Caps Ticket Holders Who Root for Others

Posted May 2, 2009

img_1112What’s a fan to do? They grow up outside the area, rooting for a team that’s not the Caps. At some point in their life, they move to the Washington D.C. area and still have a thirst for hockey, so they buy season tickets to the closest team (that isn’t Philadelphia).
For Marc Laslow, of Dover, Delaware, the Hurricanes scoring twice against the Devils in the final minutes of Game 7 couldn’t have worked out better for him. Laslow has been a Capitals season ticket holder for the past two seasons, and he happens to be a Penguins fan. He drives in from Dover to watch the games.
So, with the Caps and Penguins facing off in the playoffs for what seems to be the 50th time, fans like Laslow have the best of both worlds as he quenches his thirst for live hockey, but also gets to see the team he wants to see.
And if the Penguins lose? I’m sure he’ll be covering up that Crosby shirt he’s wearing with that Mike Green jersey.
