Now what do we do?
Well, if you believe Doug Pederson, we get used to it.
The Eagles head coach has a message for long-suffering Philly fans. Get used to parades.
"This is the new norm," Pederson told his players, and in effect the fans as well.
We can't wait for next season.
But first, a few things about what happened yesterday.
How about a huge thumb's up for SEPTA, which took a lot of grief during the parade planning but delivered the goods - and hundreds of thousands of fans - to and from the city with hardly a hiccup. Well done, folks.
And to the fans. This one is simple. They are the best fans in the world, and proved it again yesterday.
Make sure you pick up a copy of our print edition today. It's another special collector's edition with a special section detailing the Eagles Super Bowl Championship Parade. It also has one more color centerspread saluting the City of Champions. Plus, it's at our regular daily price of $1.50, a bargain.
Finally, there is Jason Kelce. I love his passion. I love the underdog spirit. But truth be told, I could have lived without the profanity. I'm not a prude. I can cuss with the best of them. But there is a context and setting that needs to be taken into consideration.
We lament all the time how much coarser our society is becoming. I know I do. Now we know why. The crowd roared as Kelce dropped F-bombs. That tells you pretty much everything you need to know.
I still love Kelce. As much as anyone he embodies the underdog spirit that carried this team - and this city - to its first Super Bowl championship.
A day to remember? You bet.
