Not really-joking-- but they deserve it.  Only  ONE  of the hundreds  of Chicagoans  I have asked  had a vague  idea  why its named O'Hare. Sure u knowJoe.

I think it's pretty typical of USA now, that there are millions of airheads walking around now, who (as the old saying goes) "don't know their arse from a hole in the ground) (or subsiding former swampland, in this case!   Cheesy

I don't think the average IQ of Chicagoans is any lower than that of any other major US city.  But, probably 95% of them are lower than most of the Inuits in Nunavut.

Based on what I've seen during my lifetime, I'd say there are a LOT more dolts walking around now than when I was young (and that's not just because there are more people alive now!   Cry

Named after WWII US army Air Corps flying ace, Butch O'Hare.  It used to be called Orchard Field during WWII, because that area was previously filled with apple orchards.  Unusual name for an important place.  Usually, important places are named after controversial political figures in Chicagoland.  Just like Boston, New York, Philadelphia, and New Jersey, a high proportion of the most powerful political figures in their histories were far from behaving like angels.

Binnington stood on his head, the rest of Chicago played hard, Rask was shakey and the Bruins first line (Bergeron, Marchand, Pastrnak) were basically MIA. I thought that only McAvoy and Krug played hard, but the supporting cast was deficient. All in all, a good game, the refs put the whistles away and the action was good, but not great.

Congratulations to the St. Louis Blues!

The Blues get o respect.  They FINALLY win The Stanley Cup, and people forget in which city they are located!!!  St. Louis...... Chicago.... if it's not New York, Boston, Philadelphia, or Washington, it must be one of those Midwestern cities you fly over to get to L.A., San Francisco or Las Vegas (or Hawaii)!

I think it's become more or less common. I seem to remember when The Kings won a few years back that the cup was brought to a Redondo Beach restaurant/bar frequented by Kings players and fans (avec poutine).

Congrats to the Blues. Having seen the immediate impact last year of winning the Cup on a non-hockey town like Washington, St. Louis fans and natives are in for a treat!

Huge downtown parade, The Washington Post reported every day on which player, trainer, asst coach, etc. had the Cup for that day! Is that a tradition, i.e., a member of the team given personal access to the Cup for a day or two? That lasted for MONTHS!

For the first 15 minutes or so, the Bruins were dominant. But Binnington was very sharp. I guess good goaltending beats good pitching.  Grin

Somewhere, the likes of Plante, Hall, Moore, Arbour et al are smiling.
