How do you treat the Cup?

Call me selfish, but this post is either to support my thinking that I'm just being crazy, or dispell said fear and realize I'm in the company of other like-minded individuals.  What sparked this was a recent visit to @cmasisak22.

What I'm referring to is the game's reverence for it's end-of-year trophy.  We hear classic tales of players who refuse to touch it if they have not had their name on it.  Players who will bypass attention to lesser team awards (conference trophies, Boston not raising a division banner this year) with their eyes set on the prize.  Players treat the SC as an icon that one has to prove they are worthy to be in the presence of.  My question to Cap's Nation:  Are fans as "reverent" when it comes to the Cup? 

When I see references to the SC used in conjunction with the Caps (signs, fan-game-attire, advertisements, Corey's wallpaper on his Twitter page), I feel like something's out of place.  I'm crazy, right?
