Is Nothing Sacred?

Much has been made about whether or not the Carolina Hurricanes "deserved" to win the Stanley Cup. In my book, if you win 16 games in the playoffs, you deserve the Cup*. But this picture made me question that seemingly simple logic:

Look closely (click on the picture to enlarge it). Closer. Do you see? That's right - the 'Canes are pouring Michelob Ultra into Lord Stanley's sacred chalice. John Labatt is still, no doubt, rolling in his grave.

Then again, considering that most of the hockey world expected a Carolina win to mean that the Cup would be used as a spitoon, maybe Michelob Ultra isn't so bad after all.

* Unless you cheated by illegally having a foot in the crease when you scored the Cup-winning goal. Then you deserve to rot in hell for eternity.

Tastes like Water/Less fattening Ultra must have been the premium lockeroom sponsor of the SCF, because in an Oil lockeroom photo after game seven, Harvey looks to be pounding an Ultra as well.

Oh well, it's not BUD light or any fake Budweiser, so let em at it. It's not like they didn't get lots of real beer later on that night/morning.
