PHILADELPHIA SOUL PARADE DETAILS for Thursday re: note to myself remember to shoot this event
THE PHOTOS FROM PARADE are in Friday’s entry 8/1/08:
The Philadelphia Soul will celebrate bringing home the franchise’s first ArenaBowl title in style on Thursday, July 31 at 3 pm as the City of Philadelphia hosts a Championship Celebration at City Hall in Philadelphia.
The Soul won the title in New Orleans on Sunday, 59-56, against the San Jose SaberCats. Many notables will take part in the festivities on Thursday, including co-majority owners Jon Bon Jovi and Craig Spencer, as well as minority owner Leo Carlin Jr. and team president and minority owner Ron Jaworski.
Bon Jovi will not perform at the celebration, but Jon will address the fans. (Hmm when is that promised concert?)
Two-time ArenaBowl MVP QB Matt D’Orazio and the rest of the players will arrive at City Hall in style as Saturn of Philadelphia will provide Saturn Skys for transportation.
The coaching staff, play-by-play announcer Ari Wolfe, the Soulmates, Soulman, the Soul Band & Drumline and the Foster Trophy will also be there.
The celebration will start with a procession that will begin at 6th and Market Streets in Philadelphia, and with a police escort the owners, players, coaches and Soulmates will make their way to City Hall. (Why not down Broad Street?)
