    I really don't understand why folks think they must burn up their town after a major football, or basketball game. These hooligans trashed and burned when the Oakland Raiders won their division last week, and destroyed more after their major a** whooping last night at the Super Bowl.

    It seems such lawlessness follows every major sporting event except for the US Open tennis finals, and NASCAR.

    But still, football is just a game. The ones that really have a right to burn and riot are the fans that went to the game and spent $2,000-$6,000 for a ticket to see such a sorry game, pay $5 for a box of Cracker Jacks, $8 for a cup of beer, or $175 to park, plus have to endure 2 hours of frisking by cops.

    I think the riots are terrible, but I could never understand why a winning team would riot. Must be built up testosterone! :(

    I can never understand why anyone would riot after a sporting even period. Who cares? Gee, which corporate group of millionaires do I like better? Oh No! The other group of millionaires won, I better riot.

    It was on the local news that the cops used tear gas against these nitwits. i say give ol' Saddam Hussein a call and use some mustard gas on these scum. Or just napalm, whatever, get rid of them!
