Lord Stanley would be so proud

Better check your tongue for diaper

When it comes to the partying and wild behavior, the Stanley Cup has seen more than its fair share. In fact, if you tested the Cup right now, the metal would probably consist of about 75 percent alcohol and 15 percent body fluids from hookers. The last 10 percent, well, the Red Wings Kris Draper is going to have to explain that one.

Red Wings forward Kris Draper revealed during the weekend that his diaperless baby, Kamryn, did a number on the Cup last month. A number two, to be exact.

“A week after we won it, I had my newborn daughter in there, and she pooped in the Cup,” Draper said. “That was something. We had a pretty good laugh.

“I still drank out of it that night, so no worries.”

You still drank out of it!! Dude, that’s sick! Not even this guy would put that thing near his lips after a baby dropped a deucer in it.

What would you do with the Stanley Cup?

Lord Stanley’s Cup is without question the most awesome trophy in all of sports. (And if you think otherwise, we say good day, sir.) We love the stories of players bathing their kids and drinking beer out of it. Well, here’s your chance to have the Stanley Cup in your home delivered personally by Mark Messier.

Of sports promotions, this is a pretty damn cool one. Unfortunately, it’s only available to the fine folks north of us. Hockey Night in Canada is asking for video entries from hockey fans telling them how you watch the playoffs and asking them to show off their hockey shrine.

The Grand Prize is having the Stanley Cup delivered by Messier for a party at your home during the playoffs. The winner also gets a custom hockey shrine in their home created by the Hockey Night in Canada set designers. Pretty cool, eh?

We would love to enter this contest but unfortunately, 1) we don’t live in Canada, and 2) flipping through the Versus broadcast on the way to the NBA playoffs doesn’t qualify. We joke. We joke. Hockey playoffs are awesome. We’ll definitely be tuning in for that eventual Buffalo-Ottawa matchup.

Carolina Hurricanes

Congratulations Carolina Hurricanes!

After a surprisingly tight end to the series, the Hurricanes have come out on top of the hockey world.  Their speed, toughness, and heart won the Hurricanes the first Stanley Cup in the New NHL.  (Of course, speed, toughness and heart always won in the old NHL as well.)   Edmonton almost pulled off the impossible but in the end, too much home ice, too much of a grind to fight back from being down 3-1, and too much Cam Ward sealed their fate.
