Randy, co-host of comedy and sports podcast "Sklarbro Country," and History Channel's new show, "United Stats of America," joins David to talk about about the strange traditions of the most famous trophy in sports, the Stanley Cup.

The Stanley Cup is about 36 inches tall and weights about 35 pounds. Traditionally, players from the championship winning team get to take home the Stanley Cup and take it where ever they'd like. That's led to some misadventures.
