My Day at the Parade/Rally:

It was the best and worst of times.
That is the only way to describe it.
There was amazing Hawks fans and then there were obnoxious tools.
There was a flying beach ball and then there were flying beer cans.
There was the perfect spot and then there was the mob.
There was confetti in the air and then there was weed in the air.
The photos explain:

  1. I have a confession to make...

    I was happy to see you managed to get pictures of at least 2 of the Black Aces... and the 2 you did get are my 2 favourites. =D

  2. Oh and it's almost weird to see the players without the beards, especially Sharpie. He looked so good with it, I miss it.

  3. Why did people get arrested? What mob? I have no idea what's up with that. Explain. :D

  4. During the parade everyone had to stay behind the fences, so the parade could go through. After the parade ended, the people far back pushed through the fences and the cops couldn't control them. It turned into complete chaos, it was just hundreds and hundreds of people pushing through. And that's the mob. People got arrested while they were pushing through, I'm not sure why exactly.
