The Philadelphia Police Department, anticipating raucous fans, greased metal poles in the city with tubs of shortening, WPVI reported.

It didn’t matter. Once the Eagles’ 38-7 victory against the Minnesota Vikings in Sunday’s NFC Championship game was official, fans took the streets to yell, honk horns, stand on cars -- and yes, climb up metal poles.

Video captured one fan climbing a pole in Center City, WPVI reported.

Before the game, the police had some fun with the situation.

They tweeted, "Now comes the time in the night where we must warn everyone about the dangers of saturated fats. Cheer for #Foles! Jeers for #Poles!”

The Eagles will face the defending Super Bowl champion New England Patriots on Feb. 4 in Super Bowl LII in Minneapolis. They met in Super Bowl XXXIX, when the Patriots won 24-21 in Jacksonville, Florida.

Phillip Snider, the husband at the center of the investigation, told investigators in Benton County, Tennessee that he dumped his wife’s body in the Tennessee River, according to WBBJ.

Roberta Snider’s body has not been recovered.

Officers said Brendan Dowling, 41, of Kennesaw, was walking on the trails behind Boling Park in Canton when he called 911 about 6:30 p.m. Sunday and said he was lost on Rampley Trail. He told authorities that his cellphone battery was dying, and it died during the call, police spokesman Pacer Cordry said.

Officers launched a search for Dowling and found his vehicle in Boling Park a short time later. At that point, Canton police as well as Cherokee fire and sheriff’s officials launched a wider search using ATVs and a police helicopter.

Dowling was found on a wooded trail about 4:30 a.m. wearing a T-shirt and shorts, Cordry said. He was evaluated by search and rescue personnel and later reunited with family.

"He's an avid runner according to his family, so he's used to running in the woods and trails like this, but obviously he got turned around tonight," Cordry said.

Authorities are still not sure how he got lost.

“We’re still waiting on those details,” Cordry said. “I believe he just entered into the trail and it got dark really quick on him. It’s easy to get turned around in these wooded areas out here.”
