Monday, June 15, 2015, the Blackhawks won the Stanley Cup in the final game against the Tampa Lightning. Chicago celebrated in the Wrigleyville neighborhood on the corner of Clark and Addison. People high-fived each other as they took over the street. Men started popping champagne in succession as others drew into a mosh pit and girls started crowd surfing. Onlookers stood by the Cubs stadium sign to escape the rain, while others threw their hands and their umbrellas in the air and embraced the madness.
