    Stanley Cup, meet the Illinois State Fair.

    Gov. Pat Quinn and Chicago Blackhawks owner Rocky Wirtz presented the National Hockey League's championship trophy Friday and urged Illinoisans to see it when it's on display Saturday.

    Quinn said it's fun "to have an opportunity for people in all parts of the state to see the Stanley Cup, touch it, get a picture next to it."

    The Blackhawks won the cup for the first time since 1961 with a six-game victory over Philadelphia in June.

    It will be on display at the state fair Saturday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

    Earlier Friday, Quinn and the Wirtz family had brunch at the mansion where members of the Blackhawks' partner, the United Service Organization, celebrated with Lord Stanley's Cup.
