You stay classy, Philadelphia

Eagles’s fans, copious amounts of alcohol, and record-setting amounts of snow.  There’s only one thing that could come of this combination: snowball wars.

The massacre of a pair of Niners’ fans in the Eagles’ 27-13 win was captured on video here at Deadspin. Philly wasn’t the only stadium with frozen projectile problems, as 29 ejections and one arrest were made at Giants’ Stadium during the Jets’ 10-7 loss to Atlanta. Just imagine the damage San Francisco had managed to escape the City of Brotherly Love with an upset.

Perhaps the most hilarious aspect of the snowy ambush was head coach Andy Reid’s comments after the game. “We’re a classy crew in Philadelphia here, and we need to save that for the parking lot,” said Reid.

Right, Andy, because nothing oozes class quite like mauling innocent fans trying to get to their warm cars with hunks of ice. It’s also totally classy to refrain from chucking bottles at people in the stadium so that you can put them under their tires in the lot. Yeah, there’s no way karma plays into who wins the Super Bowl.
