The Spokane Chiefs won the Canadian Hockey League championship yesterday, destroying the Kitchener Rangers, 4-1.
But they didn’t stop there. They celebrated by snapping their league’s championship cup from its base.
The incident was obviously accidental, which makes it so hilarious. Here’s the video, thanks to Avoid The Clap, Jimmy Dugan of DEADSPIN fame:
Yeah, I’m sure just skating around with the ass-end of that trophy didn’t take some of the joy out of that win. Relax, fellas. The champagne will get you just as drunk, and the groupies will be just as eager. And that was an ugly trophy anyway. You really did the hockey world a service by putting it out of its misery.
