PHILADELPHIA, Pa. (WTXF) - On Saturday afternoon, workers who jokingly called themselves the "Crisco Cops" greased light poles to prevent Eagles fans from climbing them.
1st District crisco officers are working hard to keep people and property safe in south philly. Go Eagles! @PhillyPolice @FOPLodge5 @PhillyMayor @gregbucceroni @FOX29philly @NBCNews @phl17 @phillies17 @ActionNewsDesk pic.twitter.com/34Ho0oeVM8— PPD 1st District (@PPD01Dist) January 21, 2018
But Eagles loyalists could not be deterred in their celebrations following the team's NFC Championship win.
There might be more Crisco on people's clothes than on the poles after last night - but hope springs eternal! #IThinkWereGonnaNeedABiggerTub— Philadelphia Police (@PhillyPolice) January 22, 2018
Video capturing Sunday night's revelry shows plenty of fans who beat the odds and climbed to their heart's content.
