After the Eagles beat the Patriots 41-33 in Super Bowl LII, things happened in Philadelphia that you might have expected.

Fans climbed light poles, pulled down a traffic light, looted a Wawa* and made an awning collapse at the Ritz-Carlton hotel.

*It’s basically a poor man’s version of a QuikTrip.

That kind of thing was, unfortunately, expected to happen.

But there were some cool scenes as well. For example, fans helped police push potted trees back into place and students at the Merriam Theater of the Arts broke out horns and played the Eagles fight song from five stories above the party on the street.

Another great moment: police officer Mark Lapenta celebrating with fans on the street. Take a look:

Thousands of Philadelphia Eagles fans took to the streets of Philadelphia to celebrate their Super Bowl victory over the New England Patriots on Sunday, February 4, 2018. There was a lot of climbing going on: some scaled the gates of Philadelphia
