Default Are you ready for the riot?

So tonight is game seven of the NBA finals between Boston and LA. As much as I love my team and want the Lakers to win, I know a game seven win here in LA will likely trigger a riot. WTF is wrong with people that they have to use any excuse they can find to destroy other people’s property.

And it’s not just LA. Riots after a major home team win happen in a lot of major cities. Might even happen in Boston if they win tonight.

It’s embarrassing to say I’m a fan when others act so stupid after a big victory.

I'm in Sacramento. Thank goodness the Kings suck.

I'm afraid that here with the Pacers it's a problem I'll never have to worry about!!!

Ditto that for Sixers

Win or lose, there will be a certain degree of rioting in LA tonight. Keep your head down and your powder dry.

Definitely. Good luck Jo, I imagine tonight is going to be some riotous behavior regardless of the outcome. Mob mentality will take over and I can definitely see some cars getting over-turned and ever present fire.

It would be nice to think it won't happen - But I am going with an 80/20 that tomorrow's headlines are going to feature a riot first and who won second.

And what always strikes me as strange is that it's often times the cop’s cars that get rolled and or burned. Then it's like some big surprise that the riot happened. They should have the riot squad lining the streets near the Staples Center and snipers on the roof tops.

That would mean a Police State in the most wonderful and accepting State in the nation, Jo. Duh.

Pelosi, Boxer and company would never put up with that. These fans need an outlet for their joy/deep emotional suffering.

Personally I hope the Celtics win and the National Guard is waiting outside with rubber ammo, Mace shooting fire hoses and an entire baton training unit.

I was going to say National Guard...

But we would have had to call them last month to get them here by tonight.
