SHOTS OF CROWDS SCREAMING, CLAPPING, CELEBRATING, SOTS WITH EXCITED FANS, SHOTS OF STADIUM FILLED WITH CHEERING.
THEY WERE DANCING IN THE STREETS IN ATLANTA LAST NIGHT. AFTER TWO FRUSTRATING SERIES LOSSES IN 1991 AND 1992, BRAVES' FANS ERUPTED IN CELEBRATION AFTER BEATING THE CLEVELAND INDIANS ONE-TO-NOTHING TO WIN THE WORLD SERIES SATURDAY NIGHT IN ATLANTA. THE CROWD OF 50-THOUSAND-PLUS EXPLODED IN A ROAR THAT NEARLY DROWNED OUT THE BOOM OF FIREWORKS OVER ATLANTA-FULTON COUNTY STADIUM. IN THE STADIUM, BEER, PLASTIC CUPS AND UNRAVELING ROLLS OF PAPER POURED DOWN AS FANS RAISED THEIR HANDS IN THE TOMAHAWK CHOP. ONE FAN WAVED A WHITE BANNER THAT READ: ``THE INDIANS ARE GONE WITH THE WIND IN HOTLANTA.'' AND THE PARTY-MAKING CONTINUED OUTSIDE WHERE DRIVERS LEANED ON THEIR HORNS AND HIGH FIVED PEDESTRIANS ON GRIDLOCKED STREETS. EVEN HOUSE SPEAKER NEWT GINGRICH WAS ALMOST SPEECHLESS AS HE LEFT THE STADIUM. GINGRICH CALLED THE WIN "A PERFECT VICTORY."
