At some point soon, the Capitals anniversary posts will stop, but today is not that day.
On this very nice day of 6/9, we are celebrating the anniversary of when Capitals players visited Nationals Park, made bad decisions in Georgetown, and became legends.
It’s the one-year anniversary of fountain day.
For this exercise, because there is literally no amount of time available to compile all of the hilarity online, I’m going to hit you with classics in tweets, links, and RMNB stories. Enjoy!
I had the privilege of being on the field to cover the first pitch at Nats Park and it was wild. This marked the Capitals first public event with the Stanley Cup and it was evident the team had not stopped celebrating since winning two nights prior.

This is the best interview of 2018.@masnKolko asks Ovi what it's like to be in front of this many D.C. sports fans after winning the Stanley Cup.

After the Nationals game, the Capitals headed down to the Georgetown Waterfront. They invented the iconic Cup Stand on this day. And then they ended up in the fountains.

After the fountain swimming, several Capitals players including TJ Oshie, Braden Holtby, Jakub Vrana, Brett Connolly, and Andre Burakovsky headed down to Tattoo Paradise to commemorate the Caps Stanley Cup forever.
And now this story turns bizarre as there was some Russian collusion in plain sight! A contingent of celebrating Capitals players including Alex Ovechkin and Dmitry Orlov ended up in Cafe Milano where they took a photo with the first family, Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner.

One year ago today: While the Caps winning the Cup was one of the greatest moments in my life, I think celebrating with TJ Oshie and the actual Cup edges it out. Always thought the Caps would eventually win it, but this moment was never in even my wildest dreams. pic.twitter.com/rznfNM9BAN

The legendary day ended with all of us on Instagram, laughing and loving Jakub Vrana’s Instagram Story documenting his night.
What a day.
