Caps fans should be united during this playoff run Some of you won’t know what this post is about, but if you’re a hockey fan in this area, particularly a Caps fan like I am, you know exactly what this is about. I absolutely despise elitist caps fans. I swear this is the only hockey market in the country where the fans get mad at the other fans for simply not having followed this team since the 1970′s and not knowing what an “eagles nest” ticket is. You thumping your chest and talking about “bandwagon” fans gives the real fans a bad name. SHUT UP! Just because you know who Peter Bondra and Joe Juneau are doesn’t make you more educated or entitled to being a FAN of a team. Shut up and watch the damn game. At this point with the Caps in the playoffs, all fans should be united in sticking together and supporting the team. Your knowledge of the team’s history has ZERO relevance towards the present and by no means does it affect the outcome of the game. Why don’t you just embrace the fact that this a good team with a tremendous core and their popularity is bringing more credibility and national exposure towards this franchise? Give it a damn break. Okay, pointless and meaningless rant over. LET’S GO CAPS! Related posts: Why Caps Fans Shouldn’t Panic Great 8: Ovechkin Shirt For Caps Fans 4 Reasons Why The Caps are on Fire

  • I was a season ticket holder for the first ten seasons. I had just moved to the DC area from Philly. The first Caps game I attended was a pre-season game against the Habs. Halfway through the third period, some guy in the section infront of me vented his unhappiness that the Caps were not winning by shouting"What's a matter with you? Their just a bunch of damned Canadians!". That was in 40years ago....nice to know that Caps fans are still just as stupid!!!!!!!
