As you may or may not have heard, apparently Edmonton is in the Stanley Cup Final. Who knew (other than us, every time the Oilers won, when we could hear the revelry 19 blocks away from Whyte Ave)?
Today, the Clarence S. Campbell Bowl was on display in City Center mall; throngs of people were in front of it, taking pictures with their camera phones. (Note: I wasn't there to look at the cup; I had to run into the mall to mail a letter). Overheard heading back up the elevator:
"You know, the thing has six sides.. do they all have to take pictures of the front?"
I think that most of the people there thought it was the Stanley Cup; being rather uninformed in the ways of hockey, I took thought that's what it was. It wasn't until I started writing this entry that I discovered what it really was (especially as there was no sign, no helpful individual explaining what it was, etc).
