Rough loss β€” thanks refs β€” but a great season (Instagram/@mischievousminis)

Philadelphia fans fill the streets to commiserate in solidarity 

QB Jalen Hurts broke records, but the Eagles were outplayed in the Super Bowl, losing to the Chiefs 38-35 after a late penalty ruined comeback chances.

  • Philadelphia fans still gathered on Broad Street for a subdued celebration of “not being Kansas City” and a great season for the Birds. There were drumlines and even fireworks, WHYY News reports.

Hurts took it in stride, saying “You either win or you learn.” If you’re struggling to find the same zen, Nick Kariuki got tips from the experts on how to recover.

Comcast blames Super Bowl outage on vandalism in Kensington

For a good part of the day on Sunday, Philadelphians in the River Wards could not get their last bit of Eagles fix.

  • Comcast’s Xfinity service went down early afternoon in the area around Fishtown, leading to major frustration as the outage disrupted watch parties and pregame fun. 

Service was finally restored about 20 minutes after kickoff. What happened? “Vandalism” in Kensington, a company rep told Billy Penn.
