Philadelphia gears up to shut down for Eagles parade

Philadelphia gears up to shut down for Eagles parade”

Hundreds of thousands of fans of the Philadelphia Eagles on Thursday welcomed home their Super Bowl-winning team with a massive parade and celebrations that filled the city's streets.

Led by bikers, trucks and open-topped, double-decker buses carrying the players, the parade set off from the city's south side and was to make its way up Broad Street to the city centre, the cradle of U.S. independence.

Bud Light announced Monday that it would be giving away free brews along the five mile parade route, which is set to end on the Philadelphia Art Museum steps Sylvester Stallone famously climbed in the "Rocky" movies. As the ceremony closed the team and crowd sang "We Are the Champions" together.

Hilarious footage posted to Twitter by a Philadelphia Inquirer reporter shows two Eagles fans creating a makeshift beer dispensary - by pouring ale from a first-floor balcony straight into a passerby's mouth.

Tons of confetti will shower down on the players, including MVP quarterback Nick Foles and coach Doug Pederson, the heroes of the hour.

Emotional fans were seen cheering wildly, dancing and crying in livestream broadcasts of the event.

"We feel that everyone hates us, and we truly don't care", the late Kenny Hanson, a former president of the Sons of Ben, says in the video.
