Power of the Stanley Cup

From Bob Wojnowski at the Detroit News,

The Stanley Cup does strange and wonderful things. It causes players to throw their battered bodies in front of whizzing pucks. It causes them to grow crazy beards and ignore painful injuries and continue battling for nearly two months.

It causes upward of a million people to line a storied street in downtown Detroit, in searing heat and brutal times, and cheer for the athletes who earned the right to lift it. It causes grown men—players and fans alike—to weep at the sight of it.

The Cup can stir and bind and wow. And perhaps, when necessary, it even can heal.

A KK reader kindly passed this article onto me, correctly noting that I might have missed it when it first came out Tuesday. Even a couple days late, it’s well worth a read.
