Super Bowl parade mood: "Is this what heaven's like?"

Andrew Timmons showed up around midnight at Broad Street and Pattison Avenue, wearing a Brian Westbrook jersey over a hoodie over an Eagles scarf, his entire face painted midnight green.

“It’s insane. Totally insane. And the fact that we were underdogs the whole time means even more,” Cole said, wandering among the crowd at Broad and Wharton. “This right here is proof that Philly is love. No one can ever take this away.”

Then, at 11:41 a.m., from Broad and Ritner, you could see a puff of confetti to the south. The already boisterous crowd took it up another notch as the team rolled in behind a phalanx of cops riding Harley Davidsons festooned with Eagles flags and a drumline that gave the scene a touch of Mad Max.

A unexpected chant erupted at Broad Street and Washington Avenue just before 9:30 a.m. “Here come the Patriots!” multiple fans yelled…at a line of passing trash trucks.

Bud Light promised to dish out an untold number of free brews at 34 bars near the parade route. If light beer is not your thing, Yards Brewing is giving out free pale ales at its brewpub at Fifth Street and Spring Garden Street.

    The best things Eagles fans said at the Super Bowl parade in Philadelphia - Philly
    Eagles fans started lining up for Thursday's Super Bowl parade well before the first light of dawn fell across the city. With a lot of time to kill -and a lot of adult beverages to help keep fans somewhat warm 'n' fuzzy -Broad Street was bound to be littered with more sharp one-liners than green and white confetti.
