You can call it the Sundae Cup.

Chris Patrick, the Washington Capitals director of player personnel, enjoyed his day with the Stanley Cup by taking it to a Cold Stone Creamery store in Vienna, Virgina, where his kids and family members got to spoon some ice cream out of the bowl atop the Greatest Trophy in All of Sports.

Patrick's children Ashley, Allie, Emma and Annie got to share in the sweet treats with cousins Liz and Jack Dorsey and Cate, Scott and Grant Young.

And while they might be the first ones to eat ice cream out of the Cup, Chris is not even close to the first memeber of the Patrick family to win it.

Chris is actually the fourth generation of Patricks to earn a Cup. Dick Patrick, Chris' father and the grandfather of all nine mentioned above, is the current president of the Capitals.

Dick Patrick's father, Muzz, won the Cup in 1940 as a member of the New York Rangers. Muzz's brother Lynn Patrick was also a member of that team.

Lester Patrick, Muzz and Lynn's father, won the Cup as the coach, GM and a player for the Rangers in 1928. Lester's brother Frank was also a winner with the Vancouver Millionaires.

While the Patrick family is certainly not new to winning the Cup, the celebrations over the years have gotten much cooler.
