Thing to do when Broadway is going to be shut down for two hours to honor a World Cup-winning soccer team: make sure the pizza place you ordered 10 pies from for lunch is located on the same side of the street.
Earlier today, the world champion U.S. women’s national soccer team was fêted with a ticker-tape parade up Broadway and presented with the keys to the city in a ceremony at City Hall. It was the 206th parade up the “Canyon of Heroes” in New York’s history (full list here), and the crowd might’ve skewed younger and…
“Cavaliers? Nope. We won? Yupp. They suck? Yupp. We here? Yupp. They not? Nooope.” Draymond Green is in an especially, uh, blithe mood at today’s Golden State Warriors victory rally. Then he did this:
The Patriots are parading through Boston today, and walking beer pong tournament Rob Gronkowski is enjoying the festivities by wearing a children's hat and inefficiently putting beer in his mouth.
"We're not just the Parade of Dicks," Joe Thompson said. "But we do have a bunch of dick floats."

Also taken by surprise: city and team officials, who were woefully unprepared for the sheer number of people who showed up—especially the…
We hoped to recapture the magic of the single greatest headline/photo combination in Deadspin history, but the weather did not cooperate. Literally scores of fans were set to line the streets of downtown Indianapolis to fête their triumphant Fever, who prevailed in the best-of-5 WNBA finals this weekend, or maybe even…
I am a Giants fan, but I'm also fascinated by the human condition, and I happen to think nothing is more fascinating than a million people brought together by nothing more than a football team and the rare socially acceptable opportunity to get drunk before breakfast. It was with this in mind that I set off for Lower…
It's time for some uplifting news from the good folks at E:60! It's a rare occasion when "club in Long Island" is not the most soul-wrenching part of a story, but this is one of those times.
New Orleans has scheduled a parade for next Tuesday, "win or lose." The football gods don't like hubris, and they especially don't like fêting losers. So it's a jinx-jinx situation either way. [Indy Star]
