Doesn't matter. When the cup was downtown LV years ago I got some pictures with it. Fake cup or real doesn't matter. The point is the Pittsburgh Penguins won it the last two years in a row and that Russian on the Capitals can't even make the final!! I find it hard to believe in this fake world that is basically all lies that they would allow the real cup to travel around and let players bathe babies in it and throw it in swimming pools. Most likely someone stole the original cup long ago and sold it to some private collector but once again the real issue is that the Penguins are the champs again and that isn't going to change no matter what!!
The Cup that travels is very real and is cared for by one person, Phil Pritchard, since 1988. He is always with the cup when it is not at the Hockey Hall of Fame and is one very famous Canadian. And yes, you can drink from it, swim with it, and party with it, provided that you won the cup.
So we are driving up banksville Rd which is a 4 lane business district. My wife yells at me and points saying look that person has the stanley cup. They were walking out of Betos pizza. I did a quick u turn and flew to them. He was putting the cup in the front seat of his Bentley convertible so we just missed it. I decided to follow him, well him and an SUV which I presume was the cup keeper. I followed him for about 15 minutes until they were going to a high traffic area and I didn't want to get stuck in th traffic since we actually had somewhere to be.
I couldn't see who had the cup though so know I gotta figure that out. Fun times in a city with a stanley cup.
I wonder what the odds of actually driving by a random place and passing it within the 20 seconds it took to walk from door to car to see the cup.
At first my wife didnt think it was the cup because the person put it into their front seat. She figured it would be in the case and in the trunk. I confirmed it was the real one on betos pizza instagram.
