Originally posted by Big BadRe: the Stanley Cup. It's the most important TROPHY in sports, since as it was mentioned earlier in the thread, other sports are all about 'the ring' as the symbol of victory. There's no better celebration in sports than seeing the members of the Cup-winning team do laps around the rink holding aloft. The other sports don't quite hold up. NFL: Reggie White running around the field holding the trophy after Green Bay wins in 1996.
You should've been at Lambeau Field when they brought it back to 60,000 cheeseheads who'd been there for 3 hours (in the COLD, mind you), waiting to see it. It was the only time I ever cried at Lambeau.
Star wipe, and...we're out. Thrillin' ain't easy.
