ICYMI: Eagles fans went absolutely INSANE after winning the Super Bowl

Well, NFL connoisseurs foresaw it and it actually happened.

The Philadelphia Eagles ended up winning the Super Bowl 41-33 against the New England Patriots, prompting an explosion of jubilee and straight-up lunacy among their fans.

The madness ranged from some quite amusing antics to hands down dangerous behavior, and god bless technology all of it was registered on social media.

Fans swept across the City of Brotherly Love – climbing up lamp posts, looting and even assaulting.

Shenanigans started off with masses of fans chanting insults towards the opponent’s main star, Tom Brady – which is understandable.

Then things get a bit heated when a bunch of free-fall enthusiasts collapsed the awning of the Ritz-Carlton.

And this guy thought it was a Mastodon concert. Ouch.

Despite the local police efforts to grease the street posts, this guy succeeded in climbing one and set off a roman candle to top it all off.

Oh, and they also flipped some cars. Because, of course.

Looting? Check.

No, this is not footage of a zombie apocalypse. It’s just sports fans having some good-natured fun.

It also seems like a fan stole a horse from the police.

A reporter from Slate monitored a police scanner and found things varying from amusing to downright terrifying.

10:40 p.m. “I got about 2,000 college students coming from Walnut Street to 30th to Center City.”

10:46 p.m. “It’s endless, chief. Endless.”

10:57 p.m. “Be advised that someone is flying a drone in the area at 1-5 and Market.”

11:11 p.m. “They’re on top of trash trucks. There is to be no one on top of trash trucks, guys.”

11:25 p.m. “I need to get the fire extinguisher out of my trunk. I got a fire on Broad Street just south of South. Someone lit a Christmas tree on fire.”

11:37 p.m. “This is extremely horrible. We need rescue here. We got someone horribly injured from a fall.”

11:38 p.m. “They’re trying to tear multiple light posts down and I don’t have anyone to counteract it right now.”

11:53 p.m. “We have a large crowd throwing bottles and chanting ‘Meek Mill.’ “

11:58 p.m. “I got a male in custody in this location. He’s saying he’s an off-duty cop.”

12:12 a.m. “At Broad and Market they’re throwing bottles at the cops. Please send SWAT teams over there in case we need them.”

Of course, it wasn’t all hard work for the police; some actually got to enjoy themselves amidst the celebrations.

And how could we not expect something like THIS to happen? One guy thought all the mayhem was the perfect scenario to propose in. Epic man, just epic.
