Phillies are 2008 World Champions of Baseball...and pandemonium ensues

The game was incredible, exactly the type of game I wanted to see. A blow for blow, small ball battle and then an incredible outing by the Phillies bullpen. Thank you J.C Romero and Brad Lidge for coming through. You guys will always be winners, and that's what this game is all about.
After the game, my wife and 4 of my friends went running down Broad St and everyone was going absolutely crazy. My hands were throbbing from all the High-fives and my throat was killing me from the screaming. People were going nuts in traffic as some sat in their cars on Broad and others were jumping on top of their own vehicles. By the time we got to Broad & Shunk, the crowd was getting insanely large. There were beer bottles going everywhere people shooting fireworks into the crowd and cops showed up with riot gear. I decided at that point, that it might be a good time to go back towards the car. It was a little over the top, to say the least. I'm pretty sure the media was too scared to bring their cameras that far down Broad St. It was absolute BEDLAM! Below is the little video I was able to capture.
