Hockey’s greatest tradition is not the post-series handshake lines or anything else that happens on the ice. Its greatest tradition is doing weird stuff with the Stanley Cup without the fear of being judged. The greatest trophy in sports has seen some stuff it can’t un-see.
Los Angeles Kings’ Alec Martinez capped the greatest night of his life by filling the Cup with three different varieties of M&Ms at a Hermosa Beach bar. Pretty tame stuff, if you overlook the poor decision to sully the bowl with Peanut Butter kind. Anyone who likes those isn’t right in the head.
