Update: And then Ali went and shared my photo on her Instagram feed. Feels pretty good!
How amped was the crowd at the US Women's National Team ticker tape parade? Before the parade even started, everyone was *roaring* applause for the guy who brought a dozen rolls of toilet paper for people to toss around. Clearly, in the land of the parade watchers, the man with the endless tp supply is king. Once the show started, all hell broke loose with small child limbs flying out of nowhere and tiny voices discovering previously uncharted octaves. It was all very loud and very fun. The soccer team looked pretty happy too.
