One of the great things about the Stanley Cup is the fact that men in regal white gloves carefully carry the thing out onto the ice for the champions to celebrate with, only for those same champions to spend the next few months drinking champagne, beer, and whatever the hell they want out of it. It’s theirs to do whatever they want with it during their allotted timeslot.
The Pittsburgh Penguins brought the cup back home on Monday and almost immediately went straight to owner Mario Lemieux’s place for a little pool party celebration. All the players’ wives and girlfriends were there enjoying themselves and drinking out of the cup — like you’re supposed to do.
Looked like an okay time..
