12:35 am
officers here you can see they are actually in this area right now guarding the area. here in south philadelphia they're haven't been any major issues but i did hear from the officers here on scene there have been two phone poles -- in center near broad and arch. two phone poles have fallen by some of the fans there has been one person seriously injured in one of those falls. sad news to report tonight. here in south philly, it's just a party. everyone is still gathered as you can notice over the past few life shots we've had there are fewer people. we are now pushing 1:00 o'clock in the morning here in south philly there have not been any major incidents here in this area, but once again, two phone poles falls confirmed by the philadelphia police toppled. one person seriously injured we're told. here in south philly, lots of bring drinking much lots of singing.
12:36 am
lots of partying but no major issues to report. there are folks of course who have fireworks out. who are drinking but police not making any arrests in this immediate vicinity. this is what it's all about right here. the vince lombardi trophy coming to philadelphia. everyone is excited. this is what this is about. about that fun, about that excitement. the philadelphia eagles are the super bowl lii champions and everyone here at least in south philadelphia is having a good time but once again that information we've confirmed with philadelphia police, two poles toppled in center city and one person injured. so some issues going non center city but here in south philadelphia, really just a party atmosphere right now, guys. i can tell i was lot of fun but the crowds are getting smaller. ukee and jess here in south philadelphia, that's the latest. it is getting quieter. back to you guys there in the studio. >> we can hully see greg now.
12:37 am
>> i know we can. that's good thing. >> thank you greg. we knew there were going to be issues right now it sounds like they're smaller issues. >> yeah. >> we'll get more updates on the injured people as we can. let's go now to the phones. we've got bill and cole fitzgerald our friends from south jersey. cole, of course, our alex cancer hero who got surprised with tickets. >> yes, did he. >> gentlemen, how was it? tell us how it was. hey, cole. >> talk loud buddy. >> it was very emotional. very overwhelming. it was very crazy. everybody went. everybody went nuts. cole long-time wish for the eagles to win the super bowl every year at alex's lemonade stand lemon ball finally came true. >> cole, i've seen that wish i think every year for the last four years. you also spent time with that -- with that team, you work as their equipment manager for one game. what do you think makes this team so special?
12:38 am
>> speak louder. >> how nice the players are. how, like, the chemistry and how they do work on and off the field. it's pretty special. now we're champions. >> great people. there was no controversy. they came together as a team. overcame adversity. true philadelphia spirit true and true. we're bringing it home. >> bringing it home. cole s your dad there? is bill there? >> yeah, this is his dad. i just don't have much of a voice left. [ laughter ] >> for obvious reasons. we're the 12th man and then some. >> that's awesome. you guys. fitzgeralds you come home tomorrow? >> bill and cole are you still with jus. >> we may have lost them on the phone. >> that was them on the flight here and again just to recap, you saw cole here. he was the equipment manager for one of the games. he really has such a heart for
12:39 am
football. >> no question. >> really his passion. and so it was great to see him get to see that come to fruiti fruition. >> we watched him grow up and we're watching these guys go down the pole. they're in mayfair. >> yeah. >> that's -- they put motor oil on the poles this year. >> didn't work. >> didn't look like it worked too well. there's joe. hey, joe? i see crowds are -- >> reporter: hey guys. >> little light now. >> reporter: i can hear you. so we just saw our first pair of pole climbers over on a cross walk sign in fact, they made it practically to the top and came down on their own. that's the first that's happened here. now when we saw you last, police said they were going to be giving the signal to go ahead and move this crowd out of here. they've been going strong since the clock wound down to zero and of course the eagles taking the title champions in the super bowl. still feels so surreal to be
12:40 am
saying that. but i got to tell you, aside from that pole climb that something they do in philadelphia, this has been peaceful there. have been no incidents. i spoke to the captain win the last ten minutes. and people are having a good time. it is a celebration for sure. now, when we spoke last there was a concentration of people right in this area. that has kind of died down. you know, people just leaving in groups of three, four, five he heading east so that would be in the direction behind the camera. east down cottman, and it was interesting what the captain told me and i had a very loud crowd the last time i was talking with you, but essentially, there are other parties and scenes erupting across the city of philadelphia and they figured it would be while they have a good handle on this and, you know, it's been more than three hours out here or just about three hours that
12:41 am
it would be time to call it an evening. what do we have here? >> people are rushing to the center of the gathering which is basically the most intense area for all of this. i'm trying to make out what's going on. just stay with me here. yeah f my vantage point it's not clear what's going on. but whatever it is, it has the crowd's attention. because people have essentially stopped talking in the middle of the crowd to figure out what's going on. i'm not sure -- i'm not sure what my distance s it's a pole climber. let's see, he's down. all of this intersection, ukee and jess, police have eyes. they are on the high grounds on tops of buildings, in front of
12:42 am
storefronts, plane clothes and the bike unit. when we were here two weeks ago, they broke this party down in 11 minutes. members of the philadelphia bike unit essentially started fencing off frankford avenue both north and south and cottman east and west and sent them east down toward udrick street. i'm told that's going to be the same plan of exit for this par party, and that should be happening in the next five to ten minutes. any way, so it's calm. people seem to be focused in again on the center of the cro crowd. three people climb poles what is exactly going on other than possibly that. guys? >> i'm kind of looking at the crowd, joe. i don't know if you can probably see, too, i don't think it's too serious because a lot of the authorities are basically their
12:43 am
body language just talking and waiting walking around. >> and watching. >> watching. hopefully it doesn't appear to be too serious. some of philly's finest right there doing their thing. it won't be long now. it won't be long. >> you know what's been interesting -- >> reporter: as you pointed out, guys, people certainly having a great time. under scoring that the last time we were here, it went off smoothly. there were zero incidents. in fact, my recollection there were a total of four incidents citywide over a span of 48 hou hours. this is -- this is a party unlike anything perhaps we've seen. yes the phillies have gone to the world series. but the super bowl title in this city is amazing. there's a guy climbing a pole over there. i'm trying to make out. he's on top of the street sign as you can see. >> it looks like -- >> police told me earlier in the day they used is called hydraulic or gear oil to greece
12:44 am
these poles. that's, you know, an audible from the crisco they used two weeks ago. i was told that it didn't hold up. now, it seems that the gear oil is not holding up either though what did we have an inch of rain? so that may have played a factor. >> yeah. it may stain your clothes a little bit. >> just a bit. just a bit. once again the pole climbing -- pole climbing is symbolic of reaching the summit and shouting at the top of your lungs in this case smoking at the top of your lungs. my goodness, he is smoking. >> he is doing many things all at once. >> all right. well, we'll see how this fan fares right there literally at cottman and frankford. >> exactly. >> once again the authorities are on the scene. so they are watching this very very carefully. so far so good.
12:45 am
>> on the right side of your screen the bigger picture you are i believe are looking at the center city camera that we have above broad street there, and still a giant crowd. a little thinner. you can tell it's getting later. but still a large crowd out there tonight, um, we're working to get updates and confirmations on some reports. did you see, you know n ritz carlton is right there where that crowd would be and we saw earlier people jumping off that >> did you hear something about the awning? >> we're told that that awning fell down. >> oh my. >> unclear if anyone was injur injured. but we do know that piece of structure was broken. >> that will happen when you have four or five people on top of that thing. >> right. >> oh, my. >> little things like that are definitely happening. so be careful out there, and, you know, as police have said many times, listen, the bulk of people are peaceful and having great time. it's these pocks of people that are causing problems. >> no doubt. >> and wreaking havoc like knocking down this awning at the
12:46 am
hotel. >> 10 seconds you saw shadow people walking in south philadelphia. folks are starting to dissipate now and go home and a lot of people were walking casual toll celebrate. just about over for now. >> right. >> in certain parts. >> it doesn't have to end permanently. >> right. >> it's just -- >> you don't have to go but you can't stay here. >> that's what mayor nutter used to always say. >> exactly. >> exactly. >> yeah. >> but what they'll start to do is probably start to drive through police vehicles and kind of, you know, gently remind the crowd it's time to break it up. >> it is sunday night. 12:46am. the morning after the philadelphia eagles won the super bowl championship over the new england patriots. the tenth time the patriots organization has gone there. third time for us. we've come up empty handed until now. >> not any more. >> not any more. >> that's a great thing. >> what a night this has been. one that philadelphia is going to remember for a very long time. it will go down in sports lure.
12:47 am
the year of the underdog. >> still hugs. hugs and high fives. >> i don't know if you saw the bit that was floating around social media this weekend the year of the dog. >> no question. it is. >> it is. >> it truly is. >> they were loving that and they loved maybe it was all in the signs, you know, the year of the dog. >> so many signs. >> i think it was lucky number nine. >> and the late jerome brown was 52 eagles made -- he would have been 52. eagles made super bowl lii and today was jerome's birthday as it was carly's graham's daughter birthday. >> you see they're doing what i was telling you about. >> here we go. >> going down broad street with the police vehicles witness lights on. this is their first attempt to kind of break it up. >> right. >> and hopefully, you know, the bulk of people will get message it's probably time to winder down for the evening. >> you see the people on your left doing just that. >> don't worry, they'll reconvene later this week for a parade.
12:48 am
if we'll get together again no doubt. >> this is how philadelphia police are going to start to break the crowd of. because, again, what they want is just maintain control over the situation. they don't want to get out of control which by all accounts it has not -- on the whole it has been very controlled tonight. as people celebrate this victo victory. >> i think it's been handled very well tonight. thus far. reports that we have. we have reporters all over the area. cameras all over the area. we've seen very little. we have some minor issues to deal with but on the whole, it's ban great night for eagles nation, for the tri-state area. >> that's absolutely right. so again you are looking right there on the right side down broad in center city. they're just starting to break up that crowd there. then on your left, i believe -- >> the bike cops are out. >> you're looking i mayfair you see the bike cops kind of doing the same thing. >> right. >> which is just starting to break everybody up and kind of

12:50 am
broadcasters for the network that televised the game tonight al michaels said he's going to even have fly in to see it. >> yeah. >> he knows how long we have suffered. >> i think people do want to see it. i bumped into similar situation in minneapolis. yeah we're probably coming to philly if there's a parade. we want to see that in person. >> no doubt. >> philly police have a fair amount of overtime in their future, as they prepare for what is come this week as they bring the vince lombardi trophy back to philadelphia, back to the delaware river valley and all the eagles fans who are still mighty happy. >> mighty pleased. >> they've leaving and going home to their apartments to their homes. >> i think authorities will be pleased with that as well. >> yes, indeed. yes indeed. we hope you've had great time. we certainly have and so have those folks you're looking at right now live in center city. wow! this is something they'll talk about for ages. they'll talk about it tonight. talk about with their friends. do the mummers strut while they're talking about it.
12:51 am

12:52 am
fireworks. >> that happened earlier. >> yeah n happened earlier tonight. >> you are looking live at the left of your screen in the smaller bock. this is a sampling of what has gone on in our city tonight. i'm sure probably in your neighborhood in the suburbs, in the city in west philly, north philly, the great northeast, i'm sure there's some celebrations out there as well and well deserved. we wait add long time for this family and we finally have it >> philadelphia philadelphia pace yours. >> we've got to get through their return, the parade through all of us. as don bell and pat gallen report to do us the eagles while this is going on life in philly right here and you're looking at what's happening in downtown philadelphia the eagles are still in minneapolis tonight. they're going to all get together and party at the mall of america. they actually had a party there two nights ago. they're returning to that spot. and then they will get on flight tomorrow and bring that trophy
12:53 am
home. >> while have the opportunity you returned yesterday from minneapolis, kudos to you don, pat, meisha our crews behind the scenes for bringing at mott fears. >> thank you. >> wonderful job. >> we had a great team there. >> who was committed to making sure everybody could be there if they couldn't travel. hats off to our entire crew that was on the ground there they work very hard. it was little chillily. >> yes, it was. >> but like i told you, by thursday when the eagles fans started arriving there, they were pumped, you just started to get this feeling i think to be fair the national media just was not getting a hold of. >> they weren't. not at all. >> there was just a feeling that this was their year. >> i watched from the beginning of the play off season the national media they couldn't grasp it. they were doing the bev you can but you have to be here. >> right. >> you have to know what this team is all about. i think don and pat would agree. let's go back to them in
12:54 am
minneapolis in u.s. bank stadi stadium. gentlemen. >> guys, it sounds so corny to say but we really did get a feel for what this team is and what they have been spending so much -- you spend so much time with them. >> sure. >> we've been covering these guys this current group this august or before training camp in july. >> sure. >> you start to get a rhythm. you start to get a flow or what they are. >> they're a family. they use that word over and over again. doug pederson said it in the locker room with that amazing speech that we had live on cbs3. family and that's what brandon graham talked about, so that family atmosphere has led to this. now, i got a chance to catch up with lane johnson, talk about a familiar much those five guys across the front. >> yeah. >> they were outstanding. >> great performance from you guys and of course nick. got a little dicey at the end. what does it mean for you guys as team to finish the way did you? >> the fun nest team i've ever been on with all the injuries.
12:55 am
a lot of it has to do with the friendships that we have, the bonds we have off the field. get in the game, there's no egos involved it's all brotherhood. >> when you were hit with injuries the way you were hit with them this year, is there ever a time you step back and say, you know what, maybe this isn't our year because of the accumulation of them? >> so hard to be positive. in situations like you saw with green bay. but i feel like with the help of the front office with what we had i knew we were going that be in a good situation. >> talk bout performance of nick foles. >> speaks for itself. the biggest stage, the biggest game possible he goes out and dropping dimes. staying poised. that's the way it's been throughout the playoffs. >> how about spreading the wealth, the run game was on. corey clement catching passes out back field. it's just a full team effort on offense.
12:56 am
>> hard to do. >> it sounds cliche this is the best team i've ever been a part of. it doesn't matter who make makee plays. we got guys who are willing to make them. >> give philly a message. >> get ready for this parade because it will be something you'll never forget. >> nick foles had an outstanding game dropping dimes. >> dropping dimes as they say. >> but a lot of the success that he had was because of that offensive line. lane johnson had an outstanding game. a lot of people don't look at what the guards do because you always focused on the receivers and the backs. brandon brooks was an all pro and deservedly so. he had an mazing go. you go back and watch that game take a look what the offensive line did because they were outstanding from start to finish. >> last night, eagles offensive line was given an award as a group as being the best offensive line in football, and you mentioned it. today, they played that way. what a team win. >> unbelievable. >> epic day and i started the day off by saying this in our
12:57 am
pre-game show. what a time to be a life. >> feels good, doesn't it. >> feels so good. back to you guys in the studio. >> i'm sad to see it end to tell you the truth. this has been so much fun. >> don't worry. we got a little more. >> yeah, we do. gentlemen, thank you very much. >> let's go to joe holden in mayfair now. joe, we understand that bike cops are clearing that area out. >> reporter: they've done a heck of a job here. took them all of about ten minutes to sweep through the entire intersection and move the party goers on. congratulations. any way, so you see down beyond me is this is east on cottman. that is where they moved the crowd, and police will follow along with them. cottman is closed i think beyond urdrick the next light after that. i can hear distant chants of
12:58 am
e-a-g-l-e-s. still trying to tend to this area. i check in with the captain really quickly before we got live here, and still saying there were no incidents. we saw the pole climbers, and that was it. you know, they've gotten this down to a science. all of the perimeter here that is blocked by trash trucks and there were no bottles allowed in businesses were asked to serve only solo cups and cans. so it look likes for the most part things were absolutely according to plan. let's go this way and take you into the intersection. nothing but members of the philadelphia police department an whole lot of trash. you can see through the streets litter the all about this intersection here, and it is just you get the scent of beer through the intersection right now as this is what's left of what has been an amazing historic and memorable celebration here in mayfair.
12:59 am
ukee and jess, the estimates were 30,000 people may have come out to this. the rain really put that number back down considerably. but taking a things into consideration, the rain let up just as that clock wound down and the game ended, so people got to have their party, they got to see what was an amazing nail biter of a game. we've been talking about the good times we've been having all night out here but they've just watched that game haven't taken into account everything. the story line behind the season, and what has been a remarkable evening to celebrate with the folks from northeast philadelphia and they come from all points here. this is a big celebration but it has right off the bat from what i'm being told it has ended peacefully and now the sanitation department and philadelphia streets department will come in here in earnest we saw them do it two weeks ago and have this place back to normal i
1:00 am
would say win about an hour. we just saw it when the nfc championship game was won. that is the latest reporting live in mayfair, i'll joe holden cbs3 "eyewitness news". >> joe, real quick before you go. i know you're a local guy like many of us are here local people when it comes to championships and parades and things of that sort. you were in pittsburgh i believe before you came home. were you in pittsburgh for any of the celebrations up there and if so can you compare the two? >> reporter: you know, ukee, when you ask about, you know, something like that, it was neat to see how they celebrated out there. but i think you pulled my heart strings. this is home for me, and i just -- i couldn't believe it. a tear rolled out of my eye when the game was over, and i'm trying to be professional as much as possible but as a boy from upper darby to be able to
1:01 am
cover this and talk about a super bowl win there's nothing more humbling and more honorable than to talk about all of this. >> we have some stragglers here. revelers still making their way through the intersection. >> i'm with you, my friend. i'm definitely with you. i'm west philly and dover, delaware. i know what you're going through. hey, man, feel free. let that tear drop. this is -- you won't forget this. i know i won't. no doubt about i thank you buddy. >> let's go to greg argos now in south philadelphia. greg, how is the crowd there? >> reporter: well, i have about 75 of them right here. >> they just gathered with me. realized we were about to go live. if we pan off to the right here you can see it really has dwindled down. philadelphia police and the philadelphia fire department they've actually drove one or two of their vehicles down at south broad. we're at south...
1:02 am
>> looks like we're having technical difficulty with greg. most folks are starting to make with way home. some are still standing around enjoying the moment. time is winding down. 1:02 in the morning and some folks are going home but here's life picture once again downtown a lot of folks are still in the center city area. >> i feel like the game was over just after 10:00 o'clock or so. so 11, 12, 1:00 we're into hour two or three at this point of the celebrations throughout the city of philadelphia. what you're looking at right now is downtown center city. where the crowd is still -- they're still a little -- nice little pack there. >> yes. >> philadelphia police drove down the middle of broad and kind of -- with their vehicles with the lights on to kind of start to remind people encourage people that maybe it was time to wrap it up for the evening. as they did, up where joe holden was in mayfair they did that with the bike cops. >> right. >> so they're just going along their way and we're continuing to get reports of kind of how
1:03 am
the evening is going. we did hear about some damage and destruction at the ritz carlton hotel. but other than that, right there in that area that's what our roars have been able to tell glues that looks like a tight shot right that. i don't know whoever is on camera if we can pull out little bit that is a tight shot. looks like a lot of people are still there. folks are starting to go back to their apartments, their homes, back to where they were as the night grows even later. here's a good shot here of the authorities downtown and in the area making sure things stay calm. keep the peace and they look like they're in riot gear. that's not even close to happening. but it's a precaution. >> right. >> philadelphia police have had several goes at these very large crowds in terms of all of these events that we've had in the past couple of years here in philadelphia. if right. >> and they've learned they told us a lot from the crowds at the dnc, the crowds with the pope, the crowds at the draft all these big events we've hosted in
1:04 am
the city. they're ready to deal with the large crowds and they have a good plan in place and certainly by the looks of this a lot of officers on the streets. >> you can see some of the officers there hugging as well giving high fives and they're part of this as well but they have a job to do and they will do that job. but they're happy just like everyone else. the men and women of the police department, the fire department, everyone, outside tonight enjoying the moment. philadelphia eagles super bowl champions. wow! can't say it enough. >> it sounds so good. >> um-hmm. >> rolling right off the tongue. also you're just glad for everybody that it's not absolutely frigid outside it's cold but not like, you know, face burning cold. so it's nice that people could be outside and certainly for people who are going to clean -- the sanitation workers shout out to them who are now going to clean the streets of philadelphia. the officers people like that working to night out there. to get the city all prepped up for tomorrow. >> all prepped up. >> and the coming parade.
1:05 am
>> oh, man. can't wait. >> probably early to midweek. we can expect that. the city will certainly give us more information and we'll pass it on to you as we get it. >> and before we get to that's correct let's take another look. take a look back. an amazing and of course memorable night. >> let's do it >> e-a-g-l-e-s. >> we did it. the eagles, ladies and gentlemen, super bowl champions. >> we wouldn't! >> what did you think of that game buddy. >> it was amazing. >> everyone is celebrating tonight. a lot of excitement right now. this is what we've been waiting for. and guess what, everyone is going to take the streets because philadelphia is represented tonight. >> it's so fun we're obviously taking to all different parts of the city. >> broad and walnut, chestnut, all the way down south broad
