Avoiding champagne dousings

Got out of that locker room with but a little spray on me. You should have seen these guys, dancing and posing for photos with the Cup. Smiles everywhere. And the whole team was here, injured guys, owners (plus Drew Carey), execs, suspended guys, everyone.
Here is what I know about the trip home for the team:
When it gets on its charter for Seattle tonight, probably around midnight EST, it’s roughly 5 1/2 hours back direct. So for those who are interested in being there to see them at the airport, the team is landing at Boeing Field probably between 2 and 3 a.m. Seattle time. That is what I have been told.
It will sure be a happy trip home for the team.
