Mark Messier, the Stanley Cup and some enterprising kids.

The Nepean CrazyTrain are a Nepean Minor Hockey Bantam B House League team with some big ambitions. They have managed to get into the final 10 in the Canada-wide TSN Bring Home The Cup competition. It's a contest where Mark Messier brings the Stanley Cup to the winners, and they also get a big-screen TV. The kids on the team (all 13 and 14 years old) did a bottle drive in frigid winter weather, managing to raise $850 to support military people whose family members have been killed overseas. This got them into the top ten. Here is the website to visit in order to vote for these guys to win the big prize:

Every time you vote, you get a chance at tickets for a Stanley Cup Final game in 2009. If these kids do win, they plan to donate the big screen TV to CFB Petawawa, the other prizes to the military families they support, and they plan to bring the Stanley Cup and Mark Messier to CFB Petawawa as well.
