Celebrating Blackhawks Stanley Cup in Streets of Chicago (Video)


So this is how the cliche “they’re dancing in the streets”originated. Or perhaps you prefer the even more shopworn “with thousands of your closest friends.”

I told my friends watching the game with me Wednesday night, ever see “Gangs of New York?” Remember when Leo DiCaprio tells Cameron Diaz, the night before the riot: “get ready, this town’s gonna burn.” I had that feeling after Patrick Kane scored a goal that no one realized was a goal, to clinch the Stanley Cup for the Blackhawks and the city of Chicago.

As much as I enjoyed this Blackhawks season, and the fact that they took care of business tonight, the most profound lesson I took away from this is…I’m definitely not a kid anymore.
