Videos: Red Sox fans riot, flip cars after World Series win over St. Louis

On Wednesday night, the Boston Red Sox beat the St. Louis Cardinals, 6-1, to win Game 6 and the 2013 World Series. It was the franchise’s third Series title in the last decade, but the city of Boston celebrated like they had broken the Curse of the Bambino.

By celebrate, we mean thousands of fans drank a bit too much, got a bit too rowdy, and perhaps flipped over a few too many cars.

What better way to celebrate clinching a World Series title at home for the first time since 1918, than by flipping some cars. It’s like these fans thought they were in Morgantown, West Virginia.

Apparently, the driver was still inside when his or her car got flipped in this extremely *NSFW* clip. Deadspin reports that this was shot just outside of Fenway Park.

You can actually hear the car crunching as it is flipped, then the clip cuts to a group of fans climbing up onto a traffic light pole.

Finally, if you have nine minutes to spare, check out how the celebration at UMass Amherst quickly spiraled out of control. Organizers set up a massive outdoor screen for fans to watch the game and even an inflatable gladiator fighting area for fun.

At first, things were pleasant. However, the situation devolved as riot police began to tear gas anyone in the vicinity.

    Wow, there is NO mention of anyone misbehaving in any Boston papers this morning.

    Funny how the major news media chose not to mention this. This is the same city that sought sympathy when everyone was boo-hoo’ing when a couple of clowns set off some bombs and put the city in lockdown? Typical alcohol-fuled “‘Murika!” clowns. Nothing says winning a World Series like flipping over a car while the guy is still INSIDE it. Foock-you Boston.

      Actually. Nobody was in the car. So fuck you, Ben.

        Actually, read the article: “Apparently, the driver was still inside when his or her car got flipped in this extremely *NSFW* clip. Deadspin reports that this was shot just outside of Fenway Park.”

          Do you see the guy in the car, in the video? I was there when this was happening and there was nobody in the car. One car was flipped in the entirety of Boston and the guy found out because he left his apartment in the morning to go to work and found his car flipped. Nobody was hurt.
