Fans of the world champion Los Angeles Rams turned out in University Park on Wednesday to celebrate with their Super Bowl-winning team.
Wednesday’s celebratory parade wound its way past the USC University Park Campus, from the Shrine Auditorium to Figueroa Street and on to Exposition Park, where a rally was held in front of the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.
It was a homecoming of sort for the Rams: USC’s storied stadium was home to the Rams from 1946 to 1979, and again from 2016-2019 while SoFi Stadium in Inglewood was under construction. The Coliseum itself holds a special place in Super Bowl history: It hosted the very first AFC-NFC championship game, now known as Super Bowl I.
And while it may have been disconcerting to see so much blue and gold in cardinal-and-gold territory, the neighborhood played a proud host.
