Eagles fans already have created an impressive display of humanity along the parade route in Philadelphia, long before the parade begins. It’s so impressive that it’s a little terrifying, as evidenced by the photo accompanying this post, taken earlier today at the Philadelphia Museum of Art.

Philly fans have every right to celebrate the first Super Bowl win in franchise history, and the first NFL title since Chuck Bednarik celebrated by double-fisting tobacco products in the locker room, 57 years ago.

Here’s also hoping that a smattering of arrests are the worst things that happen on Thursday.
