When Los Angeles Kings' Hall of Fame broadcaster Bob Miller found out he would be spending an evening with the Stanley Cup, he made sure to invite some longtime friends to the party.
One of the first people he invited to the festivities was Nashville Predators play-by-play man Pete Weber, who served as a Kings television and radio analyst alongside Miller from 1978-81. The longtime friends go as far back as their college broadcasting days when Miller was at the University of Wisconsin and Weber was at Notre Dame.
"He called us when the date was set in stone and asked if we could make it out. We said we'll make it. It might have taken 10 seconds for us to say yes," Weber said. "It was a tremendous situation. And I was very careful, I did not touch the Cup."
