The Stanley Cup Rides Shotgun on Road Trip

8/20/2010 6:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

When faced with a choice between who rides up front -- your best friend or The Stanley Cup -- always ALWAYS choose ... THE STANLEY CUP!!

Dustin Byfuglien Stanley Cup Roseau
Last weekend -- the cup spent a day with NHL star Dustin Byfuglien -- who played on the Chicago Blackhawks squad when they won the championship this year.  Dude was rollin' around Roseau, Minnesota when he decided to make a gas run -- and brought Stanley along for the ride.

The person who took this photo was just filling up at the gas station when the car rolled in -- with Stanley buckled up for safety in the front seat.

Shockingly -- it's not the most random place we've seen Stanley ... earlier this year he kicked it with Justin Bieber, hit the club scene in Hollywood and rode a float in a gay pride parade.

Is that player black? It looks like they will have to change the cirriculum on my college class "History of black hockey players in the NHL". It was such an easy A.

They clean it pretty well, and often, and silver is a natural antibacterial... that being said, I wouldn't drink out of it either.

I love that the NHL lets the trophy travel.

Anyone holding that piece of crappy silver/nickle alloy should have gloves on. That thing has been used and abused in very crazy ways. It is a germ fest. Yuck!!! Anti-bacterial?...Yeah Right.

BTW...That is the presentation cup. It is not the original silver one which is in a museumn. There are 3 cups. The presentation version is the cheaper one used by the players. So enjoy your herpies and VD if you drink from this germ cup.

@ GOLLY --

Dude, that's nothing. That liberal POS channel that tries to pass itself off as an "unbiased" sports network, ESPN, ran a hilarious hit-piece a year or two ago talking about how it was really freed black slaves in Canada that invented hockey. I **** you not. Before you know, blacks are going to be credited with inventing everything under the sun before our liberal crackhead media is done with it.
