I went to the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto, Ontario in Canada back in the 90's, It was awesome. They had a replica of the Stanley Cup there. I took a picture with it. I thought that was the closest I would get to the real thing, That changed a few years back. The cup was on display at a Wichita Thunder game. Well, guess what?
