Democratic Mayor Jim Kenney had asked fans to celebrate with passion and pride after Sunday’s wild postgame celebration was marred by small pockets of ”knuckleheads” who resorted to violence and vandalism.
The biggest problem facing parade-goers Thursday afternoon was making the trip home on mass transit. One heavily used subway station was closed about an hour after the victory rally ended due to overcrowding.
The championship Philadelphia Eagles ended their raucous, emotional rally by giving props to their fans.
Super Bowl MVP Nick Foles and Carson Wentz thanked the roaring crowds from the ”Rocky” steps at the art museum Thursday, and Jason Kelce gave a rousing lecture on the meaning of the word underdog for Philadelphia.

Malcolm Jenkins also hit the underdog theme: ”They doubted us as players, they doubted us as a team.”
The team descended the art museum steps to Meek Mill’s ”Dreams and Nightmares.” The incarcerated Philadelphia rapper’s song has become an anthem for the team this season.

The championship Philadelphia Eagles are making their way through the jubilant throngs of fans at the city’s first-ever Super Bowl parade, but don’t expect any official estimate of the crowd size.
The city has said they aren’t planning to release any crowd size estimates after Thursday’s festivities, making any number a guess as easily inflatable as a football (sorry Pats fans).
But there’s certainly a massive, roaring crowd. Easily hundreds of thousands of groupies are lining the 5-mile (8-kilometer) route from the stadium to the art museum’s ”Rocky” steps. It’s a much longer route than the Phillies had for their 2008 World Series championship parade in 2008 Ronald Acuna Jr. Atlanta Braves Jersey , and more spread out than the crowds for Pope Francis’s visit in 2015.
Organizers prepared for as many as 2 million people.

Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie stood atop an open-air double-decker bus along with quarterbacks Nick Foles, Carson Wentz and third-stringer Nate Sudfeld as they made their way through the throngs. Lurie held a sign reading ”Thank You Fans” and a smiling Super Bowl MVP Foles brandished the Vince Lombardi trophy. Coach Doug Pederson disembarked from the bus to show off the trophy to the thrilled crowds; other players tossed T-shirts to fans along the route.
And Jason Kelce walked along – dressed in full Mummers regalia looking somewhat like Aladdin – shaking hands with fans and leading them in chants.
Hundreds of thousands of roaring, jubilant fans are in position to cheer their heroes along the way to the art museum’s ”Rocky” steps.
The Eagles have landed on Broad Street: The championship parade Philadelphia has dreamed about for decades is finally underway.
Players are cruising along the 5-mile (8-kilometer) parade route atop open-air, double-decker buses. They started off near their stadium just before 11 a.m. Thursday and winding up at the art museum’s ”Rocky” steps.
Many players are sporting their parade finest: Chris Long is donning a faux full-length fur coat over an Allen Iverson 76ers jersey. Jason Kelce is in full Mummers regalia, faintly resembling an Aladdin costume in a nod to Philadelphia’s raucous annual parade on New Year’s Day.
Hundreds of thousands of roaring, jubilant fans are in position to cheer their heroes along the way. Organizers are prepared for as many as 2 million people.
All roads and rails lead to Philadelphia as fans pour into the city for the Eagles’ Super Bowl parade.
People began lining the 5-mile (8-kilometer) route before dawn Thursday. Organizers are prepared for as many as 2 million people, but the actual number may be much lower.
Many fans are taking mass transit. New Jersey Transit on Wednesday suspended ticket sales on it Stephen Curry backpedaled in pure joy. He skipped, hollered and let the ball fly from everywhere with that feeling he gets when there’s no way it will miss – unwavering even with a defender’s hand in his face.
Curry dazzled in outdueling LeBron James as the two superstars traded big shots and celebratory moves Rich Hill Los Angeles Dodgers Jersey , hitting an NBA Finals-record nine 3-pointers and scoring 33 points to lead the Golden State Warriors to a 122-103 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Sunday night for 2-0 lead.
”Pretty special night,” Curry said, ”and hopefully some more special things happen and we get two more wins.”
Kevin Durant found his steady stroke to score 26 points to go with nine rebounds and seven assists while also handling a load of the defensive assignment against James. Klay Thompson added 20 points playing on a tender left leg to put the defending champions two wins from a repeat title they have talked about since the season began last fall.
James followed up his 51-point performance in Game 1 with 29 points, 13 assists and nine rebounds in a far tamer finals sequel – and a much more lopsided one – minus the utter craziness of a drama-packed opener three days prior.
Game 3 is Wednesday night in Cleveland.
”We want to continue to be uncomfortable,” James said. ”Just because we’re going home doesn’t mean we can relax.”
Kevin Love had 22 points and 10 boards for the cold-shooting Cavs, who will now try to gain some momentum back home.
Curry had the shot of the night with 7:54 to play, making an off-balance swish from several feet behind the 3-point arc over Love as the shot clock wound down, then scooted backward in delight. Curry fell into the first row of fans with a baseline 3 again over Love and four-point play at the 5:44 mark of the fourth.
”He’s a big shot taker, big shot maker Tyler Austin New York Yankees Jersey ,” Draymond Green said. ”Tough shot taker, tough shot maker.”
The long shot over Love stood out to Curry’s Splash Brother, Thompson.
”About seven seconds on the clock he just kept going backward, I don’t know why, but he just threw it up and I didn’t think it had any chance of going in,” Thompson said. ”That was kind of like a dagger shot. It just gave us all the momentum back.”
The two-time MVP made 11 of 26 shots and was 9 for 17 from deep.
James pointed with both hands after his 3 with 11:04 remaining got his team within seven, before Curry answered from deep the next two trips down the floor.
”Those moments when you can come down and answer and keep the momentum on our side, it’s big,” Curry said. ”Keep the crowd into it.”
Curry and James had a tense moment in the third Tre'Quan Smith Color Rush Jersey , too.
James became irate at the officials for a no-call on Curry, who ran beneath the Cavs star and didn’t let him land with 3:54 remaining in the quarter as James caught Love’s long pass and went out of bounds. Cavs coach Tyronn Lue was hit with a technical, saying afterward he didn’t say much but was on the court.
JaVale McGee scored 12 points, making all six of his shots in his first career NBA Finals start as Kerr made a lineup switch that proved spot on.
The typically efficient Durant connected on 10 of 14 shots after going just 8 for 22 – 1 of 7 on 3s – in the opener but still scoring 26 points.
Last year’s NBA Finals MVP made his initial five field goals Sunday, driving right at James on offense and doing all he could to fluster him on defense.
James hit a 3 over Durant’s outstretched arm midway through the third, then Tristan Thompson’s basket the next possession pulled the Cavs within 72-66. But they couldn’t contain Curry and the rest of the Warriors for extended stretches.
The Warriors vowed to make it harder for James to generate good looks after he shot 19 for 32 in the series opener, and James went 12:06 of game time between made baskets.
James went 10 for 20, showing few signs his shot was altered by a bloodshot left eye. He had been taking antibiotics and using drops after being poked in the eye by Green in the first half Thursday.
The Warriors earned a wacky 124-114 overtime win in Game 1 Thursday night – featuring J.R. Smith’s blunder when he grabbed an offensive rebound in the waning moments of regulation and dribbled back toward halfcourt rather than shooting for the victory, and an overturned charge call against James.
Smith received rousing cheers from the home fans during pregame introductions and ”M-V-P!” chants greeted him when he went to the foul line.
Thompson played after bruising his lower left leg when Smith slid into him in the first quarter Thursday. The Warriors All-Star has never missed a postseason game.
Kerr went with 7-foot big man McGee to start in place of Kevon Looney – McGee’s 10th career start in the postseason.
McGee scored the first four points as Golden State made its initial seven shots and 10 of 11.
Another key role player http://www.cowboysauthorizedshops.com/a … ite-jersey , Shaun Livingston, made his five field-goal tries for 10 points to give Golden State a lift in the first half after making all four of his shots Thursday.
”They’re a dangerous ballclub no matter what,” James said. ”It starts with those four guys, those four All-Stars. Everybody else just does their job and they don’t miss a beat when they put someone in or they take someone out.”
Cavaliers: James’ first-half line: 15 points, eight assists, seven rebounds, two steals. His first points – the first for Cleveland – came on a goaltend by McGee. … .
