Everyone remembers the joyous days that followed the Capitals’ first Stanley Cup. The team attended a Nationals game where Alex Ovechkin threw out two ceremonial first pitches. The team then took the championship trophy to the Georgetown Waterfront where they invented the Cup stand and swam in the fountains.
One small, but overshadowed part of the night was when several members of the team, who appeared to be inebriated, got tattoos.
In an article in the Players’ Tribune, Capitals goaltender Braden Holtby shared more details about that night and recalled what TJ Oshie said to him at the waterfront.
“We’re doing it, dude. I’m getting a Wario tattoo,” Oshie said according to Holtby’s article. “I’M GETTING A WARIO TATTOO! HOLTS! CALL THE TATTOO GUYS!”
