WHITE SOX WELCOME STANLEY CUP CHAMPION CHICAGO BLACKHAWKS

Blackhawks Alternate Captain Patrick Sharp to Visit U.S. Cellular Field with the Stanley Cup
...
CHICAGO – The Chicago White Sox will host the Stanley Cup and Chicago Blackhawks alternate captain Patrick Sharp tonight for the White Sox game vs. Baltimore at 6:10 p.m. Sharp and the Stanley Cup will be on the field for a special ceremony prior to the start of the game.

The Stanley Cup previously visited U.S. Cellular Field in 2010 with Blackhawks head coach Joel Quenneville, when the White Sox hosted “Champions Night,” and all four major sports trophies (Stanley Cup Trophy, Lombardi Trophy, Larry O’Brien Trophy and Commissioner’s Trophy) were all present at U.S. Cellular Field during a ceremony.

Tickets for this evening’s game are available at whitesox.com or the U.S. Cellular Field ticket office.

Especially since we lost our 'coveted' BP Cup.

Supposedly White Sox management has been told that none of the players are allowed to hold the cup. NHL is worried they would drop it.

That's really lame. I remember as a little scrap running into the cup at a random hotel where one of the champs was staying. No security, no white gloves, just the player wandering around with the cup letting anyone and everyone hold it, run around with it, take pictures with it.

There's already 2 cups as it is, get over yourselves NHL.

I think he was joking. As in, they were afraid Sox players were going to drop the Cup in the same manner they tend to drop baseballs.
