Caps Fans Invade Raleigh
After all the computer cells I killed by writing about Pittsburgh fans in D.C., it's only fair to point out that several hundred Capitals fans showed up in Raleigh for Saturday's loss to the Hurricanes. Who says D.C. fans don't travel? The trip was organized by the Caps Fan Club, and these being Caps fans, there was at least one Crosby Sucks jersey, at least one playoff mohawk and at least one red cape.
Also showing up for the pre-game tailgate: Slapshot, Joe Beninati, Steve Kolbe and Brett Leonhardt. The latter, as usual, signing autographs.
The trip was organized with the support of a 'Canes Booster Club, and the seething subplot included a possible playoff meeting between the two squads, when perhaps they'd be less likely to break bread together. But after so many dang stories about Pittsburghers in D.C., and all the people who hate and are hated by Caps fans, this was just a nice sunny day in Raleigh.

In other Caps news, 289, the official design guru of the sports Internet, has a new Ovie shirt out. Trust me, you want it. See below.
