STRANGE SPORTS ITEMS - WOW - THE 2011 BOSTON BRUINS BAR TAB AFTER THE CHAMPIONSHIP CELEBRATION! - $100,000 BOTTLE OF RARE CHAMPAGNE!

It's the most prestigious tournament in ice hockey - so when you win it, there's only one way to celebrate.

Stanley Cup champions the Boston Bruins have toasted their 2011 victory with a staggering $156,679.74 bar bill at the MGM Grand in Mashantucket, Connecticut on Saturday night - and that wasn't even the full team, but just six of its apparently hardiest members.
However $56,679.74 of the tab went on the players working up the Dutch courage to make one final order that will go down in history: a $100,000 bottle of Ace of Spades Midas Champagne.

There are just six of the 30-litre bottles in existence - well, five now.

Made by luxury brand Armand de Brignac and produced by Champagne house Cattier, it is the largest bottle of luxury Champagne in the world.

The gold metallic bottles are crafted entirely by hand, inspired by fashion designer Andre Courreges.

Each have two Ace of Spades insignias and four hand-applied pewter lables.

They are housed in a black wooden case, lined with velvet and fitted with an engraved nameplate.

Each is embossed with the Champagne's royal crest.

The bottle ordered by the Bruins was hand-delivered by Shrine owners Ed Kane, Joe Kane and Randy Greenstein.

Of course there was only one cup that was prestigious enough to drink such a drink from.

His team mate Shawn Thornton, meanwhile, is pictured drinking straight from the gold bottle - which is so big that he needed assistance holding it up.

Images of the joyful, debauchery-filled celebration are in direct contrast to scenes pictured in defeated Vancouver last week.
The Canucks lost 4-0 to the Bruins in Game Seven of the tournament - sparking violent riots in the West Coast Canadian city.
Police squared off against angry youths who burned cars and destroyed store fronts in savage demonstrations last week.

A photograph of one couple lying on the ground kissing in the midst of the riots has become the iconic image of the violence after they declared they had been beaten by police.
But in Massachusetts there was nothing but joy. And despite hangovers that must have rivalled those portrayed in the Hangover II, the players still managed to make it to Fenway Park on Sunday to be honoured by the Boston Red Sox.
The Midas bottle was signed by every member of the team there - including Tim Thomas, Zdeno Chara, Patrice Bergeron, Milan Lucic, Brad Marchand and Shawn Thornton.

It will be on display at High Rollers and is set to be raffled off to benefit the Bruins foundation.

The first Midas bottle also sold for $100,000 at a casino - at the famous nightclub XS in the Encore casino in Las Vegas.
