Two years ago, former Caps roomies Tom Wilson and Michael Latta gave a ridiculous tour of their apartment for EPIX’s The Road to the Winter Classic. It became an internet phenomenon. The tour included a look inside Wilson and Latta’s mostly empty refrigerator, which included three bottles of Heinz Ketchup.
Since then, the two players have become synonymous with ketchup. Last year, Caps fans baked ketchup cookies for Wilson and Latta. Another, reader/regular commenter Gene got a ketchup bottle signed by Michael Latta at an autograph signing.
On Saturday, Gene and his adorable son got Wilson to autograph it too, which now gives the family possession of what I’m guessing is the first and last Caps roomie, dually signed ketchup bottle.
Wilson signed the bottle at a charity event Saturday held at Nando’s Peri-Peri in Arlington.
And just to think, this all happened because of one little joke.
