I went to the parade! I'll post video tomorrow morning for all of you. It includes sound. I got a really good shot of Hossa and a good video with Toews and the Conn Smythe. OMG, it was AWESOME.
I never knew ticker tape could hurt. Haha. I had some heavy chunks fall on my head and was surprsied by it. I was completely covered in ticker tape. It was so amazing. What a great time!
I went to Theory (an official Blackhawks bar) after the parade and caught the rally from there. (It's mear blocks from the actual rally.) The bar was PACKED to the gills and everyone was cheering and singing. LOVED. IT.
Photos tomorrow. I promise!!!!! Daley, once again, put on a great show.
Wish I could have caught the rally... just got back from the parade which was absolutely incredible! I'll post pictures and video later tonight or tomorrow... unfortunately, I didn't get good vids (totally forgot I was trying to record on my phone while I attempted to take pics with my camera).
Watching Toews lift the cup on the back of a double decker bus with tickertape raining down = amazing.
I'm not gonna lie, I was about half a block back from the stage and couldn't hear a thing. I did think the "*********" chant (and the pelting!) for those guys on the street cleaner was ****ing hilarious.
I managed to get up to the rails before they left, and it was just amazing to see that cup. Unforgettable.
But it was worth it , I had a great spot also to see the main stage + the Jumbo tron in my section
I was there as well in front of the fannie mae building but decided to leave before they arrived after people started passing out all around me. It took us forever to get a cop's attention, people were cheering the mail truck. I watched the rest of it on t.v.
