Julian Edelman is ready to party! After an amazing season and another Super Bowl win, he is ready to stroll down the streets of Boston on Tuesday.
After his team’s win on Sunday, the Patriots receiver came off the field and made a request from Patriots nation leading up to Tuesday’s parade. He said: “Tuesday I want record numbers at the parade. We just got six. Let’s go!”
The start of today’s parade will be at 11 a.m. from the Hynes Convention Center. The parade will go down Boylston Street, continue on to Tremont Street and then end on Cambridge Street. For those who cannot attend it, it will be streamed on Patriots.com.
Reports say that it’s going to be unseasonably warm in Boston, with temperatures around 55 degrees at the start of the parade. This sounds promising and probably a lot of people will show up to fulfill Edelman’s wish.
This was an especially important win for Edelman. After missing Super Bowl LII due to an injury, he came back and gave a Super Bowl MVP performance against Los Angeles. When asked about winning the MVP award, he said:
“It’s hard to [imagine], that’s for sure. I’m getting to live out a dream so it’s pretty surreal right now. I think everything happens for a reason. I was always taught as a young boy that you always just have to work hard. Work as hard as you can, put in the extra time and we will see where it goes. Worry about what you have on your plate at that time. That’s what I have tried to do.”
Patriots quarterback Tom Brady also praised him, saying:
“What did I see in Julian? I mean he just played the best game he has all year. So proud of him (and) what he’s accomplished coming back from his ACL (injury). He just fought it out, grinded it out just like everyone else.”
Edelman deserved that MVP award and we’re glad he got it!
