    Ah, the difference 'tween the Least Coast and the Midwest...

    The goons turned over cars and rioted in the streets after Boston took game six in the World Series over the St. Louis Cardinals, winning 4 of 6 games over the Redbirds.
    The only redeeming thing I ever found in Boston once were the green suspenders from Hooliga....er....Houlihan's Bar.

    Hard to believe that anyone cares that much about a ballgame.

    NCAA basketball.

    NBA basketball.

    European soccer.

    Philadelphia Eagles football.

    Now we add the Boston Red Sox.

    Well, we see the world through our own eyes.

    And you show your ignorance and bias once again:

    Chicago riots after Bulls win

    Disco Demolition night at Comisky Park:


    Ten Cent Beer Night in Cleveland

    Blackhawks Win, Chicago Riots

    Fans attack 1st base coach

    I know most of these are Chicago but since Chicago is in the midwest so the midwest isn't so innocent.

    Explain that to grandpa up there.
    Chitcago isn't "Mid-west"; it's full of imports from all over the country and elsewhere. I lived in Elk Grove Village (a north west suburb), and worked in downtown Chitcago in the sixties, and saw it first hand then.

    There's a hardness or edge to many of the Chicago folk. I lived there a year in Buffalo Grove (near Arlington Heights), one of the NW suburbs. They were more similar to some of the folks from the NY area that I've met here in Sarasot, NY transplants. My college was between Chicago and St Louis. I could always pick out the Chicago area kids. Nothing wrong with them, just different from the traditional MW, more southern version.

    Back to baseball, what in the world would have happened in Boston if the Red Sox lost? Can't imagine the physical devastation and the rampaging in the streets.

    Did anyone notice there were no riots in St Louis because we lost? We're more polite and better sports. But damned it, we lost. Wait til next year.

    I agree.

    I could see that happening if the Cubs won, after all that would be the start of the apocalypse and civilization as we know it.

    Disco Demolition night at Comisky Park
    Great video. The riot really did not have much to do with baseball, it was more about disco music and Harry Carey could not even get the crowd to calm down.

    98 cents admission for two games if you showed up with a disco album and way too many libations, both legal and illegal I think were all contributing factors.

    As for riots after sporting events, they happen everywhere. Not just on the East Coast.
