Well, you knew it was gonna happen. Once the Dodgers secured their first championship in over three decades, the city of Los Angeles was going to erupt with force.

In a year with so much misery, devastation, pain, and heartbreak, Los Angeles has been blessed enough to at least become the home of two major sport championship teams. The Dodgers and the Lakers brought home trophies nearly two weeks apart from one another. So fans had already been warmed up for the party.

Understandably, in the middle of a pandemic, the city, the mayor, and even Vin Scully himself asked fans to refrain from taking to the streets to celebrate. But when you’ve waited 32 years, it’s hard to be told that you can’t enjoy it with friends and loved ones.
The best hope is that everyone did their best to socially distance, to mask up, and to respect each other during the party.
Oh, by the way, THE DODGERS ARE WORLD CHAMPS!
