As we celebrate the Capitals' 40th anniversary, let's take a moment to...
Random Jersey: Chris Simon
From Kevin in Frederick, MD, via Straight Cash Homey, comes the Chris Simon Road Blue Jersey. This jersey, along with a bobblehead and hair down to your ass crack, will get you laid in Wawa, Ontario. According to Wikipedia, Chris currently plays for Vityaz Chekhov of the Kontinental Hockey League. Here is a guy who has been involved in trades for Eric Lindros, Keith Jones (yes, that Keith Jones) and Michael Nylander in his career. I remember when he was considered a valuable NHL commodity. Now I think that it was possible that Forsberg and Sakic had more to do with that Cup than Simon.
Have you seen any random jerseys at the phone booth? That guy who still clings to his Pat Peake or John Druce sweater? Someone still sporting the Mike Liut or Byron Dafoe? If so, shoot a picture with your cell phone camera and send it into us at CapitalsOutsider@Gmail.com. We’ll post it on the site, and share your find with the world. If you are wearing something a bit funny on your own back, feel free to send that in as well. Brian Bellows or Esa Tikkanen jersey gets extra props.
