GUESTS: MIKE SIELSKI, ROBERT MAYS, BOBBY ALLYN, TOM MACDONALD, JASON LANTER

Today, an estimated two million people will attend the parade for the 2018 Super Bowl Champion Philadelphia Eagles. The route begins from the Lincoln Financial Field stadium to the steps of the Philadelphia Art Museum. Philadelphia-area schools and colleges are closed, SEPTA and PATCO are running on a modified schedule with limited services and the forecast will be cold and sunny. What more can Eagles fans ask for? We’ll talk with BOBBY ALLYN and TOM MACDONALD, WHYY reporters about the parade festivities. Obviously, police will have a large presence for this crowd to prevent rowdy behavior. JASON LANTER, psychology professor at Kutztown University, joins us to talk about celebratory fan violence. But first, we’ll be joined by MIKE SIELSKI, Philadelphia Inquirer sports columnist who was at the Super Bowl and ROBERT MAYS, staff writer of The Ringer to discuss the championship game, and reactions from fans in Minnesota and in Philadelphia.
