Hey BoT fans! I got an email from NBC Sports and wanted to share it with you all! Check this out!
This morning, NBC Sports Group unveiled a 21 and ½ foot, 6,600-pound Stanley Cup replica in the center of Times Square, NYC. For the next 3 days, the fountain will double as a water fountain, allowing NHL fans to partake in a time-honored tradition and ‘Drink from the Cup.’
Here are some photos of the event, be sure to scroll to the bottom of the page: http://nbcsportsagency.com/nhl-stanley-cup-fountain/
The actual Stanley Cup itself was on hand, along with Rangers legend Adam Graves, member of the 1994 NY Rangers Stanley Cup Champions, Clark Gillies, four-time Stanley Cup Champion with the NY Islanders, and Grant Marshall, a member of the 2003 NJ Devils Stanley Cup Championship team, NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman and NBC Sports Chairman Mark Lazarus to unveil the super-sized replica.
