On Tuesday, former Capitals defenseman Nate Schmidt authored his first Instagram post since mid January.
“Playoff hockey makes me 😁,” Schmidt wrote.
This led to a fan asking Schmidt a Very Good question.
Yes, these are two scary things.
The happy Instagram post from Schmidt comes at a great time. Clark Toys are now taking pre-orders for a smiling Nate Schmidt bobblehead that is somehow grinning even bigger than the Ceramic Nate the Caps gave out during the April 2017 Inova blood drive
The bobblehead, which is part of Clark Toys’ 2018 NHL Baller Series, is on sale for $34.99. It is due to ship in summer 2018.
We can only hope that Clark Toys sends the miniature version of Schmidt to the life-size one, if only to get another real-life comparison of those smiles.
