I am so disappointed in humanity right now.  Yesterday, the Philadelphia Eagles won the Super Bowl against the New England Patriots.  The score was 41-33.  This was historic because it is the first Super Bowl the Eagles have ever won!  How did the good citizens of Philadelphia, “The City of Brotherly Love”, choose to demonstrate their celebration and honor of the team?  They trashed the city!

Tens of thousands of people took to the streets brawling, flipping over cars, attempting to tear down traffic lights and lamp posts.  Cars and store fronts were damaged. Fires were lit.  People climbed and jumped off light poles.The Ritz Carlton awning collapsed with dozens of people on it.  Macy’s store windows were smashed and people went inside to take selfies with the mannequins.  A lot of people spent the evening listening to the police scanner as the town was under siege.

Despite all of this, the police say the celebrations have mostly been peaceful.  Only three people were ultimately arrested.  Doesn’t it make you wonder what the response would have been had the Eagles lost?  We will never know.
