Wave that Flag
Our heartfelt thanks to Caps team mascot Slapshot and the entire front office for the warm and gracious welcome they extended to the PuckBuddys. Seen here at last night’s game before the player intros, our feathered friend lets his freak flag fly.
This kind gesture was rather surprising considering a somewhat awkward run-in we had with Slapshot a while back @ Verizon. He was his usual playful and animated self, mugging and hamming it up for the fans on the concourse before puck drop. I pushed a few 10 year-olds out of the way to get my picture taken with him (her?): “Hey Screech — Over here!”
Ever see a team mascot mime “Loser?” (He doesn’t like having his beak yanked either).
Gay Go Caps !
