Taney Parade Will March Down Broad Street Tomorrow

Screen Shot 2014-08-25 at 9.41.25 AM

The details for tomorrow’s Taney parade have been announced, and it all starts at 20th & Market at 2 p.m. tomorrow. From there, “The parade route will travel east on Market Street, go around the southwest corner of City Hall, and travel south on Broad Street down to FDR Park at Broad and Pattison Streets.” Along the way, the parade will make stops at the Kimmel Center — where the Philly POPS! will play — and at Broad & Washington — where some Mummers will perform. Once the parade hits FDR Park (at approximately 4 p.m.) there will be a rally and some speeches, all before they team heads into Citizens Bank Park to be honored. Tickets are still available for the Phillies game tomorrow night (because of course they are) and $6 of your ticket purchased here goes towards Taney Little League and you get a Taney T-shirt.

    1. ^^^ 100% correct. I mean, I am pretty sure this team got plenty of accolades for their run. A parade is meant for championships. Enough already.

    2. Since the city of Philadelphia is having a parade for another team that didn’t win the big one,how about having parades for other Philly sports teams that lost in the finals such as;

      1993 Phillies
      1997 Flyers
      2001 Sixers
      2004 Eagles

  1. Not even 3rd place. At best 5th place. And this after the ceremony the other day. The soft racism of low expectations.

  2. Hey Jim Badhair, go fuck yourself you sorry ass sack of shit. Youre thr worst fucking writer Ive seen this side of the mississippi since Kyle Scott. I hope you squirt diarrhea all over Kyle and he fires you.

  3. Oh, for fuck’s sake.

    Center city will be brought to a grinding halt, on a week day afternoon, for some kids who didn’t win anything? If it wasn’t for one specific player, no one would have given a shit about any of this.

    If this team was from Fox Chase or Somerton; and had only white boys for players; does anyone really think they would be getting a parade down Broad Street?

    Enough already.

    1. That Babe Ruth League team from Broomall actually won something, Upper Darby should host a parade down 69th St.

  4. Yeah this is getting rediculous. I’m all about feel good stories, especially when it involves kids, but holy hell a parade?! what a waste of money….

  5. These kids were treated like total rock stars for two weeks. Mo’ne was even blowing off major national journalists for interviews. So now what? Grown men who are forced to retire due to age, injuries, etc., often times can’t deal with being out of the spotlight, so how are twelve year old kids supposed to deal with it?

  6. Who is paying for the parade, the police presence, and the subsequent cleanup? The Philly school district is flat-ass broke and running a budget deficit of tens of millions of dollars.

    Superintendent Hite said their financial situation is so dire that he’ll have to burn down schools and fire employees in front of their children on Christmas Eve if the city doesn’t raise more tax money for him. The Mayor wrings his hands and says the state needs to cover the shortfall because they’re broke.

    But suddenly there is money to have a parade for a bunch of teenagers who finished middle of the pack in a youth baseball tournament?

  7. I can’t name one person on this team besides that girl mone Davis. Why the fuck are they getting a parade again? I thought parades were for champions. Sad day in Philly sports when we’re glorifying being losers smh

    1. Of course it is!!! Although I’m clueless as to where the guilt comes from! The white man didn’t start slavery. The black man sold his own kind to the white man! They want reparations, tell them to give Africa a call!!!

  8. You KNOW if this team was mostly white there would be no fuckin’ parade! Sickening! A parade for third place is worse than giving trophies to members of a last place team for participation!
