We left the house really early yesterday (like about 5:30 a.m.) and headed to Chicago. We drove for about 2½ hours and then took the L downtown. Then we hoofed it to the parade site and staked a spot along the railing on Monroe Street, just west of Jefferson.
It was us and a mass of thousands and thousands of red-clad Hawks fans.
Once settled in, we waited....like two hours worth of waiting. A 30 minute rain storm gave us something to pass a bit of the time. But the weather cleared by the time the parade kicked off.
Here's what we saw....buses and buses of Blackhawks!
It was pretty exciting to see and cheer for champions from Chicago. We don't get to do that very often.
I hope to be back in late October for another celebration...this time in blue instead of red.
