Imagine you're Howie Borrow, one of the white-gloved custodians of the Stanley Cup.
You know Nathan Horton only gets the Cup for one day. You know there's about 6,000 people in a park in Dunnville waiting for their local hero to show it off. You know you only have one chance to get it right.
When the Cup doesn't show up in the baggage claim area like it was supposed to, you've got a problem. Horton doesn't have a full day with his Cup. And Dunnville starts its Stanley Cup party without the main guest.
Stanley Cup arrives in Dunnville more than 5 hours late
