An estimated nine hundred million people lined Wuxi’s Zhongshan Road to watch a ticker parade parade held to honor the Expatdom’s two most recent sports championships won by the Wuxi Red Guards and the Wuxi Jaywalkers.
The Wuxi Red Guards, who normally play American Football and win Super Bowls, found themselves sharing a parade with the Baseball Jaywalkers after winning the Rugby World Cup disguised as the New Zealand All-Blacks.
The Wuxi Jaywalkers, who last week disguised as the St. Louis Cardinals won their seventieth consecutive World Series title, didn’t mind sharing the limelight with the Red Guards. Said Jaywalker manager Casey Stench: "Another Year, another baseball world championship, another ticker-parade, another five hundred million people coming to greet us! It can get dull. It is nice to have someone up there with us!"
