People lined up early outside the BMO Harris Bank Center. Why? The Stanley Cup was in the building. Fans lined up all across the building to take a picture with the championship trophy. It was an opportunity not worth missing.
“I mean who wouldn’t want to see the cup,” says IceHogs fan Rick Giddings. “Three in a row you know. It’s a trifecta. Why wouldn’t you want to be here. My daughter’s kissing the cup. You know what I mean?”
“I was pretty excited,” says Jordan Bly. “I saw it two times today. I saw it upstairs, then I saw it down here.”
“So I ordered tickets in September,” says Nicole McQuaid. “Just to make sure we could come. It’s amazing. We were there for the banner raising game. So we’re diehards.”
The IceHogs finished the day with a 3-1 win against the Lake Erie Monsters.
