Careful With That Cup

From the AP via the Globe & Mail:

The Stanley Cup is okay after taking a tumble during the Red Wings’ celebrations in Detroit.

NHL spokeswoman Bernadette Mansur says Saturday the Cup got a “slight dent” Friday after some players took the trophy to Cheli’s Chili Bar, a downtown restaurant owned by Red Wings defenseman Chris Chelios.

Mansur says a keeper of the Cup traveling with the trophy was able to smooth out the dent.

Update 2:18pm ET: A further comment from CBC.ca,

Over its history, the cup has been subjected to a number of indignities. There are actually three of them — the original bowl, the “presentation model” and the “replica” version that is used at the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto when the presentation model is out partying.

The cup has been accidentally left on a street corner, pooped in by an excited infant, used as a doggie bowl by two players’ canines and dropped numerous times.
