As a kid who grew up playing street hockey, pretending I was either Wayne Gretzky, Paul Coffee, or sometimes even Grant Fuhr, you can imagine my excitement when I heard that the Stanley Cup was coming to Vancouver (of all places)!
The Canadian Holy Grail was brought here as part of a grand (re)opening celebration of a McDonald’s restaurant, where former NHL’ers and events were happening all day long. In the evening, the Stanley Cup was on display for everyone to see, and even have your photo taken with it.
Naturally, I had my photo taken with the cup (the official photographer of the day will be emailing it to me), and was able to grab a few snaps of the cup along with the guy with the coolest job in the world, Mike Bolt – Keeper of the Cup.
