I'm not much of a selfie person, but even I'm going to clog up traffic for that one.

Smart.  That's one way to avoid the TSA groping.

Just like the guy in 1961.

er 62.

During the 1962 playoffs, the Cup sat on display in a huge glass case in the Chicago Stadium lobby. A Montreal fan, Ken Kilander, was upset with the Stanley Cup being in Chicago. He opened the glass case and when no alarms went off, reached in and grabbed the Cup off its stand. Kilander crept through the stadium lobby and headed for the exit doors. He was just a few yards from the exit when a police officer spotted Kilander and asked him why he was taking the Stanley Cup out of Chicago Stadium. "I want to take it back where it belongs," Kilander explained, "To Montreal."

he current Cup was almost stolen again in 1977, but a keen-eyed Hall of Fame employee thwarted the attempt. Seven men were spotted near the Cup with a large gym bag. When approached, they dashed outside. In their car, police found a series of photos detailing the Hall's floor plan and the necessary equipment to pull off the heist.

15 years ago, I rode that line every weekday in and out of NYC. All I can say is that is the nicest and cleanest Metro North train car I've ever seen. That line is the one all the rich people take in and out of the city to their homes in Greenwich and Stamford, so it always had slightly better cars than the other two lines. It must have been a brand new car they brought in special for the photo op.

Having touched the Cup myself and spent over an hour up close with it, it absolutely reeks of history. Yes, I know the bowl isnt the original, and the stack has changed throughout the years, but it still is an amazing trophy and historical piece. I remember as a kid reading about how they X'ed out Basil Pocklington, but actually seeing that on the list with the 84 Oilers gave me goosebumps. Funny stuff.

That is one of the cars purchased a few years ago that replaced the cars from the 70s, which were still in service until about 2011.

Stamford, eh?  So it was either going on Maury Povich to prove it was NOT Ovechkin's father, or WWE has merged with the NHL.
