Jacob Frey seems like a nice guy.
The mayor or Minneapolis speaks eloquently and beautifully about the city hosting Super Bowl LII between the Eagles and Patriots.
In a video posted Tuesday by The Monday Morning Quarterback Twitter account, Frey introduces Minneapolis to all visitors coming for Sunday's big game.
"We've got it all here in Minneapolis," Frey said. "We've got the lakes that encircle our city, the Mississippi River runs right down the center of it. And by the way, when you're at the Mississippi River, make sure to check out the Stone Arch Bridge — it's absolutely miraculous."
Warm and hospitable, right?
Heck, the guy even makes the bitter days of winter sound somewhat appealing.
Then he gives a big welcome to both teams.
Well, one team at least …
"For the Eagles fans, don't worry, we're going to be greasing all the lampposts so you feel right at home," Frey said. "So come on out, have a great time and make sure you come back to visit us again."
But even Frey couldn't buy the end of his own message.
That was made clear right here ...

The Vikings' 38-7 NFC Championship Game loss to the Eagles may have had something to do with this. Not sure, though.
But Frey and Minneapolis are obviously having some fun with the whole week.
Eagles fans are hoping their fun comes all the way back to Broad Street.
