Gina Vivinetto’s Greatest Hits

Def Leppard and the Stanley Cup

Def Leppard singer Joe Elliott caused a ruckus last night when he manhandled the Stanley Cup, hockey’s biggest award. The British band was performing in Detroit, kicking off the season at a “NHL Face-Off Rocks” concert when Elliott was handed the trophy by stage grips. The singer briefly paraded with it, then set it upside down on a podium.

Here is video of the goof:

  1. Who cares? No disrespect to the Cup, but the band has a crap load of hits and sounded excellent. Good choice of artist by the NHL.

  2. Kevin Croitz on said:

    he probably thought it was a pimp cup, its a hockey trophy its supposed to be manhandled, Kevin

  3. that seems really mild compared to some of the stories I’ve read about what actual hockey players have done with (and to) the cup.
