Who knew the Stanley Cup could give so much, but it has, as players from the Los Angeles Kings continue to share it with their fans and curious onlookers.
After trips to Las Vegas and Pittsburgh, the Cup became the favored view at The Strand House Sunday night, no easy feat at this oceanview restaurant in downtown Manhattan Beach. As reported on NBC TV news, Cuba Gooding, Jr., Sharon Stone and Jerry Bruckheimer were present.
Monday, the Cup traveled atop a fire truck down Pier Avenue in Hermosa Beach and then in a Mercedes Benz convertible on The Strand. It then was at a ceremony in which Kings team captain and MB resident Dustin Brown thanked the city's police and fire personnel for their support.
MB firefighter Craig Youngdale, who was there when Brown appeared with the Cup, is seen in the NBC TV news footage, talking about what the Cup means to a native Canadian such as himself and how special it was to see it in person.
Zislis Group entrepreneur Michael Zislis, who owns The Strand House, is also seen in the video talking about the Kings players who live in the community.
