Chicago is getting ready to celebrate the 2nd Stanley Cup in 3 years today. The train station was packed but the monthly riders who pay for parking in advance stayed home. This is the monthly lot, nearly empty, the daily pay is already full, I missed taking that shot.
The train is packed, the train I ride begins in Hanover Park so since I know where to stand I go into my usual seat. By Schaumburg we were at capacity and that’s the next stop!
The celebration begins in 2 hours, people are walking to where the Hawks will be ending up to give speeches and party.
The parade route starting to fill up.
News cameras filling the street.
More of the parade route, in an hour this will be packed so tight people won’t be able to move. I’ll be at work… well… working! Ok, AND watching the festivities on our 100inch HD TV.
