Last Sunday’s Super Bowl game was nothing short of magical. The celebration that followed at City Hall will never be matched. The Eagles won their first NFL title in 57 years, and Philadelphians threw one of the craziest parties in modern American history. Released to the past are the bruised egos, the chipped shoulders, the bad “attytoods,” and the decades of miserable letdowns. We are now all champions beaming with genuine brotherly love thanks to the Philadelphia Eagles, gushing hyperbole intended.
The following photos were taken of people in the crowd on Broad Street down in South Philly during today’s Super Bowl parade. I have never seen so many happy people, and so much unified civic pride, in one place. I dare say that today was the day that the city of Philadelphia truly fell in love with itself again.
