USA women to get parade in New York after winning World Cup
The U.S. Women’s national team will be given a deserved honor for claiming the World Cup.
New York City mayor Bill De Blasio announced moments after the team’s 2-0 win over the Netherlands on Sunday that the team will be granted a ticker tape parade down the Canyon of Heroes on Wedneday morning.
YES YES YES YES!
To our 2019 World Cup Champion @USWNT: you have inspired the entire country — and New York City knows how to celebrate champions. We’ll see you Wednesday at 9:30 AM for the Ticker Tape Parade down the Canyon of Heroes. #OneNationOneTeam pic.twitter.com/bwCEoJYg3r

A parade down the Canyon of Heroes is about the biggest event a title-winning team can get, and the honor is richly deserved here. Perhaps they’ll bring some tea with them for the party.
