i was “lucky” enough to be living in chicago when jordan drained a last-minute jumper to cap off the bulls dynasty in 1998, one of the most celebrated events in sports history. the result was utter chaos; after three days, the unchecked gun firing, car tipping and drunken driving simmered down, and chicago returned to former status quo.
somehow, i don’t think that boston will be the same, in the wake of the patriots unexpected victory last night. despite the fact that they have brought the first sports title to boston in over 16 years, the scene last night was far from out of control. at the height of the drunken excitement, reports were spreading around the local networks that a man had been arrested for climbing a tree in the faneuil hall area. yes, i think i can safely say that everything is going to be ok.
