Once again, amateur teams in Canada have a chance to win a special contest where Mark Messier brings the Stanley Cup to the winner’s town and everyone parties the day away with Mark and the Cup. Bring Home the Cup
This is a nice little prize for sure, and good for Messier for taking part like this. It’s not every professional athlete who would travel to some quaint little town or village in possible inclimate weather and hang out with the locals. Can you see Barry Bonds or some NFL player with gold chains hanging off him doing this?
Anyway, this contest closes on March 12 so if you have a team, maybe you should give it a shot pretty soon. You could ask Messier about Gretzky and Sid the Kid and Sean Avery and all kinds of things, including if he ever considered playing for the Habs and if not, why not.
Franky speaking though, if I won this contest, I’d rather hang out with Jean Beliveau, but I’m sure people would like Messier too.
