Hockey! Hat trick = lots of hats

We went and saw the Washington Capitals beat the Montreal Canadiens 5-4 in overtime at the Verizon Center in DC on Thursday. It was our first American ice hockey game, and it was awesome. Canadiens is not a spelling mistake either - it's the French thing.

Alex Ovechkin scored 4 goals, which is pretty much unheard of; his third made a hat trick, and to our surprise, everyone threw their baseball caps onto the ice! Who are these people? Don't they like their hats enough to keep them? The guys who cleared them off the ice went home with about 50 pre-loved hats...They also had to clear off a burrito which exploded when someone lobbed it onto the ice.

Awesome game, I'm keen to see more hockey. Check out the sweet screens setup and circular LCD panel in the photo - I know where our ticket money went....
