Empire State Constructing curiously joins in on Philadelphia’s celebration of Eagles’ NFC championship

Philadelphia is predictably enthusiastic concerning the Eagles’ NFC championship win over the San Francisco 49ers.

In much less anticipated information, so, apparently, is the Empire State Constructing. The New York Metropolis skyline icon lit up in inexperienced and white in celebration of the rival metropolis’s sports activities success Sunday evening.

Significantly. It tweeted the picture from the constructing’s official account accompanied by a cheer of “Fly Eagles Fly!”

So did any individual lose a guess?

No, it seems that the constructing representing metropolis that hosts the Giants and notoriously shares no love for Philadelphia sports activities simply deliberate poorly. The constructing’s web page’s “tower lights” page explains that the plan for Sunday all alongside was to light up the tower with the colours of each convention championship winners from Sunday’s NFL video games. Even when these colours are inexperienced and white.

Anyone clearly declined to vet this concept.

Eagles followers, in the meantime, had been largely too busy to note on Sunday. They had been occupied with doing, nicely — what they do.

This entails:

Climbing poles:

Climbing extra poles:

Climbing poles whereas chugging beer:

Blow-up dolls and green-man shenanigans:

Then there are these of us, who hopefully prevented severe damage:

Alas, not all poles had been in a position to be climbed. Sure, greased poles after Philadelphia sports activities wins is an actual factor.

However Eagles in giant seemed to be benefiting from Sunday’s victory on the Philadelphia streets.

Simply wait til they see what the Empire State constructing did.
