Summer with Stanley

Capitals massage therapist takes Stanley Cup to yoga class

Coolest trophy in all of sports also does radio spot, hits bowling alley @NHLdotcom

It's been a long summer of partying with the Washington Capitals, so the Stanley Cup decided to relax and center itself.

The team's massage therapist, Cleo Bates, took the greatest trophy in all of sports to yoga class for a little exercise. Because, even if you are made of silver and nickel alloy, you have to take care of your body.

Tweet from @keeperofthecup: Yoga is considered good for you..but when the #stanleycup becomes part of the routine it is considered great. @Capitals Cleo Bates enjoys some time in class.@NHL @HockeyHallFame

Bates had the Cup in Dallas, where it also accompanied him to a radio appearance on 105.3 The Fan and hung out at the Bowlounge alley.

During the class though, the Cup had its own pedastal to rest upon. It looks like all the mats were being used.
