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 [1] 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 [2] 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.

Stick-tap to our friends over at Yahoo! Sports’ Puck Daddy [3] blog for pointing out this great prank. Check out the video below.
