possible happiest day ever….

Tomorrow is the Opening Day for the Washington Nationals. The Caps also have a game tomorrow night, which most likely means active players will NOT be at the 1:05 game (possible but unlikely).

HOWEVER it does mean that there is a slight possibility that Mike Green and Tom Poti will be around. Sweet baby jesus I might not be able to sleep tonight.

The thought of even being able to see to see this in person will keep me up all night

that is all.

well that didn’t end as we expected

Caps have played the Habs three times this season and two of those three games were some of the best hockey I’ve seen.

Tonight’s game was a bit different. First period reminded me of the team we all fell in love with. And there were some great looks in the 3rd (missed the 2nd due to concourse food search) but they just couldn’t seal the deal. It wasn’t the cardiac Caps, rather the prude on prom night.

Came thisclose to giving us what we wanted and in the end denied us the pleasure of winning. Although we did get this, serious heavy petting by Ovie:

My boy Greenie got an assist tonight with pretty stick handling pass in front of the net to Old Man Knubs. swoooooooooon.

But, with this all said, as a BU girl I can’t believe we lost to Brian FREAKING Gionta. That kid just can’t leave us alone. It’s like the varisty cheerleader from the rival town winning homecoming queen. NOT COOL.

All I want for Christmas…

..is for the Caps to do this one day

There is nothing I don’t love about this post. Save for wishing it was just a little bit longer. Or more videos of cute hockey players lip syncing to the best of Mariah Carey.

Notable  notes:

  • A large percentage of the Belfast Giants went to college.
  • An even larger percentage are alums/former players of Hockey East Schools, including UNH, Maine and Providence.
  • The scene stealers are two guys from the US…the opener from NJ, #8 Tim Cook and the giant dancing elf, #33 from Mike Hoffman.
  • My guilty pleasure is the hair-brush-singing/ hallway dancing leader #33 Craig Peacock. He’s only 22 but sweet baby Jesus he’s got some moves and sweet forearms.

And on that note, I’m going to bed.

lots to catch up on

It’s August. Development game camp has been over for just under a month and training camp is on the horizon. Contracts have been signed for the 09-10 season. Some of the guys are gone to greener, or more luctrative pastures. Many of our guys are recovering from surgeries, illnesses and injuries from the grueling playoff season.

But one thing is certain for all of our guys: they are ready for for the season. And, so are we.

Our calendars are cleared. Our Caps Convention tickets are purchased. Hundreds of photos have alreay been put online, right Cvandy?

We’re ready. Are you?

The Afternoon After

It always seems to come down to one game, doesn’t it? We’ve all got thoughts to share on this incredible 2008-2009 Capitals season and the horrific train wreck of a game that ended it, but it’ll take some time to process everything. I think I’ve gone through all of the stages of grief (what are there, five? seven?) and I’ll be roller-coastering through them again many times in the coming days.

But hey, that’s how we started the season – with a team party at Six Flags.

So here’s to the players, the coaches, the owners and most importantly the fans. To our season ticket holder family. To the Caps Ladies…

And to Brooks Laich and Matt Bradley, stay out of trouble during the summer. We see you giggling, Laich. No funny business! (Unless you call us first.)

All-Star Break roundup

We here at Caps Ladies… are looking back on the first half of the season with smiles all around. Our boys are doing excellent, despite some trying injuries keeping our best guys out of the line-up and some confusion with what exactly each player should be doing (HELLO Mike Green, I love you and all but PLEASE be a defense men if only for 80% of the game…)

We all waited, with baited breath, to see what our dear Ovie would do for the skills competition and definitely were not disappointed. Although this Caps Lady… was watching in a crowded bar, sans sound, so I’m not sure what the announcers thought of this shot, but we in the bar loved it!

I have to say, watching it again I still laugh out loud and do enjoy the “Superman” music. Ovie DEFINITELY is a superman!

And the kid continued to wow the audience DESPITE not being voted an All-Star starter (Really? People this is crazy!) He won the damn game for the East in a shootout. Of course he did, he’s that kind of player.¬† And not to mention he had two goals and two assists.

We love Ovie in DC and just hope that someday the rest of the NHL-fan-nation will come around and see what this kid’s got to offer fans of the sport and fans of the players. He’s got something special and us Caps Ladies… can’t wait to see him on Saturday, back in the Verizon Center with his faithful fans.

Dear Caps: Please come home

To my dearest Capitals,

Please please please come home! We miss you. We miss your smiling faces and rough hits. We love the opportunity to see you take on the Western Conference but don’t enjoy seeing you not coming away with the W. We think it’s wonderful that you’re giving those western states at glimpse at your amazingness (and HOTNESS) but really, they can’t appreciate it. They would just be band wagoners in this train of love for the Caps and really, you don’t want that? Especially when you’ve got a dedicated fan base back home, including three lovely ladies waiting for your return.

Wednesday night can’t come soon enough.
