Ducks take an early lead in the Battle of California


If any Duck fans are interested, I will be at the Fan Celebration tomorrow outside Honda Center. As usual, look for a lucky green shirt in the sea of black and orange, or come find me at Danny K’s before the event.

Fellow blogger Jes Gőlbez seems critical that Anaheim will not be having a (traditional?) parade instead, but I have two questions:
a) As a person who’s been to parades before, why exactly would a pass-me-by parade be preferable than a single-location celebration?

b) Seeing as this is the first cup win for the west coast in 80+ years, what "tradition" are we really talking about anyway?
Maybe Jes can convince me with some glorious tales of the 1925 Victoria Cougars parade.
