    Yes, I'm going to make this political. What is it with blue cities and liberal bastions rioting immediately after championship games? And usually, it's the winning team that riots, which is odder even.

    And yes, it does seem to follow certain cities with particularly pent-up angst. And they tend to be among the bluest out there.
    Why make it political? What is the point? A city's majority political lean has nothing to do with how likely it is that a riot could occur. Riots can occur anywhere.

    Hell I believe in it. After coming back down from 0-2 I can believe in anything.

    That's so hawt
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.
