Cal Ripken, Jr., the greatest man ever to live, attended the Washington Capitals 1-0 win over the Pittsburgh Penguins on Wednesday.
Ripken played all 21 seasons of his MLB career with the Baltimore Orioles, the greatest baseball franchise ever to live. He finished 5 seasons with a batting average above .300, hit 431 home runs, won the World Series in 1983, and batted in 1697 runs. Ripken owns the MLB record for consecutive games played (2,632) and also our hearts.
Seriously, just look into those baby blues. What a hero.
Below the jump, check out pictures of Cal hanging out at the Verizon Center.

Jordan F. (@Jordanfabian) managed to grab a pic with Cal as he was leaving.
If anyone else managed to snap a picture of Ripken at the game, send it over and we’ll put it up!
