C-A-P-S CAPS CAPS CAPS!

Washington-Capitals

The Caps ended Friday night with victorious 3-1 win over the Minnesota Wild and luckily a couple girl friends and I were able to witness it live! 🙂  There’s just something about catching a game live; the stadium, the crowd (including the crazies), a good beer and of course your home team fighting for a win.  Hockey in particular is a great sport because though it may be a bunch of guys on skates it’s a fast paced, full contact sport – love the checking and honestly what hockey fan isn’t hoping (at least a little bit) to see a fight?

ROCK THE RED – UNLEASH THE FURY!

Note worthy happenings of the night:

  • Kristin’s first live hockey game – YAY!
  • The cutest little goalie for the kids face-off  – he couldn’t get up and had to be carried off of the ice when the scrimmage was over, poor kid had too much padding and couldn’t skate.
  • Question of the night – What’s a Wild?  Seriously though, what is it???
  • Two men sitting behind us giving a play by play.  Missed their chance with Versus or Comcast I suppose? 😉
  • CRAZY guys yelling/cheering louder than anyone (I’m talking veins popping out of their necks and all) – they meant business!
  • The goals: M. Green (PPG, 05:39 – 2nd) , B. Pothier (02:00 – 3rd) , B. Laich (EN, 19:23 – 3rd) The saves: S. Varlamov FOR THE WIN!  GO CAPS!
  • ….aaaand meeting a cute guy at the metro station 🙂

The night was a ton of fun and I’m so excited for the next game we have tickets for!
