Save the Stanley Cup - Pass a Highway Bill

When infrastructure issues cause arguably the most coveted trophy in sports to be delayed in its delivery to world champions, its time for a change.

The American Equipment Distributers (AED) team – from their Illinois HQ – are pretty big hockey fans. So when the most coveted prize in professional hockey - the Stanley Cup - was delayed in its delivery to the world champion Chicago Blackhawks because of traffic issues, AED President Brian P. McGuire had this to say:

“As key congressional committees examine solutions to restore certainty to the federal highway program, the holy grail of professional sports trophies, the Stanley Cup, was delayed by traffic from reaching the 2015 NHL champion Chicago Blackhawks; our inadequate roads and bridges have reached a new low. Our nation’s crumbling infrastructure has broad implications for the U.S. economy and international competitiveness, but it’s now impacted one of the sports world’s ultimate competitions. Continued inaction is unacceptable and – like a Stanley Cup champion – bold, fearless leadership is required for America to once again have a winning surface transportation system.”
