It's always good to be proactive. 

Philadelphia sports fans are passionate, and they are pretty excited about their Eagles playing in the NFC Championship on Sunday. But they are known to be a little too rowdy after a big win.

That's why Philadelphia police officers were out covering city light posts with Crisco before the big game against the Minnesota Vikings.

Why are they doing this?

Because after the Phillies won the World Series in 2008, riots broke out and people climbed up on the light posts and destroyed cars, street signs and just about anything they saw...out of joy, of course.

The Crisco may help, but Eagles fans will likely get creative win or lose.
