They Sure Know How To Celebrate A Win In Russia

You think Boston fans were out of control after the Celtics won the NBA Finals? (OK, maybe they weren't.) Regardless, nobody has anything on the Russians.


After Russia's win over the Netherlands in Euro 08 over the weekend, their fans were really going nuts.

Moscow is naked, drunk, all covered in broken glass; figures “3″ and “1″ have been [snatched away] from all currency exchange displays […].


[Tverskaya St.] is cordoned off, girls are lying on car hoods and roofs, people are attacking empty garbage and dump trucks, getting inside, beating on them, screaming; all guys are naked, some of them have beautiful bodies; girls at the sidewalks take their t-shirts off and walk around topless; everyone is impossibly happy, carrying each other on the shoulders, kissing, running to hug with strangers and drivers of the cars passing by; nothing like this has ever happened before, traffic rules are gone to hell, a road hysteria has begun.

Heavens! We are very pleased this didn't happen when the Cardinals won the World Series.
