Eagles Fan Who Ripped A Chair Out Of Stadium After Super Bowl As A Souvenir Has To Pay For It

One fan proves his Eagles fandom is truly deep-seated.

The Philadelphia Eagles' 41-33 win over the New England Patriots last Sunday, was a moment that Eagles fans naturally wanted to hold onto. For one man attending the Super Bowl, this meant taking a piece of the stadium home with him—his chair. 

Miraculously, not only was the man able to remove the seat (presumably with some force) and make it out of the U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis without being caught, but he also got the chair through airport security as a carry-on item, strapping the seat to his luggage—talk about flying by the seat of your pants.

However, a video of the man was shot at the airport and used to track him down. He has agreed to pay $125 to replace the stolen property, and gets to keep the chair.   

Seth Kaplan, Executive Producer at Fox 9, Minneapolis-St. Paul, reports:

Here's the video:

Fans also took photos of the empty space in the stadium where the seat was:

A lot of Twitterers thought he made out like a bandit: 

Impulsive fan or smart investor?

Some thought the cost of the Super Bowl ticket justified the theft (sort of):

Others saw it as a strictly criminal act:

And others just thought it was awesome:

So now what will he do with the chair? Sell it on eBay? Wrap it in plastic and store it in a vault somewhere? Mount it over his fireplace next to a deer's head? Or sit on it while he tells his grandchildren the story of Super Bowl LII and how the Eagles weren't the only one's that walked away with a win that day.
