I looked at the route of the Blackhawks Parade this morning, and realized it goes right in front of my building which is in the "O" of "RANDOLPH ST."
My neighbor Garry the Cop is one of these guys.
He's a really nice guy so, you know, do what he asks.
RELEASE THE HOUNDS! About 9:26.
And now at 10:20 it looks like some weird Lollapalooza where you have to wear red:
And... here they come!
The first bus has The Cup!
Is that Toews? Or Hossa?
So then I did the dumbest thing.
I grabbed a couple people and said, "Hey lets run out front and watch."
So we got in the elevator and by the time we got downstairs?
Everyone was leaving.
The whole parade had already gone by.
Remember last year when it was so unorganized and...drunk?
And therefore...more fun?
Not so much this year.
All planned to perfection (except for Corey Crawford's mouth, thank GOD!).
Anyway, ran back upstairs and there go the busses up Columbia.
This is where I began to think that my vantage point wasn't so good unless you like wide shots of crowds, but there you go...
Watched the speeches on Oif's computer, pretty dang awesome.
