White Sox pass by fans attending Blackhawks parade

CHICAGO -- While on their way to work Friday, a number of White Sox players and coaches had a chance to witness some of the two million fans making their way to Grant Park's Hutchinson Field for the rally serving as the end point of the Blackhawks' celebratory Stanley Cup championship parade.

"That was awesome. It was really neat to drive by and see the excitement in the fans," White Sox reliever Matt Thornton said. "Definitely something you want to be a part of as an athlete at some point in your career."
