in their faces on all sides, and throwing stones at their faces. Had that initial shot not been fired by a soldier scared out of his mind, it could have ended horribly for both sides. As it was, they only fired into the crowd because they heard a shot and their instincts kicked in. And the entire time the commander was telling them to hold fire and stay calm.

No, it wasn't a massacre, it was an accident that the patriots ran with.
User avatar #28 to #26 - quadrilateral (11/07/2013) [-]
That's pretty interesting. Way I've always been taught was that the colonists were having a protest, and the soldiers fired upon them without reason.
Interesting to hear what sounds to be a much more true version.

I have studied and wrote a college paper on it (got a C).
But ya, They were just stationed down at the docks when a bunch of dockworkers got off, the dockworkers were pissed at them, blaming everyone in a red coat for taxes and everything else (america, even after the taxes Britain would have imposed, would still have the lowest tax rate of the British colonies.) A drunkard started spouting **** in front of the redcoats and them more and more workers started to join it. It escalated quickly, and soon the workers were threatening them with their hammers.

Any way, afterword, they were found not guilty after, I think John Addams, gathered the evidence. (Also, executing foreign soldiers might have looked bad.)

Or the Washington Redskins! Oh wait... For reals, they may actually be changing their name soon because a small minority are offended...

Ok, I'm from MA and even I know the massacre wasn't even a real massacre, but a stretch of the truth by patriot extremists. It'd be better if it was "The Boston Marathoners" or "The Boston Bombers".
User avatar #32 to #30 - masdercheef (11/07/2013) [-]
Boston Bombers actually sounds pretty good. It's catchy.
User avatar #33 to #32 - samxdaxman (11/07/2013) [-]
****** right? Too bad most people in the state get booty bothered when you mention the bombing in anything unless you add "boston strong" at the end.
User avatar #38 to #33 - masdercheef (11/07/2013) [-]
And nowadays in Connecticut, people are so damn tense over the Sandy Hook shootings last year. Seriously, it's been a year- I understand that it was a bad thing and all, but you don't have to be on a goddamn hair trigger over it all the time.
User avatar #39 to #38 - samxdaxman (11/07/2013) [-]
Exactly. It's a bit more understandable if you live in the area, but there are people living across the state getting pissy at it. Seriously, chill the **** out people.

yeeeeah
pretty sure the Boston Massacre is not Bostons biggest disaster
#114 to #19 - bann ONLINE (11/07/2013) [-]
Weirdly no...New England is a pretty safe place. We have snow, but that rarely kills anyone in the modern age.
#49 to #19 - Snowplows ONLINE (11/07/2013) [-]
Of course not, has everyone forgotten that 21 people died in a flood? Of Molasses.
User avatar #50 to #49 - princessren (11/07/2013) [-]
The Boston Molasses
User avatar #22 to #19 - kaisermike (11/07/2013) [-]
The Boston Teabags perhaps?
