The best of the best from the first Super Bowl parade in Eagles history

Philadelphia needs to build Jason Kelce a statue immediately.

And with the Mummers suit.

Kelce’s epic profanity-filled underdogs rant highlighted the first Eagles Super Bowl parade in franchise history, a surreal day that brought out a legion of fans out to witness it. People hung from trees, some watched from their balconies and the players interacted with the fans.

Here’s Kelce’s speech if you haven’t seen it already.

Kelce might challenge Carson Wentz for the top-selling jersey honor in Philadelphia very soon. He was well prepared for that speech, chugging beers long before he gave it.

No one likes us and we don’t care!

Prior to the speeches, the Eagles players, coaching staff and their families celebrated atop 24 green double-decker buses. The Super Bowl trophy was proudly held high for everyone to see. Confetti was also shot into the crowd. The parade began at Broad Street and Pattison Avenue and went up Broad to City Hall before making its way to the Philadelphia Museum of Art, where the famous “Rocky” staircase resides.

Bud Light announced Monday that they would give away free beer along the five-mile parade route. There’s no official total of how many of those Kelce gulped down. The words Philly Philly and Dilly Dilly were spelled out in the sky.

The people were also tossing beers to the players and Doug Pederson’s one-handed snag was the most impressive.

What an amazing day and I can’t wait to do it again next year!

It’s going to be the new norm.
