Every member of the Stanley Cup winning team gets to spend a day with hockey's ultimate prize, and if the 35-pound trophy could talk, it would probably have some amazing stories (and some forgettable ones -- like the time Kris Draper's kid "pooped in it"). On Sunday morning there was a concern that the Cup was actually lost in Boston before it could be handed off to Bruins forward Nathan Horton.

Horton was supposed to pick up the Cup in Buffalo and take it to Dunnville, Ontario for a parade, only to have it not arrive on time.

From there, Horton's wife, model Tammy Plante-Horton, went to the Twitter machine and announced that the cup was lost, before later following it by saying the "cup guy" was late to his flight and didn't get it on the plane on time.

Horton eventually arrived at the celebration in Ontario according to Kevin McGran of the Toronto Star, but without the Cup. So, no, the Stanley Cup was not lost, it was simply late in arriving, which seems like it will shorton the amount of time Horton will get to spend with it.

In the end, it kind of make that Discover Card commercial seem a little more realistic, doesn't it?

Nathan Horton's Stanley Cup delay

I'll be honest... I'd love to have a book come out of the wildest trophy stories... or maybe a book with sections for heart felt, crazy, disgusting, and just plain unique.  I wonder.. does the trophy guy spend the entire time w/ it... before getting on his flight... maybe that person would have the ability to tell the stories?
