Where’s yer loyalty?!? Empire State Building lights up for Super Bowl-bound Philadelphia Eagles – Boston Herald


First the Eagles beat the hometown Giants, and now this?

The Empire State Building stunningly lit up in green and white Sunday night for the locally despised Philadelphia Eagles after their win in the NFC Championship game.

“Fly Eagles Fly! We’re going Green and White in honor of the Eagles NFC Championship Victory,” tweeted an account for the historic Midtown Manhattan skyscraper.

The light scheme drew immediate howls from New Yorkers and sports commenters.

“Did y’all lose a bet,” ESPN reporter Mina Kimes asked.

“Wrong city,” another user commented.

The Twitter account for the Empire State Building — which once refused to light up in honor of Mother Theresa — doubled down on its questionable loyalties.

When controversial Barstool Sports founder Dave Portnoy criticized the lighting scheme, the building quote-tweeted him with a vid of Portnoy himself fake-crying and saying “Life is so unfair.”

The Eagles beat the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday to advance to the team’s 4th Super Bowl.

“Maybe they had that color ready for the Jets and were tired of waiting,” a Twitter user said of Sunday’s lights at the Empire State Building.

The Empire State Building did not immediately answer a request for comment.
