I wasn't around for the citys' post game Stanley Cup celebration in the early 90s. Today I was in the heart of Oakland and witnessed whatever the hell was on fire in front of Subway, being surrounded by thousands of screaming people and a lot of police. Did the city go as nuts when the Pens won the cup?
I think one of the news anchors mentioned a bunch of broken windows from the 2nd Cup. It''s too bad there are always idiots among the fans of any given team. It puts a damper on what should be a very happy occaision.
