The Philadelphia Police Department is currently preparing for Eagles to destroy the city if the team beats the Minnesota Vikings in Sunday’s NFC championship game and advance to the Super Bowl.
In a letter released to businesses owners on Wednesday, Police Commissioner Richard Ross Jr. warned that celebrations could spill into the streets and cause property damage.
“”Businesses in the area of Cottman and Frankford Avenues in Northeast Philadelphia — scene of past post-victory mass gatherings — are being advised to make sure their grates are down Sunday night and that anything outside, such as trash cans and flower pots, are brought inside,” the report said.
, Capt. Anthony Luca, commander to the 15th Police District, is asking bars to sell alcohol in plastic cups only and to refrain from selling takeout bottles. ‘The police will be enforcing open container laws,’ Luca said.
“No parking signs will be posted in the area effective from 3 p.m. Sunday through 3 a.m. Monday. Similar measures will be in place at the Sports Complex in South Philadelphia and on Broad Street, including the deployment of mounted police.”
Eagles fans have a reputation for being rowdy so it’s no surprise that the Police department is being extra cautious. Let’s hope things don’t get too out of hand if the Eagles do indeed win on Sunday.
