Today is an unbelievable day in Chicago. The Blackhawks rally this morning, the crosstown classic between the White Sox and the Cubs at Wriggley this afternoon, opening day of Blues Fest in Grant Park and no rain -- at least not downtown yet.

Did any of the locals go to the parade/rally today? I was planning on coming down for Blues Fest this afternoon but changed my mind. Total crowd estimate along the entire route is 2 million.
Shame on me--but I went to work this morning in downtown Chicago and stayed inside the building all day.
Some of my coworkers left the building for the parade and then came back to work afterwards.
I wonder if Gargamel or Joefromchicago went to the parade. (They also work in this area.)
