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.)
Two Caps Ladies... favorites, Brads and Brooks
So here at Caps Ladies… we’re all about giving the love where the love is due. And this year, our love is mostly going straight to the Caps, but some other guys need some support.
It’s usually at this time of year that we start rooting for the Hershey Bears, since many of our Caps guys are sent down when the season is done. Sadly, the Bears are out of the Calder Cup playoffs, kicked out by the Baby Pens (ugh!) but the Caps ECHL affiliate, the South Carolina Stingrays are still in for a chance to win the Kelly Cup!
And with that, here’s some Bears and ‘Rays winners from the ladies…
First and foremost, some love has to go out to Ben Clymer. He was sent down to Hershey from the Caps earlier this season and we were quite bummed at the development. Clymer was a definite source of eye candy and provided us with entertainment at the uniform unveiling last summer that we still get a chuckle out of, to this day.
And can’t forget Eric Fehr who’s been up and down between the Bears and the Caps all season but is just so dang tall and cute that you can’t help but love him.
And last, but not least Mathieu Beaudoin.
He played for Ohio State and graduated with a Business degree. A three-time Ohio State scholar-athlete and academic all-Big Ten selection, this kid has got it going on.
And now on to the ‘Rays
He’s got great scruff and played for the Screaming Eagles (QMJHL) . Need I say more?
He’s a local boy that went North for school (U-Mass Amherst) and although he did play against the Ladies favorite team, the BU Terriers, he’s now on the right side of the law and kicking butt at Hershey and down south. Don’t you just want to get a beer with Mr. Werner?
