We found the one dude in San Francisco behaving himself amidst the World Series chaos

It takes quite the iron will to resist the urge to riot if everybody around you is rioting too. I mean, why do THEY get to see how it feels to smash a traffic light?

One of my favorite memories from the Phillies’ riot in ’08 was when I saw a bunch of dudes knock over a news van for no reason. When people are happy (and/or drunk), sometimes they just love destroying stuff. I bet 10% of those people had no clue they were rioting for a baseball game, they just saw saw the hoard and joined it. It’s contagious.

But footage has been captured of a model citizen who, even as a crowd of drunk people jumped up and down on top of the bus he was riding, was a portrait of peace and relaxation, casually texting on his phone as the world burned all around him.

And so he became The Dude Who Wouldn’t Riot. I’m just going to go right ahead and put him in the Dalai Lama/Ghandi level of respect because if I was in that same position I’d be running around like my hair was on fire, trying to stomp on something.
