The Washington Capitals truly set the bar for championship celebrations after their summer of parties with the Stanley Cup this year. Now other sports teams are expected to live up to the fountain-swimming, public-singing, drinking-beers-through-jerseys standard, but Devante Smith-Pelly has two words for would-be contenders: “Good luck.”
After the Boston Red Sox won the baseball World Series last night with a 5-1 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers, Toronto Star columnist Bruce Arthur wondered on Twitter if they would party as well as the Caps. On the same night the Caps re-kindled their party-animal spirit at the team’s Halloween shindig, Smith-Pelly, was dubious.

DSP’s assessment seemed to represent the consensus, with most of the responses to Arthur’s tweet acknowledging the Red Sox have their work cut out for them if they’re going to out-party the Caps.
<Narrator> They couldn’t.

Did you see Ovi’s Instagram stories of his weekend with the Cup? Red Sox don’t have a cat’s chance in hell

Even Arthur noted in a follow-up that the Sox don’t have a prayer.
oh I don't think they have a prayer

After all, you can’t even drink beer out of Major League Baseball’s Commissioner’s Trophy, much less do a keg-stand on it.
