The Caps Metallica Experience, in Pictures
Ok, so there weren't necessarily hundreds of high-quality Caps-Metallica pics flying into my inbox, but we'll take what we can get. Some more notes on last night's show, featuring a guest appearance from noted metal fan Alex Ovechkin.
1) Yes, Donald Brashear was also there. Apparently it was his second Metallica show, having also seen the group in Quebec City.
2) Longtime reader Colin wrote in to say that, as he was leaving, he saw Mike Green buying t-shirts. And then came an e-mail from Tyler, who yanked the above photo from Facebook. Indeed, Green appears to value the Metallica clothing line.
3) This photo of Ovechkin came from reader Andrew Merewitz. Thanks, Andrew. And jeez, makes the show look pretty exciting.
4) And this one came from reader Taylor, along with a story.
"This is a really bad picture, as you will see," Taylor wrote, "but it is Ovechkin at Metallica last night. I met them (Ovie and Green) when they were coming in and the woman checking wristbands wouldn't let them in! Ovie had to run off and get some guy to give them wristbands.
Anyway, this pic was during 'Enter Sandman' before the encore, I was a little [excessively happy thanks to fermentable beverages], and there were lights flashing and people moving all over the place. That's why the picture is no good."
I'll beg to differ on that account. I think the photo is a pretty perfect summation of what I was looking for.
