Stanley Cup

Anyone who knows me can tell I’m not a sports fanatic. When Skip brought up getting a 10 pack to the Avalanche, Denver’s professional hockey team, I wasn’t sure if I could hang for that many games. However, it has been an awesome experience. We got tickets with two other couples, meaning we have a pre-planned, fun outing throughout the winter months, and the Avs are doing pretty good so the games are very lively.

As season ticket holders we had the opportunity to visit the Stanley Cup on a private night. It is the only trophy that a winning team doesn’t get to keep. Every year the names of the entire winning team’s roster is hand-etched on the silver plates. The top cup part had a team name from 1903. We couldn’t lift it up — or drink a beer out of it — but we could give it a hug!
