Video: Giants fans set fires after World Series win

SAN FRANCISCO — Thousands of baseball fans took to the streets of San Francisco to celebrate the Giants’ World Series victory, with revelers gathering on corners, in parks and at watering holes — and some turning rowdy.

Fans across the city left their televisions and rushed outside, greeting diners, bar patrons and other merrymakers Sunday night after the Giants defeated the Detroit Tigers 4-3 to sweep the Series for their second title in three years.

Some violence and vandalism was reported, with revelers setting a public transit bus on fire, flipping over a vehicle and breaking the windows of several businesses and vehicles, KTVU-TV reported (http://bit.ly/TiYiTi )

When sports fans celebrate their favorite teams success, and not their own, fantasy land gone wild, we need to find all of them, give them serious jail time, as well as finacial punishment, maybe then others will learn not to follow this moron's footsteps. Remember innocent people could have been injured or killed and the Local Fire Dept. goes out on this call, their lives are in the balance.
