We just can't have nice things

Stanley Cup OK after slight dent

DETROIT (AP) -- The Stanley Cup is OK after taking a tumble during the Red Wings' celebrations in Detroit.

NHL spokeswoman Bernadette Mansur says Saturday the Cup got a slight dent Friday after some players took the trophy to Cheli's Chili Bar, a downtown restaurant owned by Red Wings defenseman Chris Chelios.

Mansur says the dent was smoothed out, and the trophy was expected to keep making the rounds.

Thousands of Red Wings fans cheered Friday during a parade and rally in downtown Detroit where the Cup was shown off. The Red Wings clinched the Cup on Wednesday night in Pittsburgh.

Growing up

This was in an email that I was copied on, sent by someone who makes significantly more money than I do:

"She is currently on maturity leave"

Apparently she still has some growing up to do .... isn't quite mature enough just yet.
