    CELEBRATION IN THE STREETS!

    I was watching the closing ceremonies with my roommate tonight and this came up.

    Canada city streets are filled with celebrating people.

    What would it take for that to happen across the U.S.? I mean like numerous cities, not just New orleans or Chicago or New York. Is there anything that could make that kind of thing even happen in the US? The last time I can think of that happening would be end of WW2 celebrations?

    I'm too young to have been alive when we were on the moon, but I'm assuming everyone was huddled around TVs for Apollo 11. Was there celebrating after the fall of the Berlin Wall?

    That's easy an ISU National Championship in Football.

    Iowa State became the Cyclones after they leveled Northwestern in 1895. As the Chicago Tribune (9/29/1895) noted:

    It Comes from Iowa and Devastates Evanston Town'

    Re: CELEBRATION IN THE STREETS!

    Sports wise, there probably isn't anything that would set off a celebration like that. That was an awesome game, with an awesome ending, even if we came out on the short end of it.
