The Stanley Cup patiently waits for the President at the White House on Thursday, February 18, 2016.

"I went to the White House and met with the President." For this to be such a familiar phrase for the Chicago Blackhawks and Banner Collective when recounting how they spent their past week, shows just how special the story of "3 Cups in 6 Years" is.  What should be a "once-in-a-lifetime" experience has now become something of a regular occurrence. Add in the part that the meeting was with the same President all three times, who hails from the same town you represent, and it becomes a story that's almost indescribable.

The excitement and wonder hasn't diminished with each visit either.  When we gather around the crew that has just returned from the trip and start peppering for stories, each response is the same.  With wide eyes that shimmer with amazement-- and a glint of pleasant shock-- we always hear, "I can't believe I was a part of that." So while we let the crew catch their breath and process what they just experienced, please enjoy these snap shots from the time the Banner Collective when to film the Chicago Blackhawks at the White House....again.
