Eagles Fans Still Climbing Up Poles Despite Being Greased By Police

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) -- The poles have been greased, but that still hasn't stopped fans from climbing them after the Eagles won their first ever Super Bowl.

Philadelphia police were greasing poles across the city on Sunday, hours before the Super Bowl victory.

However, police did not use Crisco this time around.

Prior to the NFC Championship game against the Minnesota Vikings, the "Crisco cops" greased up the poles, but people were still able to climb them.

During a press conference last week talking about Super Bowl security, Philadelphia Police Commissioner Richard Ross hinted they would be cooking up a different recipe to grease the poles.

"Now look, I can't tell you that there won't still be attempts, but I would suspect that some of them will be far more difficult than they were with the Crisco attempt," said Ross.

Social media went stirring after the announcement, as people were waxing about lubricant alternatives, baby oil, and even I Can't Believe It's Not Butter.

Police, though, would not confirm what they're putting on the poles.

"We don't need people Googling countermeasures," said police. "However, rest-assured that anything we put on poles will be biodegradable."

However, it did not stop Eagles fans from climbing poles following the game.
