The tradition in hockey in which you don’t touch the conference trophy is a great one.
I hate that too few teams adhere to it. Statistically speaking there’s zero correlation to touching it, not touching it, winning and losing. But it’s an awesome quirk if everyone would just leave the thing alone. Unlike Tuesday night:
Too bad I’m rooting for Sidney Crosby’s team now. Although the last Penguin captain who touched it DID win the Cup. Then again, he also got cancer.
