Picture Of The Day: Welcoming The Cup With A Water Cannon Salute

It has been 49 years since the Stanley Cup last arrived in Chicago, so when the plane carrying the Cup touched down at O’Hare International Airport at 3:55 am local time this morning in the Windy City, it was greeted in a rather dramatic fashion.

Awaiting Jonathan Toews, Patrick Kane, Duncan Keith, and the rest of the Blackhawks’ players along the runway was a water cannon salute.  An Awkward way to celebrate their NHL championship?  Perhaps, but surely not as awkward as the scene on the ice after Kane’s game-winning goal in overtime.
