OFFICE, THEY COULD BE FINED FOR IT. PER VIOLATION. WE KNOW THAT THERE ARE A LOT OF DODGERS — DODGER FANS. HOUSTON IS CELEBRATING TONIGHT AND THE ASTROS WILL RETURN TO TEXAS THEY ARE WORLD SERIES CHAMPIONS. I WANT TO TALK A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THE RETAIL SITUATION TODAY BECAUSE THE FIRST THING YOU DO AT A STORE AND AS I FANNED — FAN YOU DO THIS. Reporter: WE ARE IN THE TEAM STORE AND YOU SEE PEOPLE COMING OUT. THEY KNEW THAT THERE WOULD BE MORE THAN DIEHARD FANS OUT THERE. EVERYONE LOVES A WINNER BUT THEY DID NOT EXPECT THE LEVELS OF PEOPLE THAT WERE GOING TO SHOW UP. WE VISITED AN ACADEMY SPORTS AND OUTDOORS AND PEOPLE STARTED TO LINE UP THERE LAST NIGHT DURING THE GAME IN THE SECOND INNING. THE STORE STAYED OPEN ALL NIGHT AND LAST NIGHT THERE WAS STILL A LINE AROUND THE BUILDING AND THERE WAS AN HOUR LINE WAITING TO GET INTO THE DOORS. COMPANY EMPLOYEES WHO HAVE BEEN PART OF CHAMPIONSHIP ROLLOUTS SAY THAT THE SALES FOR THIS ONE MAY END UP BEING RECORD SETTING. EVERY ROUND HAS GROWN BIGGER AND BIGGER AND WE KNEW THAT THE WORLD SERIES WOULD BE BIG. WE DIDN’T KNOW IT WOULD BE THIS BIG. THE ACADEMY HAS 31 LOCATIONS AND EVERY STAR WAS PACKED AND WE HAD A LINE AROUND THE BUILDING ALL NIGHT LONG. Reporter: I OVERHEARD ONE WOMAN TODAY ON HER LUNCH BREAK ABOUT TO SHOP LOOKING AT THE LINE AND WEIGHING IT OUT AND WHOEVER SHE WAS TALKING TO AT THE OTHER END, SHE SAID I DON’T CARE ABOUT WERE, AND SHE WENT AND GOT INTO THE LINE. MANY PEOPLE WILL NOT CARE ABOUT WORK TOMORROW. THEY WILL BE WELCOMING BACK THE CHAMPS INTO THE HOUSTON AREA. A WINNER TEAM IN YOUR TOWN, WHO
