2008 World Series Parade, Philadelphia

“Police expect more than a million people to converge on Center City to watch the Phillies take their noontime victory ride on flatbed trucks from 20th and Market Streets, around City Hall, and down Broad Street to Citizens Bank Park.

The only other time the Phillies won a World Series, in 1980, fans threw boxloads of computer punch cards and shredded paper from office windows onto Broad Street.”

Take your patience pill,” [said Mayor Nutter] “You can be joyous, but you can’t be a jackass.”
