Lord Stanley

Lord Stanley
Yes that Lord Stanley. As the Governor General of Canada, he became a hockey fan as he watched his kids play in various amateur leagues across Canada. As such, he donated the “Stanley Cup”, which evolved into the most impressive trophy in all of professional sports. It was initially contested as a challenge cup for Canada’s top amateur teams, but became the prize awarded to winner of the National Hockey League. Even if he was not into hockey, just donating this award would be enough to put him in.
