    Chris Russo was railing on this today and he is absolutely right. They are having a parade at 11am Friday during a weekday which is going to inconvenience people who work or have to get to the city. The team has nothing to do with NYC. In addition the city is spending over $1 million to stage the parade when they are struggling to pay for other city services. The team were heavy favorites to win the cup over Japan. This isn't an underdog story. New York is already packed during the Summer with tourists. Why not hold the parade in Washington, DC. New York City and Philadelphia already have to spend huge money this fall when the Pope visits. You can't believe the expenditures they are laying out for security alone. In the Philadelphia they are talking about building an 8ft high perimeter fence in the city.

    They can make history of another kind as the first all-female championship team ever to parade up Broadway — transformed into a Canyon of Heroines.

    :salute:

    They should combine it with the Puerto Rican day parade. Kill two birds with one stone.

    is it still a parade if no one bothers to come and cheer?

    di blasio is such a panderer. i didn't realize anyone gave a damn about women's soccer...the only thoughts i had were that i was hoping japn would win.
    but i couldn't muster enough interest to watch one second.

    The World Cups are huge deals.

    More Americans watched the Women's World Cup final than the NBA Finals or the Stanley Cup

    They should get Donald Trump to build that 8 foot high perimeter fence.
    It'll be impenetrable!

    That would be an interesting mix. Kind of like parading the chickens in front of the foxes

    Puerto Rican Day Parade attacks
    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    The Puerto Rican Day Parade attacks occurred on June 11, 2000 in New York City and involved multiple assailants who harassed, sexually assaulted, and robbed random victims. Many of the attacks were caught on video and received worldwide attention. The New York City Police Department was greatly criticized for its handling of the attacks. Eventually, over fifty women reported being harassed or assaulted.
