Philly Fan takes Bottle to the Head

While I understand the euphoria that follows when one’s team wins a championship, I cannot understand the bacchanalian revelry that erupts after such a win.

Back in 1999 when I was at Texas and the Longhorns upset #3 Nebraska in Austin (see game-winning catch below), fellow students took to the streets, climbed on buses, got electrocuted in campus fountains and charmined trees throughout campus. We all got a little crazy but no one was hurt.

This year, the Philadelphia Phillies won the World Series (props to former Astro Brad Lidge) and their fans, notorious for crazy behavior, took to the streets in celebration. Thankfully no cars were barbecued, no one lost their life but thanks to YouTube we were given a special glimpse into some specifics.

Take this guy who takes a well-thrown bottle to the head at around the 7-second mark:

Hope it was worth it…
