Caps Super Bowl Sunday memories

There is not a lot to feel good about in Caps land on this Super Bowl Sunday.  The team left 2 precious points on the table and now we anxiously wait hoping the other shoe doesn’t drop on the Brooks Laich injury watch.  While good news on Laich’s knee and a few wins could quickly turn this empty feeling around, for the moment it’s a lot easier to look back on Caps Super Bowl Sunday’s of the past rather than dwell on what transpired today.  I have a few vivid memories of Super Bowl Sunday Caps games, both distant and more current.  Here are two of my favorites.

Game misconducts to Kevin Stevens, Lemieux and Jagr in this 6-4 Caps win!

I thought the roof was going to blow off Verizon Center 2 years ago.

Okay, now it’s time to go back to worrying about who is going to be taking faceoffs for this team.  For what it’s worth, I’d be happy to volunteer my services to this undersized bunch.
