How the Caps have changed D.C.
You've already read 713 stories about how much different today's Caps are than yesteryear's Caps. Like, standing-room only tickets for the playoffs? That's a big difference.
But maybe nothing was so stark for me as reading this message-board dialog a friend just sent over. This was from his poker group, in June of 2007. That was less than three years ago. Names have been changed.
Rich: Hey all. If you'd like to pick up a game or two (or more) to see the Caps next season, let me know. My brother and I have season tickets, and they're great seats - about 15 rows behind the Caps bench, almost center ice.
Cost is $145 per game (two seats). Let me know if you're interested and how many games you'd want. We're pretty good about getting you particular games/teams that you'd like to see.
Mike: Sweet! I would like to order zero seats for the upcoming season. Is there any way to lock up the same amount of seats for the next 10-15 years? I just want to make sure to get my schedule straight.
Alan: Hey Mike, I was thinking of getting the same plan you want. Maybe I'll see you at the games.
Paul (who is now a Caps STH): Rich, let me know when you are looking to unload some WNBA tickets.
Scott: I'll take 2 tickets.
Scott: Oh wait! You have hockey tickets! I'm sorry. I thought you had ballet tickets. Hockey is like watching paint dry.
