The New Ice Age
Transcript of The New Ice Age
quickly became the prime objective of all Canadian
hockey teams. It is an ungainly hunk of silverware made of up of a bowl, a replica of the mug from Lord Stanley of Preston the Governor General of Canada, who purchased it for $50 then donated it to the hockey champions of the Dominion in 1893. The collar of the trophy commemorates every person who can lay claim to the cup, 1600 names in all. This trophy is awarded annually to the NHL champion after a best of seven Stanley Cup Championship Series. What is the Stanley Cup? The trophy is delivered to each member of the winning team in turn by its handlers from the Hockey Hall of Fame. It is removed from the special casket in which it travels. After that it is up to the player where the cup goes. More than just a trophy Throughout the decades there have been many famous Stanley Cup games which are fondly remembered world-wide. To many Canadians the Stanley Cup is more than a trophy. It has come to symbolize the pure, perfect mesh of culture and sport. It's not just a prize but an icon. For a player, to touch this beloved trophy is to touch the entire history of the game, to put one's hand where Howie Morenz put his, to feel what Gordie Howe felt, or Rocket Richard, or Wayne Gretzky, to be connected to childhood fantasy, every dream dreamed at dawn on the way to the local rink. The cup has been fondled and kissed and filled with beer. It has served as a cradle for babies, a vase for flowers, and an ornament on many a bar. It has been a passenger in trains, planes, automobiles, and boats. It was once drop-kicked into the Rideau Canal. What could be more fulfilling then to take the Cup back to the place where you played your childhood hockey, back to family and friends and the people who watched you learn the sport! Each member of the winning team takes a turn doing just that.
