It's Riot Time In Philly
You know what, despite the fact that I was rooting for the Rays in the World Series, it's clear I'm an idiot. I should have always been rooting for the Phillies. Why? Riots, plain and simple.
Do you really think St. Petersburg would be going nuts if the Rays had won the World Series? Not at all.
In Philly, there's so much pent up anger from years and years of failure that with one of their major sports teams finally having won a championship, all that frustration suddenly gets turned into a destructive joy that makes for tremendous video. Like, say, hijacking a bus tremendous.
Yep, in the video above, you'll see a fire truck slowly creep its way out into a sea of people on Broad Street in downtown Philly. In fact, you might not even be able to tell it's a fire truck at first, because there are 500 people on top of it.
Were people supposed to be on the fire truck? I think you know the answer to that. Considering how many fireworks were shot off in Philly last night, I'm 100% sure that firetruck really needed to get somewhere. But hey, if you're a true Phillies fan, I'm sure you'd gladly take a burned down house for a chance to celebrate a World Series title.
Or have your car flipped. Although having both happen is probably a bit much.
