Check out the Washington Capitals’ Winter Classic gear in the NHL’s online store (or click here). What’s one of the first “Capitals” items available? That’s right: a Winter Classic Terrible Towel.
Let’s hope the NHL recategorizes the Terrible Towel as a Pittsburgh, not Washington, Winter Classic item, eh? After all, it says “A Pittsburgh Original” right there on the rag towel.
Where can you shop for Capitals and Winter Classic gear instead and be assured of a Pittsburgh-free zone? Head to the Verizon Center and/or Kettler Capitals Iceplex for your Capitals holiday shopping during their Black Friday sale.
The Capitals’ Team Store (the old Modell’s) at the arena will have Black Friday Specials before and during Friday’s Capitals-Lightning tilt; doors open at noon, with a special ”Doorbuster” deal from noon to 1:00 p.m. Kettler, too, will have specials, including discounts on Winter Classic gear.
Click here for the sale details at each location—and let’s hope that on Friday the Capitals give the gift that’s on every fan’s wish list: a W.
