The Philadelphia police actually spent all day Wednesday lubricating light poles and trees so that no one would climb them if the Phillies beat the Dodgers that night in Game 5 of the NLCS. So what did smart and resourceful Philadelphians do when their team won to clinch a trip to the World Series? Climbed on top of taxis, of course.
One problem: Taxis eventually move. As this beer-toting genius discovered, and we see via split screen on live TV. Oh man, that was a rough landing, as we see in the video. I’m not sure he’s gonna live. Poor, stupid Phillies fan.
Video following the jump, plus more celebration antics.
THE 700 LEVEL, where I found this video, via DEADSPIN (check out the kid enjoying his first wilding), really thinks that Vaseline missed a great promotional opportunity by not sponsoring the Philadelphia pole greasing. And I have to agree.
Meanwhile, a fan climbed a tree somewhere downtown, and was promptly shot several times with a roman candle, as seen below. Video here.
Another great video here of a fan on top of a traffic light being pelted with cups of beer. And look, here’s Sarge enjoying the victory with a National League Champions hat. Garry Matthews, folks.
