Reactions from the parade

Parade 11:6.pngI was not able to attend today’s Yankee ticker tape parade due to my Algebra teacher. But, regardless, a million New Yorkers crowded the streets of Broadway as the Yankees floated by in the chilly, windy weather. An estimated 33% of the fans were from outside the five boroughs. For many of the Yankee players — including playoff star Alex Rodriguez — it was their first time taking the victory ride. Here are some quotes and reactions from the parade.

“We welcome you all to the biggest party in town!”
– Michael Bloomberg

“Just incredible. A magical day; it’s hard not to enjoy that. New York has the best fans in the world.”
– Hal Steinbrenner

“They never get old. It’s been 10 years. It’s amazing. The
parade is extra special because everybody is celebrating with you.”
– Joe Girardi

“You feel like the president waving to everyone. You wish you could
thank everyone. I think they know we appreciate it.”
– Derek Jeter

“I’m so overjoyed. You don’t know how many times you’re going to
get the opportunity to be in a tickertape parade in New York City.”
– Johnny Damon

“Andy told me it’d be a mob scene. It’s amazing, the amount of people who are out there celebrating what we do.”
– CC Sabathia

“It was something special. You never take it for granted when you have the chance. I thank God.”
– Mariano Rivera
