Did anyone went to the parade? I am surprised that are no thread about it
I was downtown to do some stuff and I completly forgot that there was a parade.
While, I was waiting for a friend, the parade begun so I stopped and watched it. It was pretty cool to see Jon Montgomery holding a flag a few feet away from he. I also saw Erik Guay, Kalyna Roberge, Marie-Philippe Poulin among others. Joanie Rochette and Alex Bilodeau were sitting in a car with the mayor but they went by really fast.
The best part was seeing Scott Niedermayer, because his car stopped for a few minutes on McGill College (the street where I was). Actually, he was sitting with Hayley Wickenheiser (whom was closer to our side) so I only took a few crappy pictures with my cellphone! But still I didn't expected to see Scott Niedermayer from so close today. I also wished that I had something to signed because they even took some time to sign jerseys/autographs
I presume that it is for logistic issues, but I don't really understand why they organize the Parades (Olympic, Alouettes, Impact (wasn't a parade, but the event was during the week) during the week, during business hours.
I always missed those events and I will miss the Habs' Stanley Cup Parade in June !
