After the Philadelphia Eagles won the Super Bowl, head coach Doug Pederson said they were going to party. He wasn’t joking around.
The Eagles embarked on their championship parade through Philadelphia on Thursday during which millions of fans surrounded the team buses as they cruised the streets. As the bus passed one crowd, a fan threw a beer up to the bus and Pederson caught it with one hand without hesitation.

The impressive snag earned a big cheer from the crowd as the head coach and his team kept cruising. Unfortunately the video doesn’t show Pederson popping it open, but we like to imagine he shotgunned that thing with ease.
The Eagles Super Bowl parade was rowdy, but not nearly as rowdy as the riots that tore up the city just a few days before. (RELATED: Watch Doug Pederson’s Emotional Locker Room Speech After The Super Bowl)
