Tonight, the annual Caps season ticket holder party took place. This year, it was held at the National Museum of Natural History where fans got to pose with the players in front of dinosaurs, aquatic mammals, and in the human origins exhibit cave.
Notable moments from the party include tee shirt guy showing his famous designs to the players, Jay Beagle extending his autograph time for the fans and, T.J. Oshie signing a baby (sort of).
Judging by all the pictures people posted, it looks like everyone had a great time at the museum and maybe got to learn a little something along the way.
First up, some great pictures of fans posing with Jay Beagle, Nate Schmidt, and Karl Alzner.
An extra shoutout goes to Jay Beagle, who apparently entered the museum to make sure all the fans received his autograph. The autograph tables were all shut down at this point.
Good guy, TJ Oshie also made sure a cast and a baby (just the jersey) got signed.
Oshie signed and posed along with Zach Sanford and Matt Niskanen.
Next up, we have Marcus Johannson and Nick Backstrom snickering at the Backstrom gnome and signing autographs for fans.
Andre Burakovsky and Lars Eller paused to take a sweet selfie.
According to Jenn Rubenstein on twitter, Burakovsky told RMNB’s Rachel Cohen that she has talent. Yes, Burra, yes she does.
Ovechkin looked very serious in his pictures with fans and Dmitry Orlov.
Looks like Ovechkin’s wife, Nastya, was there to take instagram videos of the crowd waiting for their turn to get her husband’s autograph.
Of course, you all saw the devastating news about Holtby’s beard so you’re already prepared for these next pictures.
Honestly? In this shadow, it looks like Holtby’s beard is growing back a bit with each passing minute.
In better beard news, Daniel Winnik and Justin Williams have some pretty fantastic ones going.
Brooks Orpik and John Carlson were all smiles in their hats.
Tom Wilson and Brett Connolly teamed up to pose with fans in a cave.
Saving the best for last: Tee shirt guy showed up and pulled an unreal move by bring Tom Wilson a shirt…of Michael Latta’s face.
He also sported a Nate Schmidt shirt and posed with Beagle, Schmidt and Alzner.
Tee shirt guy is my favorite.
