Sunday, December 2 against the Anaheim Ducks, I was invited to Capital One Arena as a guest of the Capital One Cafe Chinatown, a new bank and coffee shop located across the street on 7th and F. Coffee and a live Capitals game? How could I say no?
The day before the event, a Capital One Cafe representative sprung a surprise on me. “Ian, you’re going to ride on the Olympia ice resurfacer during the first intermission.”
“Oh no,” I said. “What happens if people notice me and boo me when I come out?”
No one actually booed me, but it ended up being an amazing experience I’ll never forget.
Let’s just not talk about how I was bad luck and the Caps gave up a four-goal lead and lost.
