If you ride Metro-North long enough, you see everything.
But until yesterday, Tom Feeley had never seen the Stanley Cup.
The longtime Westporter — whose own sport at Staples High School was wrestling — was heading home on the 4:11. As the train left Grand Central, the conductor said the National Hockey League’s most famous trophy was along for the ride.
Tom thought he was kidding. But sure enough — in Greenwich — a big white-gloved guy walked through, carrying the cup.
It was headed for Stamford. NBC Sports is headquartered there, and they’re promoting the playoffs.
Let’s go to the video!
Most people seem blase. But look closely at the end.
You’ll see Tom touch the Stanley Cup.
