The Stanley Cup is one of the most revered sports trophies around the world and it has been a glimmer in the eye of many hockey teams and it's players. When won, it's usually treated w/respect.
"Usually" being the operative word. The Cup was used as a flower pot in 1907 when it was stolen for ransom from a photographer's home (where it had been accidentally left by the team). However, when no one showed any interest in retrieving the trophy, the culprit left the Cup on the steps of the home from where he took it from.
The woman who lived there, not knowing what it really was, used it as a flower pot until the team remembered they had left it there! The Cup has been to weddings, bars, and parties.
It's been used as a baptismal bowl. One player had his dog eating kibble from it, while others have taken it to bed. In 1924, a team had it in the trunk of a car when they got a flat.
