I just saw Zdeno Chara lift the Stanley Cup
But then I saw the Cup make its way to Tummy Thomas.
That didn’t hurt so much. The fat kid won. The guy who didn’t make the NHL until his 30s won. The guy who played backup the year he signed his big NHL contract and was called all kinds of names by the fans won. The dude from Flint, Michigan, that’s not the one who just opens your front door and waltzes in when he visits Canada won. The ginger won. The underdog won.
Every Chara has a silver lining.
