Parade Update: Utley Talks Dirty

From Chris down at Citizens Bank Park: Chase Utley stepped up to the mike and said: "World champions. World f------ champions!" Mayor Nutter said the crowd estimate is about 2 million but the city is reviewing video and aerial photos and may revise. In South Philadelphia, Nutter saw a guy holding a sign that said "I'm being joyous, not a jackass," referencing Nutter's message from yesterday. "We made eye contact," Nutter said. "I pointed. He smiled."
