It all kicks off

Santiago, Chile: After Universidad de Chile won the championship earlier this week (no luck then for Everton this year) it all kicked off in the Plaza de Italia area of the city. Residents there are used to barricading themselves in their homes to escape the tear gas soaked streets, but this year's 'celebrations' led to what the Santiago Times has described as 'an unprecedented night of unrest and vandalism.' Damage is estimated at over $200,000.

I don't remember anything like that happening when we won in the play offs.
