There’s a tradition among NHL championship teams. They get the Stanley Cup, then they pass it around. We’ll get to more of that in a moment.
The cup itself is an unusual trophy in that, there’s only one. A team doesn’t win a replica of the cup. They get the actual cup, which has been around since 1893. Every player on the winning team gets possession of the cup for a brief time during the NHL off season. What they do with the cup is up to them. Many of them drink out of it. Which brings us to Carrie Underwood.
Despite having a brand new CD coming out on Tuesday, Carrie told KNCI’s Pat and Tom that she’s actually more nervous about the NHL playoffs right now. That’s because her husband Mike Fisher plays for the Nashville Predators, who recently went onto the 2nd round of the Stanley Cup playoffs.
Carrie says she’d love to see Mike earn a championship, noting that he’s been a player for a long time and worked hard to help get his team this far. So, if he won and got the chance to personally bring the trophy into their home, would Carrie go so far as to partake in the championship tradition of a champion… sip… from the cup itself?
