I don't know where you live, but when the Phillies won the World Series they were going just a crazy in Philadelphia and South Jersey as they are in Canada. It depends on the city.

Closing Younge street means only one of two things. Either Canada won a major hockey tournament, or it snowed. Either way, better call in the army.

Front St was closed in Toronto, as well. Right outside the Loose Moose. That place was just off the chain.

To quote the crowd from Y-D Square:

Woooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!

Surprised no one fell from the street signs, there seemed to be a few Darwin candidates scaling new heights.

Who said Burke and Wilson couldn't bring a party to Yonge Street?

That sounds/looks totally awesome.....

As a Kiwi I can relate - if NZ win the Rugby World Cup next year my country will have similar scenes of craziness/partying

Congratulations Canada. What an Olympics!

Awesome! I lived in TO for a couple years and Yonge was closed a couple times for weekend events. This rules though.

In Vancouver, lots of roads were closed for the Olympics anyways, but so many people were out that they had to close off more! What a day

That said, Canada is doing what it should, partying like there's no tomorrow!
I don't know about N.O. but I was living in Kenmore square during the Red Sox 2004 run. The party after they beat the Yankee's in game 7 was huge, and it was crazier that there was a lot of vandalism and it degenerated into a riot, then a running battle with police. Because a young women was killed by a rubber bullet in the ALCS riot, they cracked down hard on people in the street after WS. After the WS win people went out and surrounded Fenway, but before long people were lobbing half full beer cans at riot police, then they just started tear gassing everyone. They tear gassed all the way up comm ave.

I was down on the red mile earlier today and it is a way different atmosphere than Boston was. IMO what's happening right now on the streets is much more of a spontaneous expression of joy. People aren't packed as tight and they are much more emotional. In Boston there were some very emotional long time fans, but a lot of people that went out into the streets were just casual fans (a lot of BU students) that were out there to see what they could see.

I'll sum it up like this, right now in Canada people are going out to celebrate, not to just stand around and observe the celebration.

I was at Jack Astors on Front, holeee sheet, what an incredible atmosphere!! And the party outside on Front in front of Loose Moose was wild, and the party at Y&D was even crazier. I can only imagine how much more insane it would be if the Leafs ever won the cup.
