Baby photos: Brent Seabrook’s newborn son gets picture with the Stanley Cup

Aug 31, 2013, 11:00 PM EDT

Some play their whole careers and never touch the Stanley Cup, or get their photo taken with it. source:

Fact is that some people may go their whole lives without such an event with Hockey’s Holy Grail.

Then came the photo of little Carter Seven Seabrook, born only on Aug. 16 and the son of Chicago Blackhawks defenseman Brent Seabrook and his wife Dayna, actually sitting inside the cup of the Stanley Cup on Friday.

Seabrook had his day with the Stanley Cup, touring it around his home town of Tsawwassen, B.C., and then to Kelowna, about a four-hour drive northeast of Vancouver.

The photo of the young couple’s son sitting in Lord Stanley’s mug naturally found its way on to Twitter, by way of the account @keeperofthecup.

The middle name, Seven, garnered a large reaction on social media, mostly because of its prominence in a Seinfeld episode, when the character George Costanza wanted that name for his kid.

Brent Seabrook wears the No. 7 for Chicago. The Blackhawks won the Stanley Cup thanks to a thrilling and improbable late third-period comeback against the Boston Bruins in Game 6 of the final in June.

It’s the second Stanley Cup of Seabrook’s career.

    Why is it babies always cry when they’re sat in the Cup?
