PHILADELPHIA — Workers in Philadelphia are greasing light poles in a bid to prevent Eagles fans from climbing them after the NFC Championship Game.
They’ve put Crisco on the poles in downtown Philadelphia to prevent fans from potentially climbing them later. Wild scene on the streets here downtown 4 1/2 hours before the game.
Officials say the grease should make the poles too slippery to climb.
The workers applying the grease are jokingly calling themselves the “Crisco Cops.”
The Eagles are hosting the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday night. The winning team will earn a spot in the Super Bowl.
