I’m a 26-year old male without a mortgage, so my only life goal right now is to save cash like a squirrel hoards nuts. And every month, I fail. Looking at my growing stash of gadgets, jerseys, and random Capitals memorabilia, my family and friends just sigh. Somewhere deep inside I know I don’t need any of this stuff. But dude, I just can’t help it.
Last week the Caps’ new official Tumblr, Capitals Overtime, furthered my spending woes with another product I don’t need but must have: Washington Capitals Matryoshka dolls. The dolls feature Ovi, Backy, Sasha Minor, Greenie and good ol’ Kanoobs, and are beautifully hand-painted by Moscow on the Potomac. They are available for $39, and you can purchase them here.
Christmas may be six months away, but it’s never too early to give the gift of gradually shrinking Caps players. Even if li’l cousin Jimmy is a Penguins fan, he can always fill the dolls with Russian dressing, hang them precariously from a net, and destroy them with pucks.
And no Varlamov. Hmm.
