Behold: The City of Brotherly Love Erupts

With apologies to our readers in Philadelphia we offer this headline to the collective facepalm of the rest of America.

In typical fashion, Philly fans erupted, after the final seconds of the Super Bowl, in celebration of the Eagles’ iconic victory.

That eruption was replete with overturned cars, street fires, smashed windows, vandalism and general mayhem all over the city.

The ‘City of Brotherly Love’ descended into the City of Juvenile Delinquency with dozens arrested and injured in the shadows of Independence Hall where the founding fathers signed the Declaration of Independence.

They’re almost certainly facepalming in their graves.

Here’s more from Hotair…

Naw… I’m just kidding. They tore the city up.

Following a grueling match which went down to the final second in what was arguably one of the most exciting Super Bowls on record, fans of the victorious Philadelphia Eagles took to the streets of the City of Brotherly Love. Many were simply joyous and looking forward to welcoming the Lombardi Trophy to their town at last. But a significant number of them went and did what Eagles fans are known all too well for. They began ripping up the infrastructure, setting fires and flipped over at least one car in front of City Hall. (Business Insider)

The Philadelphia Eagles’ first Super Bowl victory set off rowdy celebrations in Philadelphia as people who poured into the streets set at least one fire and damaged property early on Monday, images on social media showed.

Joyous football fans burst into jubilation in gatherings at bars and took their party into the streets, jumping up and down, setting off pyrotechnics and singing the fight song “Fly Eagles Fly.”

Some went further and ignited a fire in the middle of a street that firefighters soon extinguished. Other images showed a light pole tipping over and the Philadelphia Inquirer and Daily News website reported smashed windows and toppled awnings.
