Having won two of his own during his playing years with the Pittsburgh Penguins, Mario Lemieux is no stranger to Stanley Cup victory parties. Unfortunately some of the current Pens may be, so Mario decided to show them what its all about.
At his unbelievable mansion in Siwickley, Pa, Lemieux threw a party for the team and judging by the pics it looks as though it was one hell of a time. How many people can say they have swam with the Stanley Cup? The players as well as family and friends showed up at the bosses place to celebrate the victory and among the pictures which have surfaced are some with players and family in the pool with the Cup, a great view of the mansion and Mario’s wine cellar.
After winning the NHL’s coveted trophy on Friday, the Pens have since hoisted it on the bus from Detroit to Pittsburgh, show it off (among other things) at their hometown parade, and now this. We also hear that due to Crosby’s request, there was no reception line.
Here are the pics from the party. [Deadspin]
