11:17 AM ET 08.26 | Ontario police say a 1907 Kenora Thistles Stanley Cup banner and a Los Angeles Stanley Cup flag that were stolen last week have been recovered. The items were swiped from a Whitecap Pavilion in Kenora, Ont., during two separate incidents on Aug. 17 and Aug. 18. The banner was found last Thursday and has been returned to the northwestern Ontario city. The flag will be given back to its private owner. Police are not releasing who took the items or whether any charges will be laid.

At first I thought Burkie might have stolen it to show the Leafs what it looks like but when I actually read the article (unlike T&R interns) there was no Cup involved.

Wow... A new low for interns. A banner and a flag do not a Stanley Cup make.
