Everyone loves a parade, primarily because they can be quite fun, which is the reason why there are numerous parades which take place throughout North America, including the annual one that takes place every Thanksgiving. There exists one type of parade though that only a select few cities can enjoy a year, one that is dedicated solely to championship winning sports teams. There is a championship parade held each year in a city whose MLB, NHL, NFL, or NBA team wins a title, and these types of parades are always filled with excitement for the athletes, fans, and team owners. Billionaire Mark Cuban, is one of these owners, and when his team the Dallas Mavericks won the NBA championship for the first time in 2011, he paid around 1.2 million dollars for the team’s parade. Expenses for this parade included a bottle of champagne for the athletes which alone was $90,000, and he also tipped the parade’s staff an extra $20,000.
