Red Wings Stanley Cup Parade
Took the day off Friday to go celebrate the Cup and it was awesome. The wife and I went and got our T-Shirts, lathered up in sunscreen and went to D-Town. Here is a little video of Nick holding the cup. The gathering at Heart Plaza was awesome. I’ll never forget when Kawame took the stage and people booed so loud that you couldn’t hear a thing he said. Other than that everyone looked to be enjoying themselves despite the 90° weather.
We had a great time and even got to hang out a Cheli’s Chili Bar with Chris Chelios and Chris Osgood…oh and the Stanley Cup! Those guys were so awesome. The thing that impressed me the most about this team is they are so into the fans. Everyone I saw and met that day were very patient and appreciative of their fan’s admiration. Every player was accessible to any fan who wanted to wait their turn to speak to them. It was great. Here are a few pictures from the parade.
