Chicago has planned a ticker tape parade for Friday or Monday, depending on when the Blackhawks clinch the Stanley Cup, according to WGN.

As WGN pointed out, "Notice there's no wiggle room here, Hawk fans expect the team to bring home the Stanley Cup, something they haven't done since 1961."

"If the Hawks win in Game 6 tonight, expect a Friday celebration. Should the Hawks lose tonight and win Friday, the city will have its celebration Monday."

There is, of course, the small matter of winning the thing first.

Time and place have not been released yet, but as any Eagles fan knows, leaking the parade details before the result is locked up is not a good thing. Plans for Philadelphia's parade for the Eagles leaked before the Super Bowl against the Patriots, and we know how that turned out.
