Chicago sports anchor walks fake Stanley Cup case around Boston and it’s hilarious

Because the Blackhawks can win it all Monday night, the Stanley Cup is in town. Whether or not it’s awarded remains to be seen, but a Chicago sports anchor took advantage of the fact with a brilliant prank played on Bostonians.
WGN (Chicago) anchor Pat Tomasulo and his anchor walked around the city in suits and white gloves carrying a case with NHL stickers on it, creating the impression that they were the keepers of the Cup. Though the case was just a normal grey case (the Cup is kept in a black case), Bostonians stopped to take pictures of it as Tomasulo and his anchor dropped it, crashed into poles with it and eventually revealed a Blackhawks jersey inside.
