That's just what Air Canada needed to do right now: Piss off every single hockey-mad Canadian by leaving the Stanley Cup on the ground. Smart move there!

Editorial: No way to treat a lord Should we give Air Canada two minutes for holding? There were a lot of red faces at the airline after word spread that for a few precious hours, the Stanley Cup, a holy grail in this country, went AWOL during a flight from Vancouver to Fort St. John, B.C. Seems the trophy was bumped from the flight because the plane was overloaded and was left sitting in the luggage area at Vancouver's airport.

Unfortunately, no one thought to inform Walter Neubrand, the National Hockey League escort who was accompanying the Cup as it made its annual tour of the hometowns of this year's Cup-winning team, the Tampa Bay Lightning. Neubrand was clearly distraught.

But he should have remembered his history: Lord Stanley's cup is resilient, has been ever since rowdy Ottawa champions drop-kicked it across the Rideau Canal in 1905.

According to hockey lore, the 111-year-old trophy has been used as an ashtray, a dog food bowl and a baptismal font. It has been stolen twice.

It has been mislaid by partying teams too often to mention. It is, in other words, a perfect symbol of the people who play the game and live in this country: it can take whatever is dished out, even by airline baggage handlers.
