PHILLY: Poles will be Crisco-free for the Super Bowl
If you'll remember, before the NFC Championship Game, police in Philadelphia smeared poles around town with Crisco, in hopes of preventing fans from climbing them and -- of course -- hurting themselves or others.
Unfortunately for the cops, putting Crisco on the poles didn’t really stop Philly fans from climbing, so the poles will be Crisco-free for the Super Bowl.
The police are warning fans to stay off the poles, but recognize that keeping every single fan off every single pole is just too big of a challenge. (Philadelphia Inquirer)
