Washington Capitals fan Cayce Campbell recently saw a clever tweet by Kevin of Maple Leafs Hot Stove. Kevin grouped Maple Leafs players together in six different houses and asked his followers who they’d want to be quarantined with.
“I knew people were throwing around ‘What player would you want to be quarantined with?’ for a while but when I saw this one, I kinda wanted to try my hand and do it for my favorite team and make up my ideal houses,” she said.
So Cayce created one of her own for the Washington Capitals and it’s been wildly popular online.
Each house has a distinct personality and every Caps fan would identify differently. For instance, I hope House 5, which I’m nicknaming the Russia House, has some room in it because I like joking around, having a lot of high-end skill, and playing videogames.
As for why Slapshot is in that house, Cayce said it’s because “it was an ode to Kuzy and his old Traktor Chelyabinsk mascot officiating his wedding.”
That’s so clever, Cayce!
“I tried to split up some of the bigger named guys so every house had a fair shot!” Cayce said. “I would definitely say House 3 is the most popular choice though. People really love the 4th line.”
Cayce, who became a hockey fan a few years ago, is having a blast with all the interaction she’s receiving on Twitter.
“Thanks to everyone sharing it and participating in this,” she said. “I was so happy the Caps one took off and people are having a lot of fun with it during such a depressing time in life.”
So, you guys, which Capitals House would you live in during the quarantine? Tell us in the comments below.
