Stanley Cup Popcorn Maker targets football fans

by

Update: Apologies all for the sacrilegious nature of the earlier version of this story. I have edited it to reflect the true nature of the Stanley Cup.

There is going to be much pride associated with this particular popcorn maker if you were to bring it home with you. After all, we are talking about the legendary Stanley Cup, which so happens to carry the distinction of being the oldest professional sports trophy in North America. The National Hockey League (NHL) is one of the major professional sports leagues in the U.S. and Canada, which adds to its prestige, making this officially licensed $99.95 Stanley Cup Popcorn Maker to be just the right purchase for hardcore hockey fans in your family – or at least those whom you know in your work circle.

The Stanley Cup Popcorn Maker happens to enable one to carry it overhead in a triumphant manner, or perhaps seal it with a case in order to celebrate an extremely successful playoff run. This unique looking popcorn maker will feature the iconic eight-band chalice design, a reflective exterior for that added touch of authenticity, as well as a deep bowl which has been traditionally reserved for champagne, although this time around, this particular Stanley Cup Popcorn Maker will be a hot air popper in disguise, capable of churning out up to 10 cups of popcorn in a matter of five minutes – all sans oil!

Football fans? I think you may want to see what NHL actually stands for.

This is a NHL Popcorn maker- National Hockey League you tw|t. Not American Football.

The Stanley Cup is the championship trophy for the National HOCKEY League. I’m sure many American football fans are also hockey fans, but I’d say those who like pucks on ice are the true target market, not fans of Monday Night Football.

The Stanley Cup is the Trophy for Hockey, not Football.

Ummmm… The Stanley Cup is a hockey trophy, not football. NHL (National Hockey League) is even stamped on the side of the popper. Next time do your research a little better.

The NHL is hockey. Not soccer/football.

Hockey?
I mean, shouldn’t you have at least mentioned the NHL or hockey somewhere is your jokey description.

Good thing I’m not Canadian, or you’d be in trouble.

The joke is on the writer who obviously knows less about sports than the people he is trying to make fun of. HOCKEY (Stanley Cup)is played differently than anything he wrote about. I’m sure the maker of the product is pleased as well.

I don’t know if you’re being sarcastic… The Stanley Cup is the trophy given to the winners of the NHL tournament. That’s hockey, not football.

Thanks Cary. They don’t even know what sport the trophy belongs to! Sad. Just lost a sale.

LOL, I think the author is British or something and doesn’t realize that The Cup is for hockey, not football.

I think a re-print is in order…..

The Stanley cup is awarded for hockey (the NHL on the side stands for National Hockey League). This has nothing to do with football

The British are just jealous, with the exception of rugby, we actually have contact sports. They aren’t even competitive in the world theater in their own sports. FIFA World Cup is a perfect example.
Just about every country that was once under the thumb of the empire has now surpassed it.
Drink your warm beer, eat your national dish (which I believe is now Indian curry? Opposed to fish and chips?) and STFU!

At least you’re still better than France.

Dear all,

Thanks for pointing out my mistake. I humbly apologize for ruffling more than a few feathers. I have amended the story accordingly.

Once again, do accept my sincere apologies.
