It was only a matter of time before a mother of a member of the Washington Capitals’ was inspired to do a cup stand of her own.

The Stanley Cup recently made a trip to Gävle, Sweden the hometown of Washington’s assistant captain Nicklas Backstrom. His mother, Catrin, however, stole the show by joining the long list of people who have been vaulted face first into hockey’s greatest trophy.

This is surely the stuff that legends are made of.

The Capitals’ unprecedented summer of celebrating their Stanley Cup championship has been absolutely electric. A new standard has been set, and if any team tries to one-up it, well, quite frankly I would be extremely concerned for their well being.
