The Caps won. Twice! It’s sad how exciting this is, but we are taking what we can get. The last time they had back-to-back wins, no one had even heard of Tebowing and everyone in New England still liked Gisele.
Even better: I got to see Mike play Friday night, for the first time since October 22! This long-distance relationship was really bumming me out. The Habs fans next to us at the pre-game skate were trying to translate “headgehog” on their phones and wondering what the crap Gator and I were laughing at. Mike’s hair really is astounding.
It’s lovely to see him out there quarterbacking the power play – especially the moments he’s sharing the blue like with Brooks. We squee. And Mike must feel pretty good if he’s hitting guys like this…
Mike’s logging 20-ish minutes a game. Good thing, because if whatever’s going to happen for the Caps doesn’t happen now, it won’t be happening at all. He says he’s a “little bit tired” but almost 100% [video]. Don’t be modest, Fidget.
Capitals vs. Islanders tomorrow night. Tickets are $20 (seriously), so Gator and I will be seeing that face again. Or was it this face?
Side note: Via Twitter, John Carlson spent yesterday reading The Hunger Games. If someone wings a copy of Catching Fire over the glass with a phone number scrawled on the cover… well, let’s hope he calls Gator.
