Security Tight in Philadelphia as Victory Parade Celebrates Super Bowl Champion Eagles

Security Tight in Philadelphia as Victory Parade Celebrates Super Bowl Champion Eagles

― Reuters picNEW YORK, Feb 9 ― Hundreds of thousands of Eagles fans flooded the streets of Philadelphia yesterday to salute the National Football League team's upset Super Bowl victory over the heavily favoured New England Patriots.

Tim Norton, 29, said he arrived at about 6:45 a.m. In fact, he predicted it wouldn't be long until Philly got its offense back on the field.

He laughed as he talked about how his daughters nearly got into a fight with a lady who was taking up too much space at the parade by City Hall, their viewing area. "GO EAGLES!" he said.

The parade starts near the team's stadium and culminates its 5-mile (8-kilometer) trek at the art museum steps that Sylvester Stallone climbed in the "Rocky" movies.

This is the Eagles' first Super Bowl victory. Head coach Doug Pederson and others proudly held high the Super Bowl trophy. After the Eagles scored a go-ahead touchdown with just over two minutes remaining, Philadelphia's defense was faced with a seemingly impossible task: stopping Tom Brady from re-taking the lead with ample time left.

After that long dry spell, fans along the parade route talked of sharing the celebration with their late loved ones.

Before dawn in frigid wind chills in the low 20s, people have started lining the parade route Thursday to celebrate the team's first National Football League title in almost 60 years.
