What Caps Fans Looked Like, Game 2
I'm not sure what it is about Saturday afternoon vs. Monday evening, but the fans sure create a lot more photos on the latter occasion. In this case, Caps fans showed many of their zig-zaggy sides. A selection. Most of the names are vanished, due to a misplaced notebook.
We'll start above, which shows that Caps fans are attuned to current events. This couple slipped on their Swine Flu masks as they entered the arena, and earned plenty of stares, even more so when fans realized the masks carried taunting messages about Crosby and Malkin. More below.
While this is slightly less current, it's still a pleasing mix of Che imagery, an Obamicon and a Tom Green slogan. Bizarre, anyhow, and classic Washington.
And it goes without saying that Caps fans are fascinated by Russian iconography. There are dozens and dozens of Russian national jerseys on the fans, and a certain WJFK host this morning was raving about the Russkies on the Fedorov-Semin-Ovechkin line. Not a line I've seen much of in recent days, but if you've seen one all-Russian line you've seen them all.
This being a sporting event, Caps fans are focused on hair designs. This young chap was already looking plenty fierce, although later in the night the hair was whipped up into a nasty red mohawk. Well done, friend.
Speaking of hair, Caps fans are....weird? The man with the 8 in his hair actually had it shaved by a Penguins fan, who pointed out that he could have easily added a 7 without the Caps fan noticing. Perhaps. Also, the Caps fan has to attend his grandmother's birthday party, but he's promised to keep the 8 in his hair until the end of this playoff run, so he'll be going to grandma's party in a business suit and a ridiculous haircut. As for the red suit, yup, that's red.
Caps fans are shirtless. Next.
And also, Caps fans will wear just about anything in public. And do it proudly, too. Amazing.
Finally, in an unrelated note, it would appear the team has a new beat writer. Combination scribbler and enforcer.
