It's always pool weather during the Summer of Stanley.

Former St. Louis Blues defenseman Michael Del Zotto hung out with the Stanley Cup poolsde and then shared a pretty great picture of it on Wednesday.

Del Zotto is triumphantly hoisted the Cup while standing on a waterfall over a swimming pool.

If you are wondering if Del Zotto got doused and then jumped in the pool after the photo, wonder no longer.

Later in the day, Del Zotto brought his new buddy to visit a friend, Carlo Colaiacovo, who played 284 of his 470 career games with the Blues.

Colaiacovo wore a shirt that read "Fun Guy" while he was with what is clearly the most fun trophy.
