The Stanley Cup Took A Tumble Today (Video)

It was a windy day in Newfoundland today.  How windy?  Windy enough to blow the Stanley Cup off a table and send it crashing to the ground.

As a former member of the Cup winning Boston Bruins, Michael Ryder had his day with Lord Stanley today, and following a parade through the streets of his hometown, Bonavista, Newfoundland, the newly acquired Dallas Stars forward held a send-off rally on top of a St. John’s hotel.

That probably wasn’t the best of ideas, as the 50 km/h winds were enough to knock the 35-pound Stanley Cup off balance.  No word yet on whether the fall will land Lord Stanley on the I.R.

Here is a look at the fall.
