Re: CONGRATS TO THE CAPS NHL CHAMPS!

Go CAPS!!!!!!!!  Rock the Red!!!!!!!!  Been wearing red all week long!  This area has gone crazy.  The crowds for the home games were incredible, but they looked equally incredible when the games were only shown on jumbo-trons!!!!!  The aerial shots of the streets looked like New York city on New Years Eve, except most everyone was dressed in red!!!!!!!!!!!  Love that Ovechkin also got the MVP award, but I thought equal credit belonged to their goalie, Holtby.  A very deserving team!!!!!  And awesome fans!!!!!!!!!!!HeartHeart

The real shocker is that while I'll likely never be a fan, I might actually watch the Redskins once in a while with Alex Smith in charge... I've always liked him...

WOW-I cant believe you are going to watch the Redskins once in awhile and you like Alex Smith!!! Cat Surprised--IN SHOCK Smiley Wink


I know the fans gathered at Capital One Arena and the downtown streets surrounding it were clogged and they were just wild... It's been a long time since any of the yokels won a championship, so I'm sure the region will enjoy basking, for once, in the thrill of victory rather than the agony of defeat...  As for Alex Smith... What can I say @SPURT... Alex seems like a good guy, intelligent, well spoken, nice body and the cutest butt in the NFL... Hey, you knew there had to be a reason other than football...

Re: CONGRATS TO THE CAPS NHL CHAMPS!

The celebrations all weekend and yesterday's parade were out of control (only 2 bombs that needed to be bleeped for TV).  Stanley Cup's twitter wrote simply, "Best. Weekend. Ever."

 

I think the Conn Smythe could have gone to either Ovi, Holtbeast (that save!), or Kuzy (scored the OT goal that sent the Pengwhines packing).

 

The media keeps reporting this was DC's first championship since the R*dsk*ns in early 1992, but DC United won 4 MLS cups after that.

 

Now I wonder if there will be a WH visit - DSP has already said he has no interest in going.  Most of the team isn't American anyway, so maybe not as big a furor?
