Chicago Blackhawks Parade 2013

Well, there is not much I totally have to have or love, but when it comes to my Chicago Blackhawks, I can’t miss!  This year, I think I even watched more games than my husband.  And they are the only sports team I follow on Twitter, because when I’m at a wedding, I still need to get my updates, and they do an excellent job giving me a play by play.  So when they won the Stanley Cup in 2010, I sooo wanted to go to the parade and rally, but I had a small problem, well, I shouldn’t call him a problem.  My son was only one and my husband said I absolutely could not bring him with me.  So I vowed the next time they win, he had to promise me we get to go.  So as soon as we scored the last goal, after I was done shouting and jumping up and down, I looked at my husband and said, ” We are absolutely going this time!”  And so be it!  We left the house around 6:20am to get a glimpse of all the action.  I even ran into my photographer friend Bob Davis on the street.  So yes in a sea of 2 million people who attended, I found someone I knew. It was great seeing him though!

What a blast today was!  I was so excited to be there and catch a glimpse of the cup and the players.  The only bummer was I didn’t get to see Shaw or Kane until after they passed, but got some great shots of the rest of them!  You have no idea how hard it was to get these shots through the crowd and confetti.   So I am apologizing again to the guy in front of me that I kept hitting in the back of the head with my large lens!  Sucks being short!  Enjoy and GO HAWKS!!!
