Admit it: If there’s one city you thought would pick up on the odd, recent “tradition” of turning cars over and setting fires after winning a championship, you figured, “Cleveland.” Me too.
But when you’ve had almost 60 years to think about how to celebrate a sports championship, and watching other cities behave like common criminals, maybe Clevelanders will steer the world of sports fandom in a new direction.
Ciaccia said there were no reports of overturned vehicles or fires. A report that a fire truck was stolen was false, although fans did crowd on top of a ladder truck downtown.
RTA suspending bus service INTO downtown…you can still take the bus HOME. Right now hoping some of you do. #bedtime
