Mumford & Sons Drink Out Of The Stanley Cup

(Radio.com) Mumford & Sons got sporty during a concert stop in Chicago over the weekend by inviting members of the recently crowned NHL Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks onstage at Cricket Hill at Montrose Beach on last Friday night (June 19).

To make the most of the moment, the Blackhawk players excited the hometown crowd by bringing the actual Stanley Cup onstage, with members of Mumford & Sons taking drinks and getting doused with a beverage of some sort from the oversized chalice.

"It would be a huge honor for us if they would take just a little sip from the Cup if that's OK with you," Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews said, with the band members lining up for a turn.

The moment was in part facilitated by the Mumford & Sons' show being postponed from earlier in the week due to the outdoor venue being hit with severe rainstorms. Watch it here.
