It's probably too late now, but since the Red Sox have won three championships over the past 10 seasons, perhaps this advice will come in handy again in the near future: On the night of a possible World Series clincher, don't park anywhere near Fenway.
By and large the celebrations in Boston were peaceful and jubilant, but some members of Red Sox Nation acted like a championship was a new thing, flipping cars, dodging rubber bullets, and generally taking advantage of the party to cause a little damage. It was the perfect storm for trouble—the Red Sox took a large and early lead, giving residents time to congregate, anticipate, and most importantly, intoxicate.
Cars were flipped, because that's what you apparently do when your team wins a World Series. Here's a frightening one, just outside of Fenway, with the poor driver still inside:
And here's another, location undetermined (though reports indicate that most of the property damage took place around Fenway and Kenmore Square, then moving up Boylston toward Copley):

Boston Police reported only nine arrests on the night, but as more images pop up, don't be surprised if that number increases. (Hi, ridiculously photogenic car-flipping guy up top! I hope we're not writing something like this about you in 30 years!) Still, a few scuffles with cops is nothing compared to what went down at some New England colleges.
