Caps fans have earned plenty of good press for their strong showing this season, and deservedly so. Also, Friday night's overtime loss to the Sabres nevertheless clinched the Southeast Division title. Also, people from Western New York are universally acknowledged to be loyal friends, great drinking buddies, extreme wits and all-around swell folks, so if you're friends with them it's understandable to revel in their triumphs.

Still, you have to admit that the behavior of two of these people above--who have only just witnessed their team lose a tough home game in overtime--seems a bit odd, considering the distinctive colors and branding of their t-shirts. Maybe they had money on the visitors. Or maybe they were just ready to go home.
