I look a bit delighted in that photo above don’t I? Honestly it was a fun event, but they must have caught us at a particularly joyful moment. Capitals fans were invited today to give us their most creative high five, and receive an autograph from Caps legend Rod Langway. For their effort they were also entered to win 5 tickets to a future Capitals game and received some sweet foam hands.

Capital One was the sponsor of the event, so to thank them, we’ll post their verbiage below:

The launch of Capital One Bank’s High Yield Checking gives people in the greater Washington, D.C., region good reason to “High Five” now that they can earn five times the national average interest rate on their checking account.

Any interest from a checking account seems like a good thing in this economy, so five times the national average certainly doesn’t suck. By the way the fans lined up, we’ll assume they were really interested (ha!) in the new checking account, or Rod Langway. Since I had such quality time with Rod, I took the opportunity to conduct an informal interview with the Hall of Fame defenseman, and will have that article coming up soon.

My favorite High Five of the afternoon came from the cute couple below. The young lady was a really good sport (for a Red Wings fan).

If you missed your chance to enter tonight, Capital One has you covered with an additional chance to win:
