A Moment of Remembrance


More Love For The Capitals’ Classic Sweaters

Yesterday I waxed rhapsodic about the return of a Capitals throwback. I contacted The Washington Capitals regarding what the team will wear for the 2011 Winter Classic, and they understandably have no comment on which jersey (or pants for that matter) the Caps will wear on New Year’s Day. But if looks at the previous […]

Actually, Alex is no longer an undergrad. (Congrats, graduate!) Anyway, to get a hot topic kicked off this offseason, we thought we’d raise the spectre of a big trade: Do the Caps […]

This Would Be Devotion by a Bears Fan

When it comes to admiration for former Caps’ mucker-agitator Lou Franceschetti, we’re at the front of the cheering section, and while it’d be super cool to own his Hershey Bears’ sweater from 1980 — a Calder Cup winning season — $15,000 for it? Fifteen large?  If you’ve got that kinda cash to part with on […]
