Kings fans, what would you do with the Stanley Cup for a day?
This post has been changed. Please see note below.
Since they defeated the New Jersey Devils on Monday and clinched their first championship, the Los Angeles Kings have begun making the rounds with the Stanley Cup.
Traditionally, each member of the team spends a day with the Cup, and in the past, teams have taken the iconic trophy everywhere from baptisms to strip clubs.
So far, the Kings have taken the cup through their favorite bar in Hermosa Beach, on Jay Leno and Jimmy Kimmel’s late-night talk shows, and to team captain Dustin Brown’s backyard, where it served as a giant goblet of chocolate milk for his Spiderman-clad sons.
The Kings and their cup are set to appear at Dodger Stadium on Wednesday night before the game between the Angels and Dodgers. Tickets to the Kings's "championship rally" Thursday are sold out. The parade is free and open to the public.
"My 3-yr-old said if he were on the #LAKings he'd take the #StanleyCup to @Disneyland + spin it around inside the Mad Hatter's teacups," a fan named Elizabeth Jenkins tweeted.
[For the record, 3:40 p.m.: An earlier version of this post incorrectly stated that tickets to the Kings' rally and parade were sold out. The rally is sold out, but the parade is free and open to the public.]
