One killed in Patriots celebration

Recommended Posts

BOSTON -- New England Patriots fans turned rowdy after their team's Super Bowl victory, flipping cars and lighting small fires as thousands swarmed the streets. One person was killed when an allegedly drunken driver backed his sport utility vehicle into a group of revelers.

In Kenmore Square, near Boston University, college-aged fans thronged the streets around garbage fires Sunday night. A local television station reported that one of its vans was vandalized, and the crew had to be escorted from the area by police.

Across town near Northeastern University, fans flipped about a half dozen cars.

An SUV struck several people early Monday, killing James Grabowski, 21, of West Newbury, and injuring three others, one critically. The SUV was stuck in a crowd of revelers when the driver put the car in reverse, then shifted into forward, striking pedestrians and a police officer, authorities said.

Grabowski was the son of State Police Capt. Daniel Grabowski. The family had no comment Monday.

Yeah, I mean, why do people need to riot in cases like this... I mean really, what if the point... "Yay! My team won! Let's go start some fires and roll over that dudes car! Yeah, totally awesome!"

I swear, some people are stupid... :no:

One thing I must say about NYC, when our teams do win we handle it so well. This is such a shame.

i guess after 26 world series titles its just not as big of a deal anymore.

its so funny when people cause mass destruction even though their team wins.

i was at osu lastyear when osu beat michigan and capped thier undefeated reg season... before winning the title... and it was crazy in the streets. you woulda thought that osu lost 69-0.

its a shame that people cant just have fun.

The problem is way too many people get way too drunk while watching the game, and then rush into the streets around here. The parade was fine, nothing went wrong there (except for it being a little bit crowded) mainly because only people from Southie are drunk at that time of the day.

That really does suck, but isn't cool at all. If people can't even look after themeselves then how will they look after others?! :o
