This is awesome

Of all the traditions in sports, I don't think there's one cooler than the (relatively recent) tradition of everyone on the NHL champions (woohoo, Bruins) getting a day to spend with the Stanley Cup. As a result of that tradition, the Cup has been some crazy places (like the bottom of Mario Lemieux's pool) and done some crazy things (like serving as a baptismal font).

It's been a few decades since Boston's had the pleasure of enjoying the Cup, so you can probably expect it to have an eventful couple of months. Well, let the summer of Cup idiocy begin. Yesterday, after a speculative tweet from the Shrewsbury, MA Fire Department, the Cup (and its handlers) decided it should spend the day as a fireman. Brilliant.
