With the Capitals headed to the Stanley Cup Final and the whole DMV area catching Caps fever, Lovettsville, Virginia Mayor Robert J. Zoldos proposed to city council a name change for his town.
The proposal would see Lovettsville become “Capitalsville” for the next few weeks and on Thursday night said proposal was approved.
More from Patrick Szabo of the Loudon Now.
Zoldos said that as he watched Wednesday night’s game at Velocity Wings across the street from the Lovettsville Town Office, he wasn’t expecting the Capitals to pull off a blowout against the Lightning like they did. In fact, he was too nervous to even write the resolution for tonight’s meeting until after the team won. “The game was just incredible,” he said.
To make the renaming more official, Zoldos has been talking with Capitals staff about the possibility of hosting a viewing party for one of the seven final games and, if the Capitals win the cup, a small parade with a few players.
He’s also working with Vice Mayor Jim McIntyre to have a “Welcome to Capitalsville” sign made before the Capitals’ first game against Vegas—offering a special photo op for residents and visitors. “They’ve got to have something that proves they were [in Capitalsville],” he said.
Lets hope we can ceremoniously call Washington, DC something like “Championsville” in a couple weeks.
