The Caps, fist pumping

By Dan Steinberg

HBO 24/7 - Capitals Celebrate Jersey Shore Style from Greg Wyshynski on Vimeo.


I mentioned this in my rundown of 24/7's second Caps episode, but it probably deserves a post of its own. When the Caps finally broke their epic losing streak with that comeback in Ottawa, they celebrated in exactly the way you'd expect: by laughing and fist-pumping their way through a wretched piece of dance music made famous by a Jersey Shore cast member.

Now, we all know that Alex Ovechkin's iPod rules that room, so I have to assume he was primarily responsible for that abomination. But the smiles sort of compensate for the beat, all in all.

Overall, this was probably the second most effective Caps scene from the episode, trailing only Mike Knuble's dressing room speech. But this was definitely the best PG-rated scene.

(Via SB Nation DC and Puck Daddy.)

I just saw a bunch of Euro's looking goofy on camera. Not a good vision of men fist pumping together as they are getting undressed.

Yup, Laich must be German and Perrault is from France I think. Spot on analysis.

I love the Caps, but man... let's get them a new victory song pronto.

Just a heads up: based on prior comments, PensRule is a 13-yr-old who has yet to discover "irony," either naturally or by reading anything in English class that would point him in that direction.

He takes everything literally: hence, for him, the Bog is literally a "bog." (Figuratively, literally, of course.)

Caps breaking 8 game losing streak + Pauly D song + fist pumping = the greatest thing I have ever seen on TV

I guess it bummed PensRule because it didn't live up to the scenes in the Pens' locker room. I imagine there's a lot of nutpunching going on there, with Crosby coming from behind and all. =X
