鈥?Philadelphia’s first Super Bowl parade provided catharsis Thursday for hundreds of thousands of Eagles fans Jets Authentic Jerseys , deliriously joyful after decades without a title and relishing the national spotlight on a team that few outside the city thought could win it all.Fans clad in Eagles green jammed the streets from dawn near the stadium to an afternoon rally at the city’s famed “Rocky” steps, lining up 20 deep in spots to catch a glimpse of the champs. The Eagles rode in open-top double decker buses to the art museum that Sylvester Stallone made famous for a rally nearly 60 years in the making.Center Jason Kelce gave voice to every frustrated Philly fan with a remarkable, impassioned and profane speech that had him defending the general manager, the coach and a litany of players who supposedly weren’t smart enough, big enough or talented enough to win a championship.“We were a bunch of underdogs,” shouted Kelce, channeling Rocky himself. “Bottom line is we wanted it more!”And so did football-crazed Philly 鈥?desperately.Until Sunday’s 41-33 victory over the favored New England Patriots, the Eagles remained the only team in their division without a Super Bowl title 鈥?an ongoing humiliation that gave Philly an inferiority complex and made Eagles fans an easy target for fans of other teams, especially the rival Dallas Cowboys and New York Giants.“This Super Bowl championship is for you,” Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie told the vast crowd. “You are the most passionate and deserving sports fans on the planet. We couldn’t have done it without you.”Added Super Bowl MVP quarterback Nick Foles: “We finally did it. We’re Super Bowl champs!”The parade began at the Eagles’ stadium complex and slowly made its way up Broad Street past the cheering throngs. Carrying the Lombardi Trophy, coach Doug Pederson walked part of the route 鈥?allowing fans to touch the gleaming hardware 鈥?while Lurie held a sign saying “THANK YOU FANS” as he stood next to the team’s three quarterbacks: Foles, injured starter Carson Wentz and third-stringer Nate Sudfeld.Dan Tarvin, 29, was pumped after getting to high-five Pederson and GM Howie Roseman, who was instrumental in putting together a squad expected to compete for championships for years to come.“They are more than heroes. They’re legends. They’re immortal in this city Youth Jacksonville Jaguars Jerseys , forever,” Tarvin said.Corey Carter, 32, of West Philadelphia, clutched a woodcut of an Eagle that he dubbed the “Lombirdy Trophy.”“This is the greatest day!” Carter said. “Besides God, my kids and my wife, it’s Eagles. That’s all there is. My family and then Eagles, and this is the greatest day of my life, ever.”Schools, museums, courts, government offices and even the Philadelphia Zoo were shut down so the city could fete an underdog Eagles team that few outside Philadelphia thought had a prayer of beating the mighty Patriots led by superstar quarterback Tom Brady and coach Bill Belichick.Organizers prepared for as many as 2 million people, though city officials didn’t release a crowd estimate.Terry Gallen, a fan from Glen Mills, in the Philadelphia suburbs Cheap Fred Warner Jersey , said he “broke down like a baby and cried” when the Eagles won the Super Bowl.“It means everything,” Gallen said. “We’re loving it.”At the rally, Lurie, Pederson and a slew of players all took the microphone and dedicated Sunday’s victory to the fans.But it was the crowd-pleasing Kelce who best channeled the gruff but ultimately good-hearted “attytood” for which Philadelphians are famous.Wearing an outlandishly sequined Mummers getup 鈥?a nod to Philadelphia’s raucous New Year’s Day parade 鈥?Kelce declared that “no one wanted us. No analyst liked to see us win the Super Bowl. And nobody likes our fans.”He then led the crowd in a jolly 鈥?and filthy 鈥?chant set to the tune of “My Darling Clementine”: “No one likes us, no one likes us, no one likes us, we don’t care!” The big-bearded lineman uttered at least two profanities that made it onto live TV, recalling Chase Utley’s similarly profane speech at the Phillies’ World Series parade 10 years ago.Police investigated at least two stabbings on parade day, including one man stabbed inside a mall just off the route. No details about his condition were released. A second man was taken to a hospital with a stab wound, and police said they were trying to piece together what happened. City officials said they wouldn’t have arrest numbers until Friday.The parade was overwhelmingly peaceful, though, giving fans an emotional release after decades of disappointment.For lots of fans, the parade was a reminder of the Phillies’ victory lap after a 28-year World Series title drought.For others, it took on spiritual shades of the pope’s visit in 2015.“It is like a religion,” said Kevin Fry Korey Toomer Jersey Elite , 37, of Prospect Park in suburban Philadelphia, a press operator at the Inquirer and Daily News who helped print 700,000 copies of the Super Bowl edition that proclaimed “At Last!”And for Natasha Curley, 31, a janitor from Trenton, New Jersey, the Super Bowl title means that rival fans can stop their yapping 鈥?at least till next season.“This stops all the hate,” Curley said. “They got nothing to say now.”Associated Press reporter Kristen De Groot in Philadelphia and Michael Rubinkam in northeastern Pennsylvania contributed to this report. New England Patriots star tight end Rob Gronkowski is unlikely to hold out now, as ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting that he's expected to be "on time" for training camp on July 25.In a year in which there is the potential for some notable training camp holdouts, Patriots鈥?TE Rob Gronkowski will not be one. Gronkowski is expected to report to Patriots鈥?training camp July 25 on time, per source.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) July 17, 2018According to Spotrac.com, Gronkowski makes just an $8 million base salary in 2018, and it moves up to just $9 million in 2019. For a tight end of his caliber Cheap Chase Edmonds Jersey , that's being massively underpaid, but it doesn't appear as though Gronk is ready to hold out and try to earn a better contract this summer.It's been a dramatic offseason for the league's best tight end. After the Patriots lost to the Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl 52, Gronkowski hinted at retirement, saying he'd take a look at his long-term future before making a decision.Rumors from multiple reporters suggested that Gronkowski was getting frustrated with the physical toll football was putting on his body. On top of that, it was reported that he was fed up with the tight ship led by head coach Bill Belichick, with Gronk even considering retirement before last season started. But unless something unexpected happens in the coming weeks, it sounds like Gronkowski will suit up with the Patriots again in 2018. It's still possible that the team could trade him if they think there's good value to be had for Gronkowski, though such a move wouldn't happen for several more weeks.The Patriots would probably be better off keeping Gronkowski, given the lack of depth in pass-catchers. Brandin Cooks was traded to the Los Angeles Rams, Danny Amendola signed with the Miami Dolphins and Julian Edelman has handed a four-game suspension after failing a drug test.It's going to be a very interesting 2018 season in New England, given the challenges that await the defending AFC Championships. But this team has garnered a reputation for always overcoming the obstacles, so we shouldn't doubt what they can do this upcoming season..
