This is a silly thread. Obviously the accomplishment of the women’s national team doesn’t come close to the significance of putting a man on the moon (in the 60’s no less,) but if that is the standard we’re gonna hold parades to, then there should be almost no parades at all. We would only be having parades for major scientific accomplishments. That’s downright silly.

Tell me, we’re any of you this upset over the extravagant 4th of July RNC event the president held with tax payer money? Or is it only liberal parades that grind your gears?

I can think of some modern celebrants who would qualify for such a parade.
I think there are memorial plaques embedded in the sidewalk down there, too.
