Tammy Horton-Plante , wife of Bruins first-line winger Nathan Horton, tweeted that the Stanley Cup was lost at Logan Airport on Sunday. Horton was scheduled to have the Cup on Sunday and bring it to Dunnville, Ontario, where a parade was scheduled. While the Cup was indeed missing from the parade, it was never actually missing.
Speaking with WEEI.com, a JetBlue representative explained that the Cup was scheduled to fly from Boston to Buffalo on an 8 a.m. flight. It was checked in seven minutes late, however, as its 7:37 a.m. check-in went past the 30-minute cutoff time. As a result, it missed its flight and had to take a later one. Massport told WEEI.com that after checking with both Logan Airport and the State Police, nothing was ever called in about the Stanley Cup being missing.
After things were sorted out with TSA, Horton’s wife tweeted: CUP day cut short if cup shows as at all sucha bummer, and followed it with: Parade will be late and cup will arrive this afternoon hopefully. X ur fingers jetblue gets it right.
