They done Good!
The “Big Apple ‘ gives them props!
The United States’ victorious women’s national soccer team rolled up Broadway on Wednesday, cheered by thousands and showered in confetti. The team, which defeated the Netherlands, 2-0, on Sunday in the Women’s World Cup final in Lyon, France, traversed the Canyon of Heroes, a stretch of Broadway from Battery Park to City Hall.
The parade is being televised on the local networks in New York; on Fox Sports 2 and ESPNU nationally; and streaming on the ESPN app. It was followed by a ceremony at City Hall hosted by Mayor Bill de Blasio.
Bagpipers, motorcyclists and rows of police officers joined the floats of soccer stars in the parade. The mayor waved an American flag surrounded by members of the team wearing black “world champion” shirts and their winners’ medals.
Governor Andrew Cuomo was on a separate players’ float, and he, Crystal Dunn, Tobin Heath, and other players were seen chanting “equal pay.” The team’s players have objected that the American men’s team is paid more, though its performances are significantly weaker.
