    Wow! What a finish! I honestly didn't know if/when I'd ever see Chicago in a Stanley Cup, ever again. 49 years is an eternity! Great series and one of the best-played by the 2 teams that I can remember.


    I saw dumbo Joe Biden in his Flyers garb the other night...wonder how long it will take Obama to figure out a Chicago team won something & try to muckle onto the PR?

    Can't get any better than this! (maybe the Cubs though but that's a lost cause) I cannot wait to head down to the city for the parade on Friday!

    Before you go, Trapps, drop your pal Obama an email and let him know they have a Hockey team in Chi...(he probably still thinks all the fuss is about the Blago trial).

    Oh he's well aware. When the Hawks were up 2-0 in the series he was speaking in Pittsburg and told everyone he was just happy to be on that side of the state.

    2 of the original 6 NHL teams, and hard to believe neither of them had won Lord Stanley's Cup in over 30 years.

    Flyers are an expansion team.

    I just watched the parade go by on Washington and the last bus had one of the Hawks hoisting the Stanley Cup over his head. What a crowd is down here now.

    Patrick, it was either Kane or Toews holding up the cup. WGN says there's at least 350,000 down here right now!

    People were leaving the area because it is so crowded that they could not get near the area where they are holding the rally.

    Scratch that 350,000 number. Turns out it was a cool 2 million that showed up.

    Congrats to the Black Hawks for a Stanley Cup win! Been a long time coming and I know a lot of Hawks fans who are busting their buttons now. Dan

    I was hoping that they wouldn't win because that is Obama's home area but after I heard that they hadn't won it for 40+ years I had to change my mind. Glad they won.

    I've heard nothing to indicate Obama even knows about it.
