If the Phillies win

Postby Mookie4ever » Tue Oct 28, 2008 10:51 am

How bad will the violence get in Philly?

There will certainly be rioting and burning cars but I think that the police are prepared and (fingers crossed) nobody will be killed.

The over/under for burning cars is 4.

I say over. At least one will be a police car.

Do you think it would be worse if it were the Flyers or Eagles winning a championship?

I know Chicago went nuts in the early 90's when the Bulls got their first three-peat, but it was pretty tame when the Sox won it in '05.

it might be a little wilder for the eagles since the city has always been a football town first, but the city has really embraced the phillies and i think the excitement level is equal or even greater than it was when the eagles went to the super bowl in 04.


Agreed. But the city has been without a championship for so long that I really don't think you'd see a difference in reaction due to what team won. I think it'll be more elation and exuberance than violence and destruction, I really hope so as well. The last thing Philadelphia needs is to go down as the town who's fans threw snowballs at Santa and burned 15 million cars when the Phils won the WS.

Hal·la·day, n. 1. every fifth day in Philadelphia. 2. a day of rest for the bullpen. 3. innings eater. 4. doc. 5. ace.
