After losing, let's embrace this 'tradition' and get ourselves some Caps-themed golf...
@karlalzner: Please Change Your Twitter Avatar!
Capitals defenseman Karl Alzner is one of the most likable players in the locker room. He is always friendly to the media, including Caps Outsider, and regularly gives fans a peek into his life on Twitter.
Maybe he has a self-deprecating sense of humor about hockey teams losing in the playoffs, or maybe this avatar is a genuine look into his offseason interests. Whatever the case may be, we ask him kindly: Golf sucks and please change it back to hockey, Karl!
UPDATE: Alzner responded on Twitter:
I like golf, and my avatar. Will not be changing until I take a good new picture. Probably golfing again. :) #mwahahaha
