first, it was the boston globe book they put out on sale entitled "19-0" NOW, the globe writes a story on city officials planning a parade http://www.boston.com/sports/football/patriots/articles/2008/01/29/parade_for_pats_is_issue_in_vote/ i mean, of course the city has to planned in advance, but cant we do this behind closed doors? this is the only year in which i can remember parade details coming out before a championship game(red sox or pats). this just gives the giants a little more motivation. if you watched the 2004 super bowl dvd, you saw how belichick used the details of philadelphia's planned parade to motivate his team. too late tom.
