Twitter stunned at why Empire State Building would be green following Eagles’ 31-7 win over 49ers

One modern practice is for buildings to light up in team colors following a big win from one of their college or pro sports teams.

Of course, when a building is lighting up in the colors of a rival, it generates plenty of discussion.

Such was the case when the Empire State Building — one of the prime symbols of New York City — on Sunday night was adorned in green following the Philadelphia Eagles’ 31-7 win over the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC Championship Game at Lincoln Financial Field. It wasn’t even like there was a mistake; the Empire State Building’s official Twitter account even emphasized that they were celebrating the big win for the Giants’ arch rivals.

Here are the best reactions from Twitter.
