Last year, our good friend Alec Martinez won the Stanley Cup with the LA Kings. In fact, he scored the game winning goal! (As well as the winning goal against the Blackhawks, but we won’t talk about that.) Ray had played hockey with Alec starting way back in high school, all the way through until we graduated from college. So, needless to say, they’ve had a long friendship.
Thankfully, due to their friendship, I got to benefit! Every player on the winning hockey team gets 24 hours with the Stanley Cup to do whatever they’d like (within the relatively non-strict rules.) Alec was kind enough to invite those he cares about most to share in this experience (as he did two years prior.) We all flew down and spent the day on Lake Austin outside of Dallas – hanging out on a pontoon, playing horseshoes, playing volleyball, eating way too much BBQ, and enjoying an amazing bonfire. We rented a house that fit over 20 of us, and the house looked like it was straight out of Game of Thrones. Probably the strangest VRBO ever, but it worked out. 🙂
