The Stanley Cup, quite possibly the coolest trophy in all of sports, will make a visit to Riverside at Romano’s Chicago Pizzeria this Sunday. The LA Kings has an amazing post season run to win the Cup for the second time in three years, and Kings player Jack Ferreira will bring it to Riverside for a couple of hours of the day he gets to spend with the Cup on Sunday evening from 6pm to 8pm. If you’d like to see it up close or take a picture with it, they’re asking for cash donations to benefit the Riverside Community Parks Foundation. Get more details here.

Check out this shot of KCAL at the US Festival! Thanks to KCAL rocker Sean Syfers for finding this picture and sharing it with us for Throwback Thursday. You Rock, Sean! Now, do you wanna really trip out? We recently got a message from a listener asking if we wanted an old banner of ours back. He said his uncle and some friends had had stolen it from the US Festival on a dare, and it has been moving around garages of the IE for 30 something years ever since. Sadly, the uncle is in failing health and wanted to clear his conscience before he passed away, so he told his nephew to return the banner. The nephew (who wanted to remain anonymous, but is a really good guy) dropped it off:

I was there in the summer of 1978 when it opened, and can’t count how many times I bounced around in those uncomfortable cars. Might need to hit the park one more time before it goes away. Here’s some front seat video to remind you of what its like…
