Hey Hockey Fans: The Stanley Cup is Coming to Central New York
If you're a big NHL fan, you know how big of a deal the Stanley Cup is. Well, now you can be in the presence of this 'holy grail of hockey.'
As you may have heard already, the Clinton Arena won this year's "Kraft Hockeyville" contest, which means the arena will receive up to $150,000 in upgrades and will host an NHL pre-season game. But as part of all the hockey celebrations associated with winning this contest, the Stanley Cup will also be making a visit. Oh, and you can come see it...
Not only can you come see the Stanley Cup, you can get your photo taken with it. If you love hockey, you know how much you could show off that photo, bragging rights from the time the Stanley Cup was in Central New York.
According to the Facebook Event Page "Kraft Hockeyville Stanley Cup Viewing," you can come by the Clinton Arena on Sunday, September 23rd, between 1pm and 4:30pm to see the Cup. You don't need to buy tickets, just come as you are. And make sure you have your phone/camera on you so you can get a photo as well.
The Clinton Arena will be hosting the Buffalo Sabres as they take on the Columbus Blue Jackets on Tuesday, September 25th as part of the Kraft Hockeyville contest. You can get more information on the Kraft Hockeyville contest including how it works, and who were the runner-ups this year, by visiting: KraftHockeyville.com
If you are planning on getting your photo taken with the Stanley Cup, be prepared to wait in line. We can only assume a LOT of people will be there. If you haven't been to the Clinton Arena before, you'll find it at 36 Kirkland Avenue in Clinton. Good luck on getting your photo and seeing this amazing piece of sports memorabilia.
