Where Is The Stanley Cup – Part 5 – Massachusetts
When we last saw the Stanley Cup, it was in Whitefish, Montana with Doug Houda, Boston Bruin assistant coach. From the wilds and mountains of Whitefish, it travelled across the USA back to Massachusetts to spend the day with Assistant Coach Geoff Ward, who then handed it off to Assistant General Manager, Don Sweeney.
Geoff Ward took the cup golfing at the Butter Brook Golf Club in Westford, MA. The Cup appeared to be enjoying the round, but had to cut it short to visit Geoff’s daughter at her gymnastics club. From there it was off to some more exciting action at Waxy O’Connor’s Irish Pub in Lexington, MA. There appears to be a definite pattern with the cup and pubs developing here. There is no video that I have found of this pub crawl. I did, however, find this video taken a couple of days prior at the Massachusetts General Hospital Of all the major sports, there is nothing that can come close to the magic of the Stanley Cup, or as accessible.
Following Geoff is Don Sweeney’s day with the cup. Don is a life long Bruin, playing with them after being drafted in 1984. His day with the cup was quiet in comparison with most and, after visiting Don’s friend Jack Kirrane, it was off to a friend’s place of business for the staff to enjoy and then to a house party. Like I said, very quiet day for the Cup.
