Ed Reed singing “Two Ticket to Paradise.” Ray Lewis dancing (we assume). Joe Flacco smiling. Stringer Bell and Omar and Bunk and McNulty chilling (Ok, that part we made up_? Sounds like a sweet party. From NFL.com:
It didn’t take long for pandemonium to break out once the Super Bowl XLVII victory parade commenced in Baltimore just before noon Tuesday. Ed Reed stole the show early on, serenading the crowd with Eddie Money’s Two Tickets to Paradise before eschewing his float to walk the parade route. With a microphone pilfered from a local reporter and a camera strapped to his head, Reed carried the Lombardi Trophy through the streets of Baltimore, allowing fans to reach out and touch the grand prize. On the heels of Reed’s performance, the scene turned to one of bedlam as fans ignored barriers and flocked to the military vehicle in which Ray Lewis was riding. Six mounted police officers kept the throng at bay. With an estimated the crowd at 80,000, M&T Bank Stadium reached maximum capacity in short order, forcing police to close the gates.
