Move over, Kermit the Frog.

Next Thursday's 83rd annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City will not only feature the famous Sesame Street balloon of the precocious frog, but the first American to win the ING New York City Marathon in 27 years, Meb Keflezighi. The New York Road Runners announced today that Keflzighi will ride on the Stature of Liberty Float alongside 2009 Miss America, Katie Stam.

The parade, one of New York's great street parties which is sponsored by the department store bearing the same name, will be broadcast live on NBC television from 9:00 a.m. to noon in each time zone in the country (check local listings).
