You think your Super Bowl party was wild? Try literally making a roof break down.
A collapsed awning at Philadelphia’s Ritz-Carlton was least among the mayhem unleashed upon the city as Eagles fans celebrated their team’s stunning 41-33 victory against the New England Patriots at Sunday night’s Super Bowl LII.
Thousands reveled in the Eagles’ first Super Bowl win by destroying public property. The Ritz-Carlon awning collapsed after repeatedly being used as a make-shift trampoline by fans.
Before the Ritz Carlton awning collapsed there was this near death experience by a drunk Eagles fan. He’ll be thanking his friends when he recovers from his hangover. pic.twitter.com/p39Uluiqh0

Others channeled their inner aggression with windows, street signs, and public plant pots.
Groups of energized fans came together to flip over cars.

Police had braced for the festivities in anticipation of disorderly conduct.
Before the festivities began, police greased poles throughout the city–but that didn’t stop Eagles fans from climbing every pole or high surface they could find.
City workers in Philadelphia greased many of the city’s light poles to prevent Eagles fans from climbing them after the NFC Championship game. It looks like these happy fans were up for the challenge. https://t.co/Jqou2RxP08 pic.twitter.com/r0E1vzQ0CY

Some even climbed atop the fence at the City Center.
One fan took things to the extreme, eating horse excrement live on camera.

Amid all the chaos, only three people were arrested, according to ABC 6.
Sunday night’s Super Bowl was a huge victory for the Eagles, who were considered the match-up’s underdogs.
Did Eagles fans go too far in their post-game jubilee?
Imagine if they had lost.
