Philly is notorious for having, well, very enthusiastic fans. City officials knew this, so they decided to ~be smart~ ahead of Sunday’s NFC Championship game with the Minnesota Vikings.

Act I
It started with a simple request from city officials: “Hey, Eagles fans, plz refrain from climbing light poles if the team wins (or loses).” To further discourage climbing, “Crisco cops” were out in full force greasing light poles prior to kickoff.

Act II
Fans were like, “Challenge accepted.”

Act III
Spoiler alert: The Eagles won by a lot. Some fans, like this guy, decided the best way to show their joy was to scale a light pole, duh. Where there’s a will, there’s a way. (To be fair, though, it was the playoffs.)
