Today’s parade celebrating the Blackhawks’ winning the Stanley Cup is estimated as having attracted two million people, as it wound its way through the Loop towards the rally at Soldier Field. For those who don’t know, the Stanley Cup is the Holy Grail of North American professional Ice Hockey. It originated in Canada in 1893, but the last time a Canadian team won it was in 1993.
In that there were no riots, no property destrution, as has happened with other sport championship celebrations, the festivities were civilized to the point of being uninteresting. As for myself, I don’t care about championships.
