Dawn and I are going to our first Caps game tonight in San Jose.
Dawn will be wearing the aforementioned Ovechtrick head-to-toe ensemble. And she’s bringing me Caps gear. I might even wear it. At the very least I have consented to a red & white hoodie (from BU, gotta keep some of my dignity). But I ask you… how did this happen?
And at the beginning of March, I am moving to Maryland. The fantastic Mr. Pants made my day today by getting us tickets to the Oilers @ Caps on March 9. Date night! I am so excited. Mr. Pants has also discovered the joys of Caps hockey in HD (for free!) at our new apartment. And my new office is 1.5 miles from the Verizon Center.
Fidget probably won’t even play in San Jose, since the Muppets are still banging around inside his brain. But I will probably cheer for the Caps – or at least not against them. Is it loyalty to Dawn? The urge to defend against someone throwing debris at her Ovi-clad backside? HBO’s 24/7? Or is this blog turning me into a Caps fan?! Just a tiny little bit only during non-conference games?
Somebody get Crosby – I’m going to need an exorcism. This cannot be allowed to go on. I still want the Caps to lose, I’d just prefer if they do it in the post-season and to the Pens. I’ve never lived/worked so close to a team and it has to be my mortal enemy? I’m going all Annakin Skywalker over here.
PS: The Caps scored 7 goals to beat Anaheim (who had 6) last night. Did they save any for Dawn?Tags: Chicago Blackhawks, Evgeni Malkin, jonathan toews, mike green, niklas backstrom, pittburgh pengiuns, Sidney Crosby, washington capitals
