THE RALLY When President Barack Obama was elected in 2008, he held a rally in Grant Park that drew about 250,000 people. After the Chicago Blackhawks won the Stanley Cup in 2013, nearly 2 million people attended the victory parade and rally. The city expects the crowd for the Cubs celebration to be even larger. Late Friday morning, the Office of Emergency Management and Communication estimated 5 million people attended the parade and rally.
The NJ Devils let Martin Brodeur announce the drafting of his son Anthony. The kid tried to shake his dad's hand as he handed him his jersey but Martin grabbed his son's face and pulled him into a big ol bear hug. I almost cried.
