PHILADELPHIA - The Philadelphia Eagles may have lost the Super Bowl, but that doesn't mean our beloved Birds didn't have a parade-worthy season!

What began as a small group of passionate Eagles fan, quickly grew into a crowd of chants and cheers making their way through the streets of Philadelphia in head-to-toe Eagles gear.
From a drum squad to a 74-year-old woman determined to make it all the way, Mike Jerrick was joined by Philadelphians who just wanted to thank the Eagles for such an amazing season!

At one point, Sister Francine from the Epiphany of Our Lord Parish stopped the parade to give her blessing.
"God bless you she said," as she sent the group on their way once again.
And just two hours later - they made it to the Linc! Mike Jerrick and some dedicated fans who stuck by his side the whole time let out one last chant for the Birds.
