    Not Stanley Clarke, if that's what you were thinking.

    Stanley Cup.


    We have been sort of the house band for a local pub, playing two Thursdays a month. They asked if we could start an hour early tonight because they had a private party coming in. They didn't tell us that the private party was bringing the Stanley Cup.

    The tall base with all of the scribbling on it makes it useless as a punchbowl. :wacky:

    I thought Stanley Cup first but thought you must mean Stanley Clark around these parts... I was pleasantly surprised.

    I knew it was the Stanley Cup when I saw the title! Lord Stanley's Cup as we call it in the motherland! Who was the player that brought it?

    It just puts it at the right height to use a straw. Just saying.

    That's quite a surprise guest to have drop in on a gig. Nicely done!

    It was a guy from the front office. Can't remember his name, but I remember him saying that he is moving on to the NJ Devils, so figure out who just left the Pens for the Devils in the front office and you've got your man.

    2005 Fender American Deluxe Precision 5. Came to me (dirt cheap :D) with a white pickguard. I torted that with the quickness and added a Sadowsky preamp. It is indeed drool.

    Here's a link to the thread where I added the Sadowsky. Sadowsky Preamp Upgrade on an MIA Deluxe P

    See explanation above.

    Your title could have been :

    I played for the Stanley cup

  18. That's awesome. Also, can't help but see you're in the Motor City. If you mean Detroit, your neighbours from south say hi.
  19. Nice silverware, and check out those guns!!
