One Philadelphia Eagles fan flew up from Tampa Bay, Fla., to spread his grandfather’s ashes over a victory parade route Thursday in Philadelphia to celebrate the team’s historic Super Bowl win.
The man wore a retired Jerome Brown 99 Jersey and scattered ashes out of a plastic bag, reported the New York Post. Other fans took similar action, spreading their deceased relatives ashes along the five-mile victory parade.
“Doesn’t get realer than scattering your grandfather’s ashes at the Eagles Super Bowl parade,” tweeted Maurice Peebles, a senior deputy editor for Bleacher Report.

Dustin Slaughter, a communications deputy for the Philadelphia District Attorney, bought his father’s cremation urn with him to celebrate the historic victory.
“It feels good to have him with me for a day like today,” Slaughter told Philly.com.
