Blackhawks Win Stanley Cup. Let's Celebrate!

When you're in Chicago and the Blackhawks win the Stanley Cup after 49 years, even a tourist feels compelled to cheer on the team. Oh yea, the fans got creative with their signs.  I could actually print this one!

This little hockey player was so excited to be there for the parade in the sweltering 85 degrees and humid atleast as high.  He was thrilled!

Can you believe I stood among what was estimated as a crowd of 2 MILLION crazed fans in downtown Chicago to cheer the Blackhawks? What, am I totally crazed? (Don't answer that!)

Yes, you read that right.  They say 2 MILLION fans came to the parade to cheer on this team that overcame the odds to win the Stanley Cup.  As they say, "It was Fandemonium!"

A few young "well-oiled" fans climbed the bus shelters for a better view.  They were warned to get down, most didn't. They were soon handcuffed and carted off to the disgruntled chants of the crowd.

After awhile we wised up and went...

You guessed it!  We went to the nearest bar, had a tall cool one and a good burger and watched this crazy event unfold in air conditioned comfort. What a day to remember is Sweet Home Chicago!
