Pens fans all know that this is the true Hockey Town, the City of Champions. The Stanley Cup belongs here and this year it is time to bring Lord Stanley back home. Wouldn’t it be really cool though if we could have the Cup in Pittsburgh for an extra day? A day for the fans?
Discover Card is holding a contest that will let one lucky hockey fan bring the Cup home to their hometown for the day. The theme of the contest is “I deserve to win a day with the Stanley Cup because…” Pittsburgh is home to some of the most die hard, dedicated fans around with some of the quirkiest fans around who have their own “urban legends” attached to them. I have every bit of hope and faith that this is the town that deserves to have the Cup for the day!
Here is a video about last year’s winner:
I know a lot of fans with many inspirational stories about what hockey in this town means to them and stories of what our beloved Penguins have personally done for them. From the Pens visiting children in the hospital to parents who spend all of their time and hard earned money doing all they can so that their kids can play this sport, Pittsburgh fans have what it takes to bring the Cup to Pittsburgh for the day!
We watched our guys have their Day with the Cup back in 1991,1992, and 2009. Maybe it’s time for a fan to have their day after years of dedication and love for the Penguins. I know that I personally would love to pull a Kevin Stevens and enjoy the Cup in my swimming pool!
