The city of Philadelphia is doing some rather hilarious legwork ahead of Sunday night’s NFC Championship Game between the Eagles and Minnesota Vikings.
Win or lose, it’s assumed the fans in Philly are going to have to let off some steam after the game. As such, the city has workers literally greasing up light poles with Crisco so that fans can’t climb them. The guys and gals doing the work have a special name for themselves, per FOX 9 Sports — the Crisco Cops.
Good morning from Philly where crews from the city are greasing the light poles with Crisco to prevent #Eagles fans from climbing after the #NFCChampionshipGame tonight. #Vikings pregame coverage starts at 3 on FOX9. They call themselves the #CriscoCops pic.twitter.com/w1ZkYWZhYG

Somehow, we’re betting at least a few people figure out how to climb up those suckers tonight.
Good luck, Eagles fans. And stay safe. Also, we highly recommend you take off your underdog masks if you do attempt to shimmy up one of those greasy poles. Just saying.
