Memorial Cup 2008
Kitchener hosted the 2008 MasterCard Memorial Cup and the final Championship game featured Kitchener Rangers and Spokane. Kitchener outplayed Spokane by a wide margin, but Spokane won 4-1. In the post-game ceremony, the presentation of the Memorial Cup was memorable when the cup was hoisted by a Spokane player.... and split into two pieces. That was the main photo on page one of the sports section of The Record newspaper.
The first minute of this attached video shows the Memorial Cup presentation with the trophy splitting into two pieces.
