Crowd Of 250,000 Expected To Attend Mavericks Championship Parade
A crowd of about 250,000 is expected to attend the Mavericks' championship parade today in Dallas, and organizers are "urging revelers to be prepared for traffic jams, crowds and steaming hot weather." Mavericks Owner Mark Cuban has said that the team "will pick up the tab for the city's parade costs." The route will begin at 10:00am CT at the Dallas Convention Center and will end at American Airlines Center (FT. WORTH STAR-TELEGRAM, 6/15).
FS Southwest will provide live coverage of the parade starting at 9:00am CT. At noon CT, the station will air the Rangers-Yankees game, and "Mavs Live Championship Celebration" coverage will switch to KDFW-Fox and FS Southwest Plus for a season-ticket-holder only event inside the arena (FS Southwest).
Meanwhile, members of the Mavericks read the Top Ten list on last night's episode of CBS' "Late Show," with Cuban saying, "If you thought I was cocky and obnoxious before … get ready." See today's Laugh Track for the full list.
