Why, yes, Carli Lloyd did drop a ‘Fly Eagles Fly' at USWNT parade


We were all united rooting for the U.S. women’s soccer team over the past month, but Jersey girl Carli Lloyd didn’t hide her allegiances this morning. 

While in New York City for the World Cup victory ticker tape parade, Lloyd let a crowd — likely filled with Giants and Jets fans — know about her favorite football team. 

There seemed to be a slight grumble in the crowd when Lloyd mentioned she was an Eagles fan but that didn’t deter her from letting a “Fly Eagle Fly” loose on the mass of people in front of her. 

Lloyd, 36, is a Delran, New Jersey native and has been an Eagles fan for a long time. She was even one of the celebrities — along with Julie Ertz, wife of TE Zach Ertz — to help the Birds announce their schedule earlier this offseason.
