One of the greatest things about the Stanley Cup is that it actually gets to travel around for a day with the winning hockey players and meet up with fans in their hometowns. The trials and tribulations of Lord Stanley’s chalice are long and much-documented. Children have been baptized from it. Dogs have eaten from it. And barrels of booze have spilled from its sacred bowl.

With the relatively new tradition of each winning player spending a day with the Cup, the odds of damage, dings and misadventure have increased. Which brings us to Michael Ryder.

Before heading off to his hometown of Bonavista, the Newfoundland native took some time to show off the Cup at a St. John’s hotel — where the wind promptly blew the Cup over and putting a big dent in the side!!!! 

 

I guess it looks more hockey MEAN now!
