Twitter Celebrates: Overtime!

Posted March 9, 2012

In case you missed it, last night was a little taste of sweet Caps nostalgia as Alex Ovechkin scored in overtime against the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Ovechkin: "))))))))))!!!"

Verizon shook, TVs and children were thrown, and of course, Twitter exploded (RIP Fail Whale).  Given the recent disappointments of Washington’s usually overachieving team, we can’t be sure of when this might happen again.  Heck, we might not even make the playoffs.  So how about we indulge a little with how crazy y’all went last night.
