No word as to whether Parse will get his name on the Cup, as he only played nine games this year. But he is the first UNO player to play on a Stanley Cup winning team.
And while many fans feel that winning the Super Bowl or a World Series title is more noteworthy, there's no denying that the awarding of the Stanley Cup is the greatest ceremony. It's certainly more reverential, and there is no greater joy for a hockey player than to be able to hoist it over your head on the ice. The alcohol will almost certainly follow later, but on the ice, it's simply a profound expression of joy.
Congratulations to Scott...and if he gets a chance to have a day with the Cup, here's a selfish wish that he considers spending it in Omaha.
