Posts about Washington’s hockey team back when they wore black jerseys for some reason.

It’s broomball night in Arlington

Tonight from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. there is broomball at Kettler Capitals Iceplex in Ballston, Arlington. I think it is going on tomorrow night too. Last week it cost me $7 to play. It is worth noting that a broomball shootout would be an excellent way to settle La Coupe Hauxer.

Also, did you see the new washingtoncaps.com? The NHL has just adopted a league wide template for team sites and I have to say it is an improvement. The old site took too long to load.

Alex Ovechkin was a 1st team All-Star again too.

The new uniforms debut next week at the draft party, I’ll be there for it.

D.C. teams and Richmond

Winning over RichmondTimes-Dispatch
A look from Richmond’s paper of record about what kind of marketing Washington teams are doing in Virginia’s capital. In short, the Redskins are very active down there while the Wizards are getting more active. The Capitals focus most of their out of town marketing on Baltimore, but have a little bit of history in Richmond. D.C. United has a friendly relationship with the Richmond Kickers. The Nationals want to expand their reach there seeing it as the “largest out of town source for fans.” In a more perfect world, they’ll be able to snag the city’s AAA team from Atlanta, but don’t count on it.
