They are not allowing that this year (to be more specific, they are not allowing people to walk on the streets behind the buses).

Thanks I just read that as well. They also aren't opening the park until 8am. I'd imagine people will be lined up after 6am

I think I'm gonna try to get a spot for the parade on Washington between Lasalle and State. Then head to a bar for the rally.

I woke up four minutes ago to go take the train down. Four hours of sleep for a chance to sniff respectable distance of the stage is worth it. Will post pictures later.

By doing the wild thing such as going to the Hawks official site, I found that it will be streamed by CSN Chicago. http://www.csnchicago.com/blackhawks-parade

Have a fun time everyone that is going! I would go, but I have work. To be honest, even if I didn't have work I probably wouldn't go mainly because most of the people I know that are going became a bandwagon blackhawks superfan like a month ago and think "toes" is the cutest and I feel like that will be the majority of the people there

The closer this thing got, the less I found myself wanting to go so I decided to just watch on TV. I'm getting old.

WGN showed a pretty large crowd already formed at Hutchinson Field. The Loop is going to be a mess.

The parade in 2010 was full of drunk teenagers so I can see why.

Speaking of that, overheard a couple of those drunk teenage girls talking about someone named Patrick Toews... Whoever that is

Hahaha. They have those shirts with all the players' names on the back so all the bandwagon fans can know who is on the team I think.

It would be nice if some would take some energy in knowing just a little bit.

hahaha and the players should all wear nametags so no one gets
confused. drunk teenagers are easily confused even if all our players are already wearing jerseys

The park looks like it is going to be full hours before the parade starts.

One thing I can see I'm missing out on is a large amount of short shorts.

There was definitely a ton of those out there on my way to work. Also a bunch of people hanging out outside my building (CBOT).

Yep, I am in the building just east of you. Hopefully they are out of here before the close.

I wish I could, but I can't. We have a pretty significant report today that I cannot miss.

I am definitely going to try and stream it if things do not get too hectic.
