PHILADELPHIA (CBS) - The postponement of Sunday’s Eagles game with the Vikings disappointed most fans but many also agreed with the decision.

A group of fans from Lancaster had tickets to the game. They were disappointed but making the best of it at a South Philly bar. One of them said they didn’t want to get stranded in the parking lot, “but it would be fun to sit there in 40 mile-per-hour wind in a snow storm watching football,” said the fan.  Another fan in the group was fine with the decision. “I would have liked to have seen the game. It would have been fun to watch the game in a blizzard but the decision certainly makes sense to me,” said the fan.

Stacy and Adrian Carter of Baltimore were in town visiting family and were at Chickie’s and Pete’s in South Philadelphia. Stacy is an Eagles fan while Adrian is a Ravens fan. Stacy was disappointed the game was postponed because he wanted his wife to experience Eagles fans. “I came all the way from Baltimore to see the game here so I’m quite upset, said Stacy Carter. When asked how their love of different teams affected their marriage Adrian said, “We celebrate the fact that we both love birds. So that’s how we find the good in everything.”

Mark Barbie of South Philadelphia was also disappointed but understood the decision. His father-in-law wasn’t as understanding. “I was at home and called my father-in-law to let him know that they were not going to be playing. He was disappointed because he says they’ve played in the snow before,” said Barbie.

Many fans are also looking forward to watching a rare Tuesday night football game. Barbie says he is thinking about throwing an Eagles watch party at his house.
