The Washington Capitals defeated the Pittsburgh Penguins on Monday to advance to the third round of the playoffs for the first time in 20 years. You would think that after watching their favorite team win back-to-back Stanley Cups, Penguins fans would take the loss with humility and good sportsmanship. NOPE.
Instead, our Twitter mentions have been filled up with chirps, wishes of failure, and memes like this.
Which is why tonight, I’m here to suggest the perfect product for that special Penguins fan in your life: a Washington Capitals fan box filled with Caps goodies.
Most importantly, it also comes with a signed Evgeny Kuznetsov puck.
Kuzy, as you’ll recall, scored the series-clincher for the Caps on an epic breakaway.
Imagine the pain on their face when they open this. It will be delicious.
The boxes are fulfilled by a new company called Fanchest. Fanchest is a Brooklyn-based startup that curates and sends team-themed gift boxes as a gift. According to a December TechCrunch article, the company recently got $4 million in seed funding with a diverse group of investors that includes New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees and Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller.
If you’re not a sarcastic, mean-spirited person like I am, you can also give this as a gift for a friend, loved one, or baby who you’re trying to turn into a Caps fan.
The two non-signed item boxes start at $59 and include about $80 worth of apparel and gear. There are five Washington Capitals products included. There’s also a Golden Ticket in every box, where fans can win VIP Capitals experiences, signed memorabilia, and more.
You can also take 10% off your order if you use the coupon code RMNB10. You’re welcome.
