Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Npr.org: “WATCH: Women's National Soccer Team Parades Through NYC's 'Canyon Of Heroes'”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

The U.S. Women's National Team is celebrating their World Cup championship with a ticker tape parade in New York City. Throngs of fans are packing Manhattan's famed "Canyon of Heroes" to greet the squad led by Megan Rapinoe.

The parade started at 9:30 a.m. ET, when Rapinoe, Alex Morgan, Rose Lavelle and their teammates will embark from Battery Park on the southern tip of Manhattan. From there, the parade will move north up Broadway to City Hall.

The parade includes about a dozen floats from which players will bask in the adulation of their fans. Bearing the U.S. national team's crest — with a new fourth star representing the latest world title — the floats will also carry officials and dignitaries along the parade route.

"It's gonna be liiiit," Rapinoe said, drawing out the word as she climbed aboard a float shortly before 9 a.m., with a Champagne flute in her hand.

"NYC it's parade time let's do this!" Kelley O'Hara said via Twitter. She added, "Bonus points to anyone who brings me a beer or 4."
