Stanley Cup makes Millennium Park appearance today

The Chicago Blackhawks’ days with the Stanley Cup are numbered.

So a long line of Blackhawks fans got an up-close look at it, one more time, during an appearance at Millennium Park Wednesday morning.

The Cup was displayed at the Pritzker Pavilion stage from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

A line of people started forming 90 minutes before the event started.

“I passed up the opportunity the first time the Cup came to town (in 2010), and so I couldn’t let that happen again,” said James Henderson, who was first in line.

Anyone who wants a picture needs to bring their own camera.

The Cup is a few weeks away from going back to the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto.

The Hawks’ regular season home opener is October 1 against the Washington Capitals.
