The Cup Is Popular In SoCal

from Jeff Miller of the OC Register,

“It’s like running face-first into a celebrity,” said Mike Bolt, who works for the Hockey Hall of Fame and currently is accompanying the trophy. “This is still the best part of the job — the reactions.”
Some people rejoiced Saturday and others recoiled. Stanley stopped traffic and started paparazzi. He touched many while even more touched him.
The Stanley Cup certainly is a pop star, like Prince. Only taller.
“Dude, I’m standing next to the Cup right now!” Patrick McGaughan shouted into his cell phone. “Dude, I’m touching the Cup right now! This is insane!”
McGaughan, a surfer who lives in Aliso Viejo, came here to check out the waves. He ended up taking a completely different sort of ride.
Stanley was photographed standing atop the lifeguard tower at San Clemente Pier, reclining in a lounge chair on Laguna Beach and riding the carousel at Fashion Island.
