Synopsis: The Stanley Cup, steeped in tradition and lore, revered by any player to set foot on the ice-drop-kicked into a canal?!

Follow the true exploits of the most celebrated of sport's trophies beyond the champagne toasts and all-star embraces. Why is the Stanley Cup in Mario Lemieux's Swimming Pool is a wild, globe-trotting romp filled with zany, surprising, and often touching accounts of what really happens once hockey's greatest quest has been conquered and the celebration begins-off the ice.

What did the sport's greatest players do when, king for a day, they spent an eventful twenty-four hours with the Stanley Cup? The prestigious trophy has held everything from beer to infants, and has been carted from Moscow's Red Square to Bob's Big Boy. Why is The Stanley Cup in Mario Lemieux's Swimming Pool? includes: * Stories of raw emotion and personal triumph-a visit to MIKE KEANE'S one-hundred-year-old grandmother's nursing home, and a presentation by JOE NIEUWENDYK to his blind professor during a reception at Cornell University * Raucous anecdotes of high comedy-nights abandoned on street corners, visits to strip clubs, golf course hi-jinks, and a trip to the bottom of MARIO LEMIEUX'S pool * Unbelievable twenty-four-hour world travel to Sweden, Russia, and beyond, mysterious tales of the Stanley Cup ghost, and reflections from hockey's greatest of the greats -HOWE, GRETZKY, ESPOSITO, and HULL

Would you drink from the Stanley Cup if you knew where it had been? Here's your chance to find out!

KEVIN ALLEN has been the USA Today's hockey beat writer since 1986 and is a member of the Professional Hockey Writers Association. His previous books include Brett Hull, USA Hockey and Crunch: A History of Fighting in the NHL.
