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…

Jones AT&T Stadium at its Best

The Texas Tech Red Raiders play their unique brand of football at some joint called Jones-AT&T Stadium. The stadium recently flooded and shots were taken.

Seizing the moment, some industrious soul put his Photoshop skills to work:

The pic (from disco tech! via shaggy bevo forums) deliciously cracks on Texas’ opponents, for example:

  • The Manginokrakken about to devour Texas Tech Coach Mike Leach’s pirate ship
  • The Aggie Corps of Cadets guy who forgot that Martika wrote a song about him.
  • Not sure who the flummoxed Aggie with the backward hat is, but the fact that he’s sporting his lid like that is funny enough, as for the bewilderment, that’s par for the course.
  • The Aggie (mid right) who thought that his truck was U-571, straight board shut!
  • Of course the Katrina looter, rocking a skullet of all things, with a Heineken in his back pocket making his alma mater proud is priceless, but…
  • Not nearly as priceless as Big Game (so-called) Bob Stoops about to eat his visor
  • Last, but certainly not least is the standard bearer for this masterpiece, the OU crying kid

And who says we’re not using technology to worthwhile ends?
