Philadelphia Prepares For The Eagles To Go To The Super Bowl By Greasing Lamp Posts

The Philadelphia Eagles have officially made it into Super Bowl LII, and that means the city of Philadelphia has some work to do to get ready before their team takes to the field in February.

But they're not preparing to host the game, Super Bowl LII will be played in Minneapolis, Minnesota, they're just getting ready for the madness in the streets to ensue after the Eagles win or lose the game.

And how does a city prepare for packs of insane football fans? Why, by greasing the lamp posts, of course!

In Philadelphia they rubbed Crisco on lamp posts to prepare for the NFC championship game, so people won't climb the poles like drunken fools if there's a riot, and they'll surely grease the posts again before the big game on February 4th.

Yuck. Sports teams should be held financially responsible for all damages ( including medical bills) resulting from post-game shenanigans. Or get rid of sports altogether, that works, too.

So if I'm out there cheering with my friends, and the crowd gets crowded, I'm going to go home with my shoulders slimed, for the crime of being bumped. Hope this Crisco washes out, or I'll sue somebody!
