L.A. Lakers Fans, Excessive Sugar and Car Fires

While cooking for a couple of Lakers fans near the Staples Center in Downtown L.A. I was able to capture some much more fiery events...



Just minutes after the Lakers victory, fans began running in the streets, screaming, and banging on parked cars.... After an hour or so the excitement had escalated to the point of setting things on fire, such as this cab
....and attemting to upend other cars, such as this yellow cab mini van. They failed to flip the van over, possibly because sugar gives only temporary energy, and what they really needed for the endeavor was protein....
The Verve energy drinks passed out to fans after the victory, like all energy drinks, are nothing more than high sugar and caffeine concoctions....


Clearly, these Laker fans had indulged in too many sugary beverages, resulting in a false sense of strength, incredibly poor judgement, and for the fans that turned arsonist, and the ones that decided to wander onto the freeway while on foot, absolute and complete stupidity.

Eat well, think well!

I am not sure that these fires were due to the excessive intake of sugar, more likely the excessive intake of the fermentation products of sugars and starches from various grains and fruits.
