It was a busy week for the Capitals…well, actually, no it wasn’t....
A Year of Awesomeness in Blogging
Capitals Outsider would like to take this opportunity to pat the Caps blogosphere on the back, including ourselves, and give out awards for Excellence in Caps Blogging with the 2010 Cappies.
We would also like to thank several bloggers for their continued support, including Adam and Zach Best at Fansided, D.C. Pro Sports Report, J.P. at Japer’s Rink, Mike Hoffman at Examiner.com, Abram, Dan and Paul at DC Sports Box, Greg Wyshynski at Yahoo, Dan Steinberg at The Post, Daniel Victor at TBD.com, the stooges at Gunaxin, Keara Dowd who joined our staff, casting queen Suzanne Kang, CapsSnaps, Caps in Pictures, and Cheryl Nichols for photos, everyone on our blogroll, our Twitter followers, and the couple dozen people who actually like us on Facebook (hint hint). Also we want to give a special thanks to Ted Leonsis and Nate Ewell for making the Capitals the most media-accessible team in the NHL.
Before we get to the Cappie Awards, Capitals Outsider will narcissistically look back at its own greatest hits of 2010.
