From Hockey Fan Confessions, which, you guys, check that stuff out, because wow.
The Capitals lost last night, which I was surprised they were even capable of doing anymore. It was a generally good game at the Preds’ home cave, but a few bad bounces and a couple mistakes earned the team their first loss since December 23rd.
Now, on the back half of a full weekend, and playing against a quickly improving Stars team, the Caps risk doing something they’ve not done since the beginning of December: losing twice in a row.

Blade Runner is on Cinemax at 7 PM.
A desperately underrated moved based on a short story by the most important writer of the last century, Philip K. Dick, who didn’t live to see the theatrical cut (which he might have hated…).
Harrison Ford, at his peak of sex symbolism, is a detective pursuing four fugitive androids who are plotting to prolong their lifespans in 2019 L.A.
Rutger Hauer, often accused of chewing scenery, is at his very best here, but no performances touch the craft behind this film. The costumes, the cinematography, even the score by Vangelis is top notch. Great movie.
