Someday I’ll go to a hockey team’s Casino Night. Someday I’ll have $250 to spend on an event that doesn’t involve either Vegas or getting a tan. Or they could move these to Vegas and I could do all three at once.
The Caps and Islanders hosted casino nights last night. The events benefit wonderful charities, but “Crush on Mike Green” is not a deductible category on my taxes. At least not when “Married, Filing Jointly.” Perhaps in Canada you can claim “Pretending I Can Count While John Tavares Deals Blackjack.”
Unrelated to casino night but very related to things we love, here’s the Winnipeg Sun story about John sending a signed jersey to an 11-year old Isles fan who was bullied at a Winnipeg Jets game. Perfect guy is perfect.
The Caps don’t have a story or photos up yet. They must’ve partied harder and the web team is sleeping it off. Their Instagram managed a few photos:
But luckily the DC news was up early – Fox 5 TV – Caps Casino Night.
The event featured Ovi’s blue jacket:
And the Brouwer Rangers modifying their suits into Power Tuxes. Helmets and all. No offense NYI, but this looks more like our kind of party.
Hoping for a more in-depth analysis of Mike Green’s hair in tonight’s broadcast.
