From My 7 Year Old: Thanks DJ King!

My seven year old daughter’s favorite Washington Capital is DJ King. I’m not sure why and neither is my wife, but that’s okay. We don’t care why. Before every game, she asks, “Is DJ King playing tonight?” In pre-game warm ups, she’ll sometimes spot him and start jumping up and down yelling, “I see DJ King! I see DJ King.” It’s just really cute.

Why does it matter? The Capitals annual season ticket holder party was at Six Flags America tonight. As she was waiting in line with me to get John Carlson’s autograph, King walked by to his autograph station (shared with Troy Brouwer). I pointed him out to my daughter and she just watched him walk by with that look that little kids get. I asked if she wanted his autograph…and she went off with my wife to get his autograph. It really made her day more than words can really say. I think it was a bigger deal to her than when Alex Ovechkin asked her “Do you feel pain?” when he signed her cast at the Caps Convention last year. It was cool. I’m happy for her and wanted to say thanks to DJ King on her behalf.
