Stanley Cup

In Cole Harbour…Tomorrow

Hi Hockey Fans:

Tomorrow, the Stanley Cup will be in my Hometown along with Sidney Crosby…


The occasion will coincide with Sydney’s 22nd birthday…


I have to arrange to go down to the end of the street and lineup somewhere on the strip and maybe run over to the rink (Cole Harbour Place) where the parade will finish…


This is the second time the Stanley Cup has been here…

The local Die-Hard Hockey Fans are seeing this as somewhat of a letdown…
When the Cup was here the last time with Joe Dipenta, the hockey media overlooked it’s importance and only the local news carried the Day…

I see it as a Big Day for Hockey Buffs and all Canucks, to see the Stanley Cup, here, in my Neighbourhood…



Bill…

the Stanley Cup is never a let down! Even when the Wings don’t win it! :)

I went down to the end of the street to the strip and waited for Sydney to come by…
I had a good vantage point for some photos, or, I thought so…
By the time he came by I had my place taken…
Anyway, when he went by he turned his head and looked to the other side of the road…



Here’s a link to some photos I took of the occasion…

Today, was as big a TO-DO as I’ve seen in my Hometown… I thought about going over to the rink (Cole Harbour Place)… Then I decided I would be better off in I just went up the street and went home…

Today, was one beautiful day, here…

Bill…

I always wondered… do they keep octopi in the Stanley Cup? We don’t get much hockey down here in the south… :laugh:

D

No, Bettman made up some sort of rule against octopi.
No my favorite league commissioner…

Cool pics Bill!

It’s really just a big beer mug… :laugh:

All I can see is money spilling from it…
BUT…
I like the Hockey that it represents…
I couldn’t figure out who the other player was that come here with him… It’s number 25…
I think…
Is his name Talbot…
????

Anyway, the media covered the event so well…
There were Hockey Fans here from all over North America…
but…
mainly from right here in the Maritimes and especially here in our Hometown…
I think he was truly proud to show the Stanley Cup to his Hometown Crowd…


It’s a shame that my heart wasn’t fully in it…
