Five Reasons Why You Should Become  A Washington Capitals Fan

RocktheRed

Number 1: The Washington Capitals need all of the help they can get. This franchise has NEVER been to the Conference Finals, much less taken a whiff at the Stanley Cup Trophy, or even dreamt of WINNING the Stanley Cup. So you see? The Caps need your faith and your hope and your love. They need you to push and to pull and to yell and to scream and to scratch and to claw them to the top. In other words, the Caps need help in every sense of the word.

Number 2: The Capitals are playing a really good team in the Tampa Bay Lightning, and everyone has predicted that the Lightning are going to blitzkrieg the Capitals into playoff oblivion. But not so fast; at last check, the Capitals were winning Game One 4-0.

Number 3: The Washington Capitals finally got the monkey off of their back and exorcised their demons, advancing past the Pittsburgh Penguins after dropping their past two playoff series to their rival. Thus the Caps have a feel-good story second only to the Las Vegas Knights, who are drawing fans who don’t even know how to spell hockey. And the Caps need your help because they have their work cut out for them as the Tampa Bay Lightning are favored to win this series, if not the Stanley Cup.

Number 4. The real feel-good story of the 2018 NHL Playoffs would feature the Capitals against the Las Vegans Knights in the Stanley Cup Finals. Now THAT would be must see TV. And Hockey needs all of the fans it can get. So if the Caps can get past the Lightning AND face the aforementioned darling Las Vegas Knights for the Cup, we all should be glued to our TV sets to see sports history in the making.

And Number 5:  The Capitals are the underdogs. And we all know that we all should root, root, root for the underdog. If the Capitals win, it would be an epic story, an upset for the ages, and a turnaround tantamount to the some of the greatest sports stories, ever. And the Caps need your help, not just because they’re any underdog, but especially because they are an underdog that has a small fan base, or more to the point, a small hockey fan base. Let’s face it; Washington DC is a football town. In other words, since the Redskins aren’t playing, the casual DC fan doesn’t know that the Caps even made it this far in the playoffs.

For all these reasons, and more, Rock the Red!

Go Caps!
