The NHL has the best championship tradition in sports. Each player, coach, and other members of the championship winning team are allowed to divide 100 days with the Stanley Cup.
Lord Stanley’s Cup is usually passed around for members to share with their family and friends, but there have been a good number of adventures. The Cup once went for a swim at the bottom of Mario Lemieux’s pool, and served as a flower pot in an old lady’s house.
Kris Draper of the Detroit Red Wings is having his time with the Stanley Cup, and let’s hope he keeps it away from his newborn daughter Kamryn. Her first contact with the Cup ended in a diaperless disaster.
“A week after we won it, I had my newborn daughter in there and she pooped in the Cup,” said Draper. “That was something. We had a pretty good laugh.
Considering how the NHL players like to party with the Stanley Cup this probably isn’t the first time this has happened. Either way, Kris Draper explains why we shouldn’t be shocked if the Detroit Red Wings are hit with a sudden case of Salmonella or E. coli.
“It was, well, clean it out. I still drank out of it that night, so no worries.”
The only question that can be asked is did he get shitfaced?
