Before every game, the Washington Capitals usually play soccer. That’s what you get when half your team is European.
The players usually form a circle and kick a soccer ball around in the air. In addition to waking up their muscles and tuning hand-eye coordination, the kickaround is a common team-building activity.
Except tonight, either because the players wanted to change things up due to their seven-game losing streak or because they forgot to pack the right equipment– the players used a giant yoga ball instead of soccer ball. CSN opened their telecast with a clip. It was silly.
Then CSN showed Caps goaltender Braden Holtby tossing two bouncy balls against the wall. Trippy. Use the loop in this GIF to achieve mindfulness.
If the Caps beat the Habs tonight, it will not be because of hard work, team strategy, or good luck. It will be because #YogaSoccer.
