Delta/Northwest lost Stepan's gold medal
 
Quote:

Apparently, Stepan had the gold medal stashed in a checked bag because new flight regulations instituted in the wake of the latest terrorist scare prohibit carry-ons on international flights arriving in the U.S.

Stepan was returning from the World Juniors in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.

"Just got off phone with Team USA captain Derek Stepan," Russo tweeted. "Airline lost all his bags, including his gold medal, bc no carry-ons out of Canada."

Because of the new travel restrictions out of Canada into the U.S., no carry-ons are allowed other than holding your laptop. So Stepan put his gold medal in the carry-on. None of his bags has arrived, and Stepan says the airline doesn't know where they are. The tournament's leading scorer is holding out hope that the bags can be found because of what's inside.

I'm sure the IIHF would gladly give him another, but damn, the original is going to have so many memories

Levitate 01-08-2010 02:38 PM

yup, that's totally getting stolen, even though it's worth nothing

Fitzy 01-08-2010 02:39 PM

He'll get another one. Its more symbolic than anything, the accomplishment is what matters.

I can't wait to see my guy who sells me DVD's out of a shopping cart next week. He may have Derek Stepans Gold Medal. Like in Coming to America where the Royal luggage is stolen.

Yeah really, I'd be more pissed about losing my personal belongings which can be harder to replace.

N9Y4R 01-08-2010 03:46 PM

Delta is the worst!

I'd rather lose my clothes then my gold medal..

I'm surprised he would check a bag with his medal in it though. Should've just worn it till he got home.
