And in good reason, the Canucks lost to the Bruins in a tough 7 game series. After the harsh exchange of words, the Canadian actor tried to make amends, but the Bruins gave the tequila shots to a Bachelorette party at a nearby table.
What makes the Stanley Cup the most coveted trophy in all of sports is that each player’s name is not only inscribed on Lord Stanley but every player also gets their own day with the Cup. But Boston Bruins Nathan Horton’s day was cut short after the Cup missed its flight from Boston to Canada. Horton planned a parade in his hometown of Dunville, Ont. Unfortunately, the guest of honor arrived three hours late. According to Horton’s wife, the Cup was “lost” at Logan Airport in Boston, Mass.
But a JetBlue spokesperson said, “The Stanley Cup was actually never lost. The person traveling with the Cup checked it in at 7:37am, for an 8:00am flight.” The Keeper of the Cup is Phil Pitchard and is off to take the Cup to Sweden and the Czech Republic next. Ironically, Pitchard was famously featured in a Master Card commercial when he gets stuck in the airport.
The mystery has been solved! The Vancouver Riot kissing couple have been idenfitied as Scott Jones and Alex Thomas. According to the boy’s mother Megan Jones said, “It is something he would do, that’s our boy. He has always lived in his own world, he’s special like that. He doesn’t always connect with what going on around him.”
Jones, who is 29 and a standout comedian, moved to Vancouver six months ago and began dating Thomas shortly after. Writting on his Facebook, Jones said, “Classic! This was shortly after the riot police run over the top of us and naturally Alex needed some comforting.”
Despite people saying the picture was staged, the couple insist they were caught up in the moment, and it has now become one of the most famous makeout scenes of all time…. move over VJ Day in Times Square couple!
Congratulations to the Stanley Cup Champions Boston Bruins, who beat the Vancouver Canucks in seven games. It has been 18 years since a Canadian has won Lord Stanley, and despite coming close, the Vancouver fans showed their frustrations by rioting the city that led to one casualty.
