It’s a new season, I have some new seats and some new shoes that are nearly in Capitals colors. So far I like them all. The new seats are great. The new shoes are just kinda silly fun. The new season is…I don’t know…kind of a bit like it was before. Bits from here (like the super cool Alex Semin goal that I didn’t get to see until later because of all the people standing up in front of me) and there (like the awful power play early) and the other place (the awe inspiring power play late and a return of Game Over Green). All’s well that ends well, though, right? And the Washington Capitals ended well enough with a win against the Carolina Hurricanes in overtime to start the 2011-12 season.
Also be sure to read the regular places for recaps like Japer’s Rink, Russian Machine, District Sports Page (formerly Caps News Network) and the all the others that aren’t listed here. Also be sure to check out Capitals Outsider for a time lapse video view that’s close to the same as my more regular seats and where most of my photos come from.
I still have to get my photos under control. Too many and too long to get them here. See them below or on flickr.
