About 40 minutes later—at 12:30 a.m.—Dick’s Sporting Goods at Rio Shopping Center in Gaithersburg had opened its doors to customers hungry to buy merchandise saying “World Series Champions.” Lines that were amusement-park long, there was a local news crew doing live shots and the merchandise flew off the shelves. This was all happening at a time when most people are usually fast sleep.

Dick’s closed at 3 am then re-opened at 7 a.m. on Thursday to more frenzied crowds looking to gobble up what merchandise remained. By 9 a.m.—the normal store opening time—the majority of the merchandise, especially shirts, hats and hoodies, was gone but still some remnants remained.
