  •  Heaven forbid that the Vikings or Twins (8+ / 0-)

    would win a championship - no partying on your streets! Ludicrous doesn't come close to explaining this, especially the harsh sentence. Maybe a $50 fine, but c'mon! In the meantime, that wackjob Arizona "pastor" says he would not consider the person who kills Obama a murderer.

    Yeah, the legal system seems fair and balanced.

      at least in the Vikings case, your theory will never be tested.  Now when the Twins won the world series the first time, I was working as a courier (on the parade route) and a cop opened my door and threw confetti in.  I honked in approval - I was lucky I guess - I got off with a smile and a wave.

      when the Gophers won back-to-back hockey championships.  Only, the partying turned into rioting and lots of property distruction, so the police had to crack down.

      But hey, those were just "stupid university kids".
