The tradition of dyeing the Chicago River green for St. Patrick’s Day is a pretty good one as far as color- and aquatic-based traditions go. In addition to a cool visual, it provides revelers with a reason to start drinking earlier in the morning than usual. The same idea is being employed in the city today after the Cubs captured the franchise’s first World Series since 1908.
The difference is that this time the water’s being dyed blue.
With the team’s championship parade beginning soon, this promises to be an epic day. Thoughts and prayers to my good friends on the police scanner beat. The content promises to be rich and plentiful.
