More from the ticker tape parade...

Chicago resident and trusted friend, Nathan Weber, shot the ticker tape parade Friday, June 11, following the Blackhawks victory in the Stanley Cup Finals.

At one point, he was so close to the team he touched the Stanley Cup. Having covered both the parade and the celebration following the victory, he likened the parade to a family event.

"It was peaceful, everyone was civil," Weber said, which is a stark contrast "compared to Wednesday night when there were mobs of drunk and disorderly fans lobbing bottles, raising hell... not quite flipping over cars, but close. It was borderline out of control."

I'm sure most would agree.

Now if we could just get those Cubbies some of the luck the Blackhawks had this season...
