Where's Stanley?

Pictures that you probably shouldn't show your wife...

Not exactly what I would do on my day with the Cup. But, there's nothing wrong with that, if that's what you're into.

As I'm sure you are all aware, as per tradition, the Stanley Cup makes it's way around North America (and other places) during the summer. During this time, everyone in the winning organization and their dog gets to have a day with the it. Just like any drunken teenager, the Cup can be hard to keep track of. It's tough to always keep tabs on the darn thing, as it goes missing every couple of months.

To try and pass some time between now and the start of the season in October, I'll be randomly posting some blurbs about the Cup's summer travels. Hopefully next time, that doesn't mean pictures of scantily clad men. Heck, maybe it'll even help to keep the NHL from losing the Cup.

Last Friday, was Teemu Selanne's day with the cup. He had some, uh, interesting choices about what to do with it (see above). The Hockey Hall of Fame is all over it, as they were alongside Selanne for the day, and have written a pretty detailed report about it.

In a great move, the Ducks took the Cup to Camp Pendleton Marine Corps Base in San Diego on Monday. Gotta show love for the troops!

In what can only described as some of the oddest looking cross-promotion that I've ever seen, the Cup made it's way to Angel Stadium in Anaheim Los Angeles, California. Angel Stadium is home to Major League Baseball's Anaheim Los Angeles Angels. Dustin Penner, Chris Kunitz, Brad May, Chris Pronger and Ryan Getzlaf were on hand prior Los Angeles' game against the Houston Astros. It might just be me, but there's something awfully odd about seeing the Cup on a grass field (not to mention people wearing Ducks jerseys and Angels hats). Brad May, of all people, threw out the first pitch.
