But in this sports blog world of sportsbloggery, it’s certainly an interesting development and warrants a brief mention. If for no other reason it at least affords me — and I imagine many of you readers — the chance to nostalgically look back upon my youth. And to type the words “Please Hammer don’t hurt ‘em.” Moving on, MC Hammer was actually in attendance for the Washington Capitals home opener on Tuesday night at the Verizon Center in D.C.  The Caps were facing off against the Winnipeg Jets but the real news is that MC HAMMER WAS AT THE GAME! Duh. Photos follow. AOL co-founder Steve Case posed with Hammer at the game, a photo that S
