If the greatest trophy in all of sports can't skip the line at the airport, truly no one can.

The Stanley Cup traveled to Nashville for the potentially clinching Game 6, and had to go through the X-ray machine just like everyone else.

Phillip Pritchard, the "Keeper of the Cup" tweeted a photo of the Cup being scanned by security before the flight to Nashville.

The Cup had to be laid on its side to fit in the machine, and Pritchard also tweeted a shot of the computer screen showing security found that there was nothing hidden inside.

Earlier in the day, the Cup and the Conn Smythe trophy were shined up, just in case they are presented after Game 6.
