We're going to need a few more dog masks, folks. A very happy Monday it is as the city celebrates the Eagles heading to the Super Bowl, underdogs once again. Philly will be a lot kinder today, if maybe a bit bleary-eyed. If you turned in after the buzzer, don't worry: plenty of your neighbors climbed greased light poles in your stead.

It wasn't a dream: the Eagles pummeled the Vikings 38-7 last night and the Philadelphia region erupted in celebration knowing the Birds are headed to the Super Bowl. They'll face Tom Brady's New England Patriots, in a repeat match up from the last time Philly made the big game in 2005.

So, what does this mean for you? Well, immediately, not much — unless you work for the federal government, in which case you might start losing pay.
Most federal departments will be closed, but many government services haven't made clear how they'll be affected. One thing was certain this weekend: tourists were sad to find both the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall were closed.
We want to see what our community looks like through your eyes. Show us the park that your family walks through every weekend with the dog, the block party in your neighborhood or the historic stretch you see every morning on your commute to work.
