Lord Stanley Express Update

In my previous post about Lord Stanley's wherabouts, I noted that it would be in New York City for not only a photo shoot or two at a FHM/VH1 event, but also to appear on the Late Show With David Letterman. Well, it looks like the bit about David Letterman is false, at least according to Mike Sundheim...

"Erik Cole flew out to Los Angeles last week to film a segment with Carson Daly for Last Call with Carson Daly, which airs on NBC at 1:35 a.m. Cole's appearance on the show will air Friday night (or Saturday morning, technically). Cam Ward and Eric Staal are flying to New York on Thursday morning to begin a media tour with the Stanley Cup. Included on their tour are:

  • VH1 Top 20 Countdown Show - Eric and Cam will appear with host Matt Pinter for this weekend's edition of the countdown
  • SI For Kids - Eric will do a sit-down interview and photo shoot for the magazine
  • FHM - Eric and Cam will be a part of a photo shoot for the major publication
  • ESPNNews Interview - Cam will appear on 4 Quarters on Thursday
  • Cold Pizza - Both players will be in studio on Cold Pizza on Friday morning"

I must be the only one to think cold pizza makes for a horrible breakfast AND therefore, an awful morning sports show name. And I know there are people out there who think cold pizza is a great breakfast...I knew somebody in tenth grade who couldn't get enough of the stuff at lunchtime. Bleeeeech...

Anyhoo, another update regarding Brind'Amour and Commodore*'s Campbell River swim session...somebody actually took a picture of them AND the Cup keeper caught in the middle of the act...
