The Tampa Bay Lightning became back-to-back Stanley Cup champions on July 7th. On that same day, Bolts winger Pat Maroon became a back-to-back-to-back Stanley Cup champion.

He celebrated in style on Monday and was throwing beers to fans during the championship boat parade.


Having played on the Saint Louis Blues in 2019, the 33-year-old Maroon has not lost a playoff series in the last three years.

The boat parades begin.

Last year, because of COVID-19, the Lightning decided to take their championship parade to the water. The boat parade was such a success that it has become a tradition within the city and the Buccaneers did the same thing after winning the Super Bowl. Gronk couldn’t stop dancing and TB12 was lit.

In the first Champa Bay parade, Maroon was the life of the party. That was the case again on Monday.

That should come as no surprise for someone who had his mom drink beer from the Stanley Cup.

The players showed up around 10:15 a.m. EST.

All of the city’s hockey fans were on the water when they arrived.

Those who weren’t on the river lined the waterfront.

What happened next was an absolute party and the Bolts dressed for the occasion.

Maroon goes big.

Not long thereafter, the festivities got underway and Maroon was bringing up the rear, but leading the charge.

Although Maroon is known as the party skipper, his teammates were also having themselves a day.

Tampa goalie Andrei Vasilevskiy was named the Most Valuable Player in the playoffs and won the Conn Smythe trophy. He wore it on his head during the parade.

Meanwhile, Maroon was sauced and gave some incredible interviews.

He didn’t even have to be the subject of the interview to command the spotlight.

Even when the parade was over, Maroon kept pounding suds.

Tampa Bay, and Maroon in particular, celebrated hardโ€” maybe a little bit too hard? (There is no such thing.)

Maybe too big?

Somewhere along the line, the Stanley Cup took a tumble. The party went so hard that the trophy itself was damaged.

It was quite the day in Tampa Bay.

Will the Bolts make it three in a row? Will Maroon make it four?
