24th place
Chicago Blackhawk right winger Patrick Kane hoists the Stanley Cup over his head so the frenzied crowd of 2 million Chicagoans can get a better look. Mounted police escort in tow, Cup-clinching Kane served as both the exclamation point of the Blackhawk's championship season and the parade itself. The sheer density and energy of the crowd was so spectacular that the El operator slowed his train to a crawl to extend the moment by a few precious seconds.
