Well, well, well. What do we have here? All of you #Grabbo Acolytes: prepare for defeat. All of you #Grabo Soldiers, get ready to crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and hear their lamentations. The debate has been settled: it is Grabo, not Grabbo.
The battle has raged for ages (a few months) and taken many lives (140-character limits). Torontonians and a minority of Caps fans fell firmly into Camp Grabbo. Other people, meanwhile, sided with Camp Not Obviously and Completely Wrong. Because a plurality of Caps blogospherians fell into the B Singularity, we had a temporary armistice through the season’s first seven games, but recent developments may give us a lasting peace.
When my personal favorite Caps Superfan1, Ovie [sic2] the Bulldog, met Mikhail Grabovski on Friday, he got a final judgement on preferred nickname spelling directly from the Caps
2C 3C whatever he’s awesome wherever he plays:
Meeting Grabovski at practice! I told him people spell it Grabbo he said no, it's Grabo #ArguementOver 😉 pic.twitter.com/GJTrY2anCR

Then again, the fact that there’s a typo in this tweet somewhat undercuts the finality. But no big; we should just be impressed that a brachiocephalic dog can use Twitter in the first place.
So the matter is settled. Are you Grabbo hardliners going to allow us, the Victorious, to melt your swords down into a throne or what? Line forms to the left.
