A riot in Boston after a title win? No way!
The Boston Celtics won the NBA Championship last night with a blowout victory in Game 6 over the LA Lakers. In typical Boston fashion, the fans rioted afterwards. Below is video of fans throwing street signs through a store window.
Really classy. I know it's a little narrow-minded to think that the actions of the fans encapsulate the whole city of Boston, so I won't go that far. But seeing Boston fans rioting and injuries happening after every New England championship is kind of annoying.
You are the toast of the sports world... be happy with that and behave.
In fairness, there were some much more calm displays of emotion by the fans, like in this clip below.
