The Late Movies: Sports Celebrations

Erica Palan

When my hometown team, the Philadelphia Phillies, won the World Series in 2008, I was at a small, crowded bar in my neighborhood. As the final out was called, the room erupted. I hugged my friend and then turned around and hugged at least 12 strangers before running outside and high-fiving every person I saw for the next two hours as the city’s largest street flooded with fans parading toward the stadium. I yelled so much that I was hoarse for the next two days.

Here’s a collection of clips of hardcore fans celebrating their teams’ victories in sports bars around the country. Tell us about your favorite sports victories in the comments!
