Eagle fans are waking up on cloud nine after their team beat the Minnesota Vikings to secure a spot in the Super Bowl.

But it could've been a long, hard fall down from victory for fans who decided to climb the light poles on the city's streets.

Fans crowded the streets of downtown Philadelphia to celebrate the team's victory.

In an effort to stop fans from climbing light poles, police used Crisco to grease the poles as an extra precaution.

Did it work? Nope.

The Eagles famously built a special jail in their stadium to incarcerate the team's own fans so, yeah, of course this wasn't going to work.
