Sometimes...not very often, but sometimes, sports is pretty damn good.

happy for Ovechkin and the Caps. Even though they weren't my team over the last year, it was still tough watching them go out the same way in the same round to the same team more than once. I know this has to be great for them.
That TJ thing man, thats just tough..so bittersweet to see moments like that. I do hope his dad does remember this one.

And way to follow up a serious tearjerker moment with a boobie post norm lol

Yeah, the timing wasn't the greatest but I couldn't resist posting it haha.

Here, a history lesson on the Stanley Cup. As most of you are aware, the names of players/staff/etc. on the winning team are engraved on the Cup every year. However, to keep the trophy from becoming a gigantic tower (imagine players trying to lift that sucker while skating around the ice), once a new ring is added the oldest ring is removed from the top and permanently stored in the Hockey Hall of Fame. Well, some amazing players are about to come off of that Cup.

It's kinda sad to see the names coming off.
I love informing people about how special the Stanley Cup really is in that you get your name engraved on the hardware, immortality, unified with your brethren, each player getting the Cup for a day and that no other major sport offers that level of commitment to the player

Definitely bittersweet to see those names come off. Another thing I love about that trophy and the presentation: it's the players that get the Cup handed to them first. Might be a minor thing compared to the other sports, but I really like that.

Most certainly. It's the only sport that truly created and honored its traditions

Like you mentioned, every player gets the Cup for a day or two...still think this is part of the team celebrations going on through the weekend, but if this is any indication the Caps are going to have a ton of fun this summer, Ovi's gonna be hammered a good portion of it, and I'm cool with all of it.  8)

I just cannot grasp the elation of winning the Cup. Winning any championship is difficult, but the brutality and length of the playoffs and heartbreak year after year and to finally win...man, thats a high Id never come down from I don't think.
