A friend of mine once got a picture with the trophy after the 2006 series win when there was a visit to the state capitol. If I'm not mistaken, I think there's a posse that travels with and secures the trophy. I'll have to catch up with it this time!

How come the trophy isn't going to Anaheim, Calif., so Albert can see it?
Greg Neunuebel January 07, 2012 at 09:06 AM
No need, Steve. Just take it to Westport Plaza.
