It finally happened. The Philadelphia Eagles are Super Bowl champions for the first time in franchise history after more than 50 years. The entire city of Philadelphia joined in for the celebration, including the Phillies.

Leiter has been a fan his entire life, but the fact that other players can join in on the celebration despite not growing up as fans shows the ties they all feel to the city.
To no one’s surprise, plenty of Eagles fans turned to the streets to the celebrate the victory. The Phillie Phanatic may not have been the most excessive person out there, but he was one of them.
The Eagles will have their Super Bowl parade Thursday in Philadelphia, starting on Broad Street before heading up to the Art Museum. In 2008, about a million people showed up for the Phillies’ World Series parade. Many more than that will be in town for the Eagles’ parade.
I’m sure these players want to bring the next championship to Philadelphia; can they do it before making Philadelphians wait another 10 years?
