Capitals enjoy day with Stanley Cup at Nationals game

5 Comments

It might be some time before Alex Ovechkin relinquishes his grip on the Stanley Cup.

So far, pictures have shown him hoisting it not long after his Washington Capitals won it in Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Final against the Vegas Golden Knights. Hoisting it long into the night in Sin City. Spooning it as he slept on the plane back to D.C. And then lifting it back over his head at every moment since.

He’s like a kid on Christmas Day showing off his prized gift. It’s been pretty fun to watch.

The Capitals were at the Washington National’s baseball game on Saturday, and you can guess what Ovechkin was doing:

And my personal favourite from the afternoon:

The Conn Smythe winner did take a break to throw out the first pitch before the game. And the second pitch, too.

There was also this very bad yet very funny rendition of Queen’s We Are The Champions, complete with beer and a lot of missing words.

On Friday night, the Caps held a private party atop Don Tito, a popular watering hole in Arlington, Va.

The Capitals will hold their formal parade on Tuesday down Constitution Avenue.
