"Against The Odds" on Morning Energy

Philadelphia police have charged a city man with assaulting an Associated Press photographer during street celebrations after the Eagles won the Super Bowl. Given the crowds, CNN asked him how long it took to get there.

Numerous fans from Northeastern Pennsylvania were among the sea of green and white that was expected to total 2 million.

"The fan was exuberant and excited and he pulled the chair out", she said.

Both said they thought they would never see this day, but it was special to share it together.

Practically the entire city will be closed for business for Thursday's celebrations, including all museums, the Philadelphia Zoo and city courts. The parade ends at the museum, famous for the steps that Rocky climbed in the greatest training montage of all time. Parking lots at suburban New Jersey rail stations were filled and closed hours before the 11 a.m. start of the parade.

There will be long lines and insane crowds in the Philadelphia area at all the local sports apparel stores, everyone trying to get their hands on Eagles Super Bowl merchandise for the first time. The championship was the Eagles first since 1960.

There is a wide selection of shirts, hats and more.

The seating capacity at US Bank Stadium is a little lower after Super Bowl LII. But Thursday morning brought the main event: The Eagles Parade. From left are team owner Jeffrey Lurie and quarterbacks Nick Foles and Carson Wentz. The team was winless in two previous Super Bowl appearances. The buses, which where part of an excursion run by JZ Tours, also picked up Eagles fans in Wilkes-Barre Township and Hazleton.

One nimble fan was even caught on camera dancing while hanging from a street sign pole. There, fans and coaches will give speeches and soak in the glory of their 41-33 victory over the New England Patriots on Sunday.
