From the NHL comes this news today. Not only does the “Kid” have his own replica Stanley Cup ring, he also has the love of the NHL:
Singer and songwriter Kid Rock is NHL.com’s “Artist of the Month” for November. NHL.com, the official web site of the National Hockey League and the leading online community for hockey fans, will feature a Q&A, photos, articles and give fans the opportunity to stream tracks and videos from the Detroit native’s latest album, Rock N Roll Jesus, which recently debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 albums chart.
In addition, NHL.com fans will be able to post comments and interact with the three-time Grammy nominee here.
From David Shoalts blog post at the Globe & Mail,
News that Kid Rock was given a Stanley Cup ring by Carolina Hurricanes owner Pete Karmanos, a fellow Detroit native, set off some discussion in the hockey world today.
On The Fan 590 in Toronto, John Garrett was appalled and rightly so that some pop star would get an exact replica of the ring given to the players when they won the 2006 Cup just because he’s a buddy of the owner. The Sportsnet commentator said his daughter got a ring when she was a staffer for the Tampa Bay Lightning when they won in 2004, but it was a much simpler model than the one given to the players.
“You think of all the former players and the sweat they put in trying to win a ring,” Garrett said. “The ring has to stand for something.”
