This paper looks at the emotional and cultural significance of the Stanley Cup in Canadian culture. The paper discusses the history of the Cup, as well its impact on local community and nationalism as evidenced by rioting and suicide reduction. Some of the reasons the paper suggests for this extreme significance are a quasi-religious attachment to sports in general and the socially significant role of sports as "ceremonial occasions.
From the Paper:"Winning is arguably the goal of any sport, but with some sporting events, whether you're playing or watching from the stands or your living room, there is so much more going on. If it's your favorite team, the underdog of the season you've been rooting for all along, or the Big Game of the season, sometimes that one game can be exhilarating or devastating beyond all others. This is especially the case when it's a championship game such as the Superbowl, World Series, or, as will be further discussed, the Stanley Cup."
