Ticker Tape Parade celebrates US Woman's Soccer

Lower Manhattan was a party zone today as New York City threw a party for our World Cup Champions.

I have never been more proud of New York City. This was the FIRST time a parade has ever been given to a woman's sports team and the first honoring a woman since 1960.

The number of young girls in soccer attire was spectacular and the chants of "USA! USA! USA!" were at times deafening.

We could have done without the Mayor and Governor slinking into the photo ops with the top players and made it just about them, but what can you say, "It's Politics." And we all know that Mayor de Blasio is not one to shy away from using anything to make him look like a national politician.
