Final Letter From Christy at WIM

Coming into the series, Christy said she's remain humble till the Cup came to Detroit.  Then, and only then, would she opt to gloat. 

Well, she's remained classy till the very end - and then some.  Rather than pour salt into the wound, Christy has instead shared her experience with the Cup over the last week, even having a picture taken with Zett (WIM).  As much as it stings to see all of these smiling faces around Lord Stanley, you can't help but be happy for her.

Dear PensBurgh,

It's been a week now since the Wings won the 2008 Stanley Cup. I still find it hard to believe sometimes.

I'd like to apologize for the delayed email, but I figured that this letter won't sting as much now that you've had some time to come to grips with your loss. I said I wouldn't gloat until the Wings won. Well, they did but I'm still not sure I can rub it in too much because that's just not how I roll. I want to congratulate the Penguins on a great season and for the great fanbase your team has. It was a pleasure to watch the excitement at Mellon Arena.

I can say that the past week has been absolutely amazing and I have truly cherished this Cup win. My bosses in Chicago allowed me to take the train back to Detroit and I was able to attend the pre-parade party and even drive a red Corvette in the parade! The following day, I had my photo taken at center ice of Joe Louis Arena behind the five big trophies including the Cup and Conn Smythe with three other interns. It has been a weekend I will never forget and I am so proud of my team.

But I really want to congratulate the players who wear the Winged Wheel because our boys found a way to bring the Cup back to Hockeytown and give Detroit something to cheer about. At the beginning of this series, I thought it would be a hard fought series (I predicted the Wings in six), but I truly believed the Wings were the better team. I wasn't disappointed. Fortunately for Wings fans, this team will largely be the same next year with the exception of Dominik Hasek (retirement) and a few other players. However, the core will remain the same and I would love nothing more than to see a back to back Stanley Cup victory.

Thanks for the space and Go Wings!
