The Cubs won!
The horns before the parade.
Cheers rippling through the crowd...
in eager anticipation.
And then the trophy,
like Caesar returning...
There were five million of us. It was the 7th largest gathering of people in world history.
Shall we celebrate?
Or maybe I should say something witty about it could have gone either way...
After all, the city is Chicago.
And they hadn't won a pennant there in a while.
So when they did, the crowd was ready for a party.
The cops were ready for a riot.
Travellers from afar?
Or colourful locals?
Best not to say what was on their minds.
I never did make it to the park.
But I got my pictures.
And you better believe who I was rooting for.
The 2016 Cubs Victory Parade in Chicago.
I finally got around to posting my pics after the opening day for the 2017 season.
Shall we do it again?
Or perhaps, next up, the Blackhawks will win the Superbowl... or whatever that Stanley Cup thing is called.
