Stanley Cup Template Freebie

This morning I'm offering a freebie you can use to celebrate your NHL team's trip to the Stanley Cup finals! If you are like me, you may have to go back a couple of years, but that's ok!

I love the Carolina Huricanes, and especially their captain Rod Brind'Amour. They won the Stanley Cup in 2006! (That's actually THE picture of Rod Brind'Amour holding the Stanley Cup from that year in the template outline.)

In 2002 when the Hurricanes were in the Stanley Cup finals my fiance' and I were working at the RBC Center in Raleigh. It was an awesome experience! The Stanley Cup finals is like the Super Bowl of hockey so anybody who was anybody was there.

We met famous hockey players like Ray Bourque. (If you know hockey, then you know who Ray Bourque is!) I was working the suites at the RBC Center and met some of the rock group Three Doors Down, who were in one of my suites. I also met the singer Five For Fighting, John Ondrasik. There were politicians, like Elizabeth Dole in the suite too.

Working at the RBC was great becaue when Wayne Gretzky bought part ownership in the Phoenix Coyotes NHL team, the Carolina Hurricanes were playing the Coyotes that night in Raleigh. The Great One, as Mr. Gretzky is known in the hockey world, was traveling with his new team and was at the game that night!

It gave me goose bumps when they held a little impromptu ceremony at the beginning of the game. Imagine the Queen of England or a President of the US just happening to be in your neighborhood. It was THAT exciting!

Mr. Gretzky is THE best hockey player of all time, holding such a lead on most of the league's records that it will be YEARS before anyone can catch up to him!

Here is the Stanley Cup Template. I'm sorry to say I can't pull for the Detroit Red Wings because they are the team that beat my team in 2002! Besides, I don't think they need any of my support! They are doing fine on their own!

My fiance' is from Pittsburgh, so he is all about the Pittsburgh Penguins. They are running on a huge head of steam and could end up winning the whole thing. It should be an exciting series.

Can't find the link to the template. I can find them for everything else though.

Thanks for the Stanley Cup template! When our Hockeytown Boys, the Red Wings, win this year's Stanley Cup I'll create a page with your template and post it. If the unthinkable should happen and Pittsburg wins... you're on your own with that one!

Detroit, Michigan

PS If our hoop-boys, the Pistons, go on to win the NBA Championship, I'll create a page about that too if you'll do the template ;-)

I finished another layout using your templates! I don't watch hockey, but I have a great story about when I was little and my dad would watch it. Thank you for inspiring me to scrap that little piece of family history! It's the second layout in my blog post, called "Score Bobby Orr".
