I watched the end of the game (along with about 100 others and half the riot cops) through the window of the Cask & Flagon. Then things started to pick up. It got awfully uncomfortable as I was trying to get home and couldn’t make it because the crowd was squeezed so tightly. Got some interesting pictures of people dancing on their cars on Boylston street, and the massive Jeep fire in front of Burger King down the street.
Apparently the Jeep had NY plates, and when they couldn’t tip it over, they smashed out the windows and set the interior on fire. I was trying to study in my room again by that point but some people who were watching called Cruftlabs to tell me I should get some pictures. Miroh was standing in front of the Sovereign Bank when the crowd smashed out the windows and the riot cops shot a smoke grenade at them (which is designed to look like tear gas).
I knew there were more good reasons for not owning a car in Boston, aside from the expense, the pain-in-the-ass factor, and the fabulous public transportation system.
