OLD PHOTO: The Stanley Cup and me in Sen. Dick Posthumus' office
March 27, 2017
I was working in the office of Michigan Senate Majority Leader Dick Posthumus when I heard a lot of commotion. This was before the time that a lot of loud noise would be a signal to crawl under your desk or out a window.
It was part of the Detroit Red Wings hockey team bringing the Stanley Cup which they had just won into his office. It was an international symbol of athletic perfection and it was familiar to everybody in Michigan.
The iconic trophy was in the office just before the team was to be presented in the Senate Chambers during a session.
As a pretend sports fan and as the one who had to write notes for Sen. Posthumus' remarks about the team to the Senate, I had to be a quick study about the team and about the NHL. My reward was this picture. It's a neat memory.
