Caps-Penguins images from the crowd

Caps fans didn't herald Sidney Crosby's arrival this week with any special stunts. There were no new Crosby anthems, no pacifier giveaways or t-shirt tables. That's not to say, though, that you couldn't wander through the concourse and see some curious sights, some related to Pittsburgh and some not.

I've said it before and I'll say it again: no crowd in D.C. sports has more personalized weirdness than a Caps crowd. Some of these you might have seen before. Heck, some of these I've probably published before. Long-term memory issues. Some may be objectionable on taste or humor levels; others deserve nothing but praise. I'll allow you to be the judge.

Hi Dan and Caps fans - just remember...

Crosby - Gold Medalist and Stanley Cup Champion....Ovechkin - Not so much.

Hey popopo...just remember you are reading a story on the WASHINGTON Post website. Don't expect to see anything positive about the Pens/Crosby on here, you may want to read a Pittsburgh newspaper or blogger for that.

And the Carlson USA jersey is epic.

Your use of dashes and ellipses is tremendous. But - just remember...

Ovechkin - first place team...this is not 2009 or Vancouver... he is a man - Crosby...not so much

All great shirts, especially Crosbiatch. It will be great to play the Pens in the semis or Eastern finals, depending on if they continue to suck up the joint and fall to the four seed (where Ottawa could knock them out early).

Just about playoff time...

Should the Caps even want to meet the Pens in the playoffs?

So many jersey fouls. The worst is Caps jersey with Hall of Famer Canadiens Richard 9. Pure hockey basphemy.

A man who knocks down a russian female = loser.

Have to agree with Wilbon here. Wash media took a pass on covering that story.

Thanks goose33 for props on the grammar - Ooh, and the way you talk about Ovie (he's a man) makes me think you have more than a sporting interest in him. Good for you.

popopo = poopoo :)

hey poopoo -

just a reminder:

Ovie's mom = gold medalist
crybaby's mom = not so much

You know, this whole "jersey foul" thing is getting tiresome. If someone wants to spend their money on a weird combination of jerseys/numbers/names, it's their money and their business. Anyone complaining about it needs to get a life and worry about something else.

I hate Pens. TROLLS.

yeah i don't know of any other team that purposely threw in the last 10-15 games of a season so they could get the first draft pick. what a bunch of whiner, i mean winners there...

The fact that Penquin fans log on to a Washington Post website to spew their ignorance shows how obsessed they are with the Caps. They won't admit it, BUT THEY KNOW, the Caps are a better team now!

"Crosby for 2012 Canadien Olympic Diving Team"

HAHAHAHA. I need that shirt although that's a really disturbing photo.
