Yo, Rocky, Get Over to Love Park

Look for the parade of Rockys wearing "Italian Stallion" robes



    Yo, Rocky, Get Over to Love Park

    Even if you're not a Rocky Balboa fan, you need to get to Love Park at 10 a.m. for the march of 1,000 Rockys.

    They'll be the ones decked out in gold and black Rocky Balboa -- "The Italian Stallion" -- robes on their way to the Philadelphia Museum of Art and the Rocky statue.

    It's just a big publicity stunt to promote "Rocky - The Undisputed Collection," for all those Rocky Balboa fans who would love to have all six Rocky films in one beautiful package.

    But there's a cheesesteak eating contest -- with contestants wearing boxing gloves -- and free giveaways from Snapple, Tastykakes and Pretzels from Philly Soft Pretzel too.
