Detroit Red Wings' Luke Glendening takes a spin with the Blue Angels

Sure, every hockey player wants to end up spending part of his summer with the Stanley Cup, but those who don't still manage to have some fun.

Case in point: Detroit Red Wings forward Luke Glendening, who spent Tuesday flying over the greater Detroit area with the Blue Angels.

The Detroit News tagged along and got the video below, including a pretty sweet near-vertical takeoff.
