Nathan Horton's Day With The Cup Was Short Lived

This is actually quite a comical story when it first broke not too long ago. At the same time, it was a frustrating day for some people. It really all depends where you stand and how you look at the situation. Traditionally, each player on a Stanley Cup winning roster will spend a day with the cup in their respective hometown. Bruins forward Nathan Horton had his day shortened with hockey's greatest prize today as flight delays left an entire city disappointed.

Horton's hometown of Welland, Ontario in Canada was supposed to see a parade that featured their greatest export celebrating his Stanley Cup victory. Due to a flight delay, the cup was stranded in Boston. The cup did not arrive in Canada until approximately 2:30 p.m. after several fans had already left. Twitter was blowing up with tweets from Horton himself and his wife, Tammy Plante-Horton, with updates about when the cup will arrive. The fans that did stick around to see it witnessed a player celebrating a championship in his first ever playoff appearance.
