Spits Players Excited For Championship Parade

The Windsor Spitfires are looking forward to tonight's parade.

It begins at 6pm on Ouellette Ave. between Wyandotte St. and the riverfront.

Spits forward Luke Boka says winning the Memorial Cup still hasn't sunk in.

"It's still pretty hard to take it winning a championship," says Boka.  "Never won anything in my life so flying pretty high up there right now.  I don't think I'm coming down."

Boka adds he's pumped for the parade.

"I've never experienced anything like that.  I remember when the Red Wings won a few times I was able to go to those parades and they were pretty cool.  It's going to be fun being a big part of the parade this time."

Spits captain Jeremiah Addison says he can't wait to celebrate the win with the fans.

"They've been great all year" says Addison.  "They were great after we won.  They were great just people congratulating me at the gas station, all different stops so you know what they've been awesome all year and I'm just excited to celebrate this with them."

Following the parade there will be speeches and autographs at Festival Plaza.
