The Philadelphia Phillies won the NLCS against the San Diego Padres on Sunday night and they are going to the World Series in a few days. The City of Brotherly Love may be currently celebrating, but some fans are taking the extra mile.
As soon as the celebration started on South Broad Street, multiple Philadelphia Phillies fans were climbing the street poles and being kind of obnoxious. Twitter had a field day with them.
This past weekend, Philadelphia city officials ordered to have the light poles greased in case of out-of-hand behavior from the celebrations of the fans in the streets. Apparently, it was a bust.
Poles along South Broad Street were greased in 2009 during the Phillies’ last World Series appearance. The move is more recently of officials slathering poles with Crisco during the Philadelphia Eagles Super Bowl run in their 2017 season.
The fans were not exactly deterred by this. As a matter of fact, some saw it as a challenge.
But congratulations to the Philadelphia Phillies on winning the NLCS to enter the World Series! Win or lose, the Philly fanbase’s reaction to the series is something to monitor.
