Blackhawks’ Stanley Cup victory parade set for Friday

The City of Chicago and the Chicago Blackhawks will celebrate the Blackhawks’ Stanley Cup victory with a parade this Friday morning.

Mayor Rahm Emanuel didn’t releases any details about the parade at an unrelated news conference on the West Side Tuesday.

But he had high praise for the team after watching Monday night’s cup-clinching victory.

He called the come-from-behind win the “Miracle on Ice.”

He also says he met with the team Tuesday morning at Scout Bar in the South Loop.

“I didn’t knew beer was the breakfast of champions,” Emanuel quipped.

    Congrats BLACKHAWKS!, I hope the mayor and powers to be rethinks this parade idea. Chicago and the area near and far are hard working every day people. The mayor takes care of his friends, VIP's, and high rollers. How about a parade on Saturday so the regular people can honor thier hero's. How about it mayor, let us see the CHAMPS too.

    And in the event it HAS to be Friday, keep it on Washington just like 2010 so the maximum number of Chicagoans can sneak out of work on a break and view the parade! If we can't get to the rally due to work obligations at least let us see the parade! The rally location at Michigan/Wacker also allowed many more folks to view that rally from the surrounding buildings than will ever see it viewing a stage from a mile away, in Grant Park. 2010 was a peoples' parade and rally and it was fan-tastic!
