Lately it seems like there is more and more rioting by people after major sporting events resulting in large amounts of destruction. It actually really bothers me because I can’t figure out why people want to go out and destroy things after a team wins a game.
Last March or April (I can’t remember) at my college, after we won the national championship for hockey ” title=”Very Happy” /> , for the second straight year people went out of their homes after drinking massive quantities of alcohol and flipped people’s cars – burning them, lit fires in the middle of streets and tore down several signs and so on and so forth.
Now, why on earth do people do this? I don’t find alcohol to be a legitimate reason or excuse nor the excitement of winning a national championship. I mean, this is senseless destruction! Apparently there was a riot at another college in a town south of mine during homecoming weekend. I just don’t see the point. ” title=”Confused” />
Are people becoming more hedonistic and looking for excuses to do things they would not normally do?
