The Captain And The Cup

from Scott Burnside of ESPN,

You watch Dustin Brown, his wife Nicole, his children and friends eating frozen yogurt out of the Stanley Cup and you might think, well, that’s quaint, but in the end it’s just a big tin mug, right?

What’s the big deal?


We are here to tell you that whether it is full of frozen yogurt or beer or sporting a fireman’s helmet, as it was earlier on this late July Saturday in Brown’s hometown of Ithaca, N.Y., there remains something far more mystical about the Stanley Cup’s presence than just a familiar piece of hardware easily recognizable from television.

In something like 16 hours, this well-traveled symbol of hockey’s greatest accomplishment will play a central role in reminding us of the power of friendship, the strength of family and the ability to forge something positive from unspeakable tragedy.
