Sexy Semin, a Plush hockey jersey and more

Nationals Inquisition posted this photo of a Nats fan at the Tigers game wearing a Tony Plush Regina Pats jersey. You won't likely see a better jersey this week. Or lifetime.

If I'm not mistaken, the owner appears to be Nats superfan Hugh Kaufman, owner of an Obama 44 USA Baseball jersey, and of a rubber chicken. He's just the sort of person who would blend two sports and two cities and two names to create magic.

And it reminded me that I have a bunch of saved Twitpics and the like, mostly concerning the Caps, that I've been meaning to publish. By this point many of them are a week or so old, but magic is never out of date.

At this point, I've posted so many Caps jerseys mocking Sidney Crosby that I honestly can't remember whether I've posted this one before. It certainly feels familiar, but they all do. This must be how your grandma feels when that one episode of Murder, She Wrote with the unexpected twist at the end comes on TV. Thanks to Reuven for the pic.

I am positive, however, that I've never posted this one before. Far as I can tell, it's sort of (1) paying homage to a football player (2) with no ties to D.C. (3) and featuring a number with no Washington connection (4). Foul times four. Via @edmorgans.

This one is also new to me. Semin = Sexy. Very, very wrong. Photo by @misschatter, and apologies for blowing it up to such an unsightly degree.

As you no doubt realize, the Caps wore camo jerseys out for warmups last Thursday Friday, in honor of military night. The jerseys were then auctioned off for veteran charities. Great cause, but man, I'm not sure I like the look. Photo via CapsBlog and @capsblog.

Camo, though, is about a trillion times better than Green gimmicky St. Patrick's Day merchandise. It's one thing if you buy one of the "Green" green shirts, but mixing Ovechkin and St. Patrick's Day? Why not have a Jurcina jersey for Bastille Day, or a Boudreau giveaway on July 4th, or a Semin jersey on Boxing Day? (Turns out the Caps are one of the league leaders in St. Patrick's Day apparel. Huge Irish population in P.G., apparently.)

The caption was "The Kid Comes Through My Shredder." Via @VOTL.

Not trying to pick on anyone, but a reader noted this amusing sight during Saturday night's game. That's Brian Pothier's image and number on the ice. He's not on the Caps right now.

And then there were these three Stars fans sitting behind the Washington Dallas bench on Monday. Nice neckwear. Thanks to Toni L. Sandys for this shot.

Not sure I understand the pot leaf necklaces...

Those Stars fans are behind the Washington bench, not the Dallas bench. Unless there is some weird chinese fire drill going on involving the players on the bench and the coaches. That'd actually be cool.

Looks like your shredder has a cupholder. Must be marketed to female buyers.

Yeah, they were definitely behind the Caps bench - they kept getting screen time every time they showed Boudreau. Real lookers, too.

In the middle of the game, a friend of mine texted me whether I got a look at the ugly fat pig sitting behind Gabby. Now I know what he was talking about.

Regarding the Pothier ice projection - we saw that from 412 and I put it on Twitpic ( Thought they should have done that for last night's game...
