I read the post Monday and yes Jack, I was at the rally at Soldier Field. It was a blast. I wa at the parade in 2010 and 2013 but wasn't lucky enough to get into the actual rallies due to a Cubs game in 2010 and too many damn people in 2013. But this year, due to storms in the area, Grant Park was too muddy for 2 million people to stomp around, so free tickets were given away for a rally in Soldier Field, home of the Chicago Bears and site of the 2015 Stadium Series game against the Pittsburgh Penguins.
The tickets were awarded to those with the best of luck. I sat on Ticketmaster for about 15 minutes looking at a "Please Wait" screen. I knew so many people trying to get tickets, but only 2 got some, myself and one of my friends who I went with.
I'll share one picture with you here and if you're even remotely interested you can check out my Instagram (@dbroalexander) where I posted more picture and videos. I haven't put everything I wanted to up yet but there's plenty of #TBT's coming up, about one every week, so keep an eye out. But even once the parade pics are done, I do post quite a few hockey related pictures and designs I whip up, like my "Blackhawks Did The Thing" image from last week.
There wasn't anyone checking your tickets and you could basically walk anywhere in Soldier Field so once the rally got done we all walked down onto the field and played in confetti because we're children. Look how happy I am. Also note, my t shirt has jersey stripes because I'm a geek.
While you're busy looking at how cute I am, you should vote. The COTW Vote ends Friday, as per usual, and the 2 Color Comp. ends Thursday. So. Go. Vote. Now.
Shall we take a gander at some conceptual jersey designs?
Pittsburgh Penguins Alternate Jersey Concept - Lucas D.
Stockton Heat Concept - Scott D.
Saginaw Spirit Concept - Brandon C.
Los Angeles Sharks Concept - WHA Resurrection - Colin M.
Charlotte Hornets NBA-NHL Concept -Taylor R.
Cleveland Cavaliers NBA-NHL Concept - Taylor R.
THIS logo on the shoulders, and used the C logo as a captain's patch, it would be a very clever use of logos and would look great.
Ottawa Senators Concept - Scott G.
Rating: 9/10 and a COTW Nom!
Some really great looking concepts today. I smell some other COTW noms comin' up. Have a great week everyone and enjoy the draft! Also... this got shared while I was writing the post...
