CONGRATULATIONS to your players, front office, and entire organization on winning Super Bowl LII! Sunday's game proved yet again who unquestionably has the best team in the NFL, and that's Philadelphia. You've captured the hearts of the entire city & region, including all of ours. We cheered, clapped, and cried tears of joy when you defeated New England and won the Lombardi Trophy. We may play a different sport, but you've made us all huge fans over here at One Citizens Bank Way with your relentless desire and passion to win. We truly couldn't be happier for each and every one of you, all Eagles fans, and our amazing city!
The trip down Broad Street to the Art Museum on Thursday will be a sight to be seen. We can't wait!
We have a little knowledge about just how exciting and overwhelming the parade can be, which is why some beloved members of the 2008 World Series Championship team wanted to share some tips to help make your experience as special as possible. Of course, members of our front office staff also have some suggestions, because it's not just the players who make the sacrifices and put in the work. It's a team effort throughout the organization, from top to bottom and everyone who proudly goes to work every day for you deserves to bask in that glory. You proved that time and time again throughout the season on the field.
You're our friends, our neighbors, and now SUPER BOWL CHAMPIONS. Congratulations and enjoy the moment!
The Phillies Organization
Parade Tips from Phillies Players and Coaching Staff
"Unleash your inner child and enjoy the moment like it's Christmas."
"We all had fun in '08 sharing our World Series victory with that great city and its fans. Time for you to do the same, Eagles. Congrats on bringing the city of Philadelphia its first Super Bowl! FLY, EAGLES, FLY!"
"Congratulations to the Eagles organization on winning the championship! Make sure to invite your wives on to the float!"
"When the fans throw you a beer on the float, pop the top and toast with them. And don't forget the earplugs!"
"Keep your eyes open for people with coolers and throwing beer to you. Just beware of the beer bottles. You'd better have good hands!
"We are bred as professional athletes to keep our composure and 'act like we've been there before,' but when it comes to winning a World Championship in Philadelphia - soak in every moment, hug your family while millions of people cheer you on and embrace this like the kid who dreamed of this moment his whole life! E-A-G-L-E-S, EAGLES!! Congrats!"
"To the entire Eagles organization and the great city of Philadelphia: cherish this moment for eternity. Once a champion, always a champion. This can never be taken away from you! Take it all in boys, because the city is about to unleash its unwavering dedication and respect for the best football team in the world, THE PHILADELPHIA EAGLES!"
"Congrats to the Eagles, you all just became legends in Philadelphia!"

"Parade day is obviously a day you never forget; a day you always hoped would happen but were never sure would; and a day you wish for again with no guarantee. Everything happens so quickly- the day flies by and that night you wonder where it all went. When you're heading down Broad Street, take a moment to reflect on the journey you and your colleagues experienced, not only during this championship season, but since your start with the organization. Take a few deep breaths and admire the emotion on the faces of your dedicated fan base who make all of this possible. Finally, don't forget to share the moment with your loved ones who support you every day, win or lose, even if they aren't riding next to you on that float. Parade day is the reason you work in sports, and it doesn't get any better."
Kevin from Sales
"Take a minute to soak it all in without the help of your phone. Trust me - you'll never forget the sight or the feeling when that float makes its first turn and the sea of people opens up. There will be enough of your talented colleagues taking pictures and video. Just share it with all of those people on the float next to you that know what it's like to lose 12 games in a season, go through a rebuild, work on holidays, have tough losses and now get to experience the joy of winning this city its first Super Bowl. Oh, and definitely bring a parade survival kit full of snacks, a phone charger and some cold ones."
