Los Angeles Angels get a moment with the Cup

Jun 22, 2014, 9:02 PM EDT

The adventures of the Stanley Cup continued on Saturday as the Los Angeles Angels received an opportunity to get some hands-on time with the trophy. As you can see from the photo below, pitcher C.J. Wilson enjoyed his moment:

(You could probably try to make a “throwing a meatball” joke considering the foodstuff that filled the Stanley Cup recently, but it wouldn’t be recommended.)

As cool as it is to see the silver chalice in the Angels dugout, it’s difficult/impossible to top its moment with the other Los Angeles-based MLB team:

Hey, at least they didn’t leave the Angels hanging, though.

    I’ve loved the Stanley Cup and Vin Scully since the 1960s. Amusing to note that when he was born, the Rangers, Blackhawks and Red Wings were heading into their second season in the NHL, and the Red Wings weren’t even called the Red Wings yet.

    Aren’t most Angels fans also Ducks fans?

      Just the uncool ones.

        They’re still the Los Angeles Angels Of ANNEHEIM, right? Or did that change?

        The only uncool fans in Southern California are the Raiders fans that like the Kings colors. Many Kings fans choose to live in the much superior Orange County . . .

      The Ducks’ arena is a couple blocks away from Angel Stadium, and you can even see it past the outfield.

      So yeah, it’s kind of annoying. I get that a lot of OC folks grew up Kings fans, but c’mon. And I’m sure the Ducks didn’t appear at Dodger stadium when they won the cup.

      God, it feels like the old Usenet days, and not in a good way.
