The Stanley Cup is making a tour we all wish we could make at least once in our lives. Having been once again awarded to the Los Angeles Kings, the Cup is now being taken on a circuit of Southern California to celebrate the Kings’ second championship in three seasons.
On this stop, the Cup — legendary in its own right — was taken to the broadcast booth at a Los Angeles Dodgers game, so that Vin Scully — a legend in the broadcasting booth — could check out the greatest trophy in sports.

Is that a bit of envy we detect in Scully’s words when asking about those margaritas? The Stanley Cup had only recently been washed from its visit to the studios of Jimmy Kimmel Live. There they made big margaritas and poured them in for the drinking.
Scully would likely much rather see the Dodgers win a World Series than the Kings’ Stanley Cup, but a man as connected in the Los Angeles sports scene as Scully is has to be happy that the winning culture is starting to extend beyond just basketball.
The Dodgers have a bright season ahead of them still and two months into the season it’s looking like Scully could be dropping by the Staples Center in November to give the Kings a look at the World Series trophy as motivation to try and go out and win another cup.
