Through the course of a year, the Stanley Cup travels more than two hundred days, covering the width and breadth of the globe. Whether it is a celebration with the Stanley Cup champions as they take hockeys greatest prize back to their hometowns or spreading the hockey gospel according to Stanley, the trophy is recognized and revered everywhere it goes. And Phil Pritchard, the keeper of the cup, is with Stanley every step of the way. Travels with Stanley chronicles many of these visits. But this is not a photo essay on the Stanley Cup; it's a book that is as educational as it is entertaining. In each unique photograph, the Stanley Cup is pictured in an iconic setting, and readers are given a lesson in the history, geography, or trivia involved in the location. Whether visiting Elvis Presley's Graceland or NASA in Florida, and whether this book is read in its entirety or in short bursts, Travels with Stanley is a totally unique, totally entertaining look at the world through the eyes of hockey's Holy Grail--the Stanley Cup.

A really fun book.

I sort of wish it had an index, but that would be from forgetting about the table of contents, and flipping through it, I didn't find a photo of the cup used as a planter, as mentioned in the forword, or dropped, although that could have happened several times.

"Stanley with/in/is/on/[verb]..."
Page 47 is touching, to me. Page 121's story is funny. Page 145 has the cup and its Olympic (medal) touch.
