Kukla's Korner Hockey

Imagine this: You stop into your local Burger King for a quick breakfast on your way to work. Out of the corner of your eye, you see something big and silver sitting on one of the tables. You think to yourself, "It couldn't be ... could it? Is it? Is that the Stanley Cup? Here?!" A quick glance at the table reveals that it is, in fact, the Stanley Cup, sitting among eight local seniors. Of course, nearby the Cup sat Phil Pritchard, one of three "Keepers of the Cup" who travel all over the world escorting the trophy wherever it goes. On this day, Pritchard took the Cup to 90-year-old Dutch Hiller, of Montrose, Calif. "That's the neat thing about the Cup," Pritchard said. "You never know where it's going to be. There's a different story going on all the time, but that's what makes the tradition what it is, which is pretty cool."
