We’ve gone four long days since the Washington Capitals last played. As the Caps spent their Thursdays preparing for game one at home against the New York Rangers, Caps fans across the region and world did their duties as well: rocking the red (including a fair number of RMNB t-shirts) and decorating their worlds with all kinds of Caps paraphernalia.
Let’s all share in each other’s enthusiasm. If you’ve got pics of your own psyche-up rituals, share them in comments.
And, oh yeah: Crash the net.
