    Please please show parade on WGN America. I have been a fan of the HAWKS since I was little. (A LONG TIME AGO). It is where my husband of 33 years had our first date. At a BLACKHAWK game. I still have the ticket stub!!! And now that they have won the STANLEY CUP, and I live in TEXAS I am not going to be able to celebrate the win. PLEASE PLEASE SHOW ON WGN AMERICA!!!!
