The DC Adventure!

Tomorrow, bright and early, I will be leaving for The DC Adventure.  I can’t decide which part I’m more excited about.  Washington is one of my favorite places on the planet, so the thought of going there AND seeing the Caps play is really exciting.

I may or may not live-blog the car ride down there since I finally got myself a car charger for my phone.  That depends on how bored I get/how obnoxious I want to be.  Stay tuned.

I’ll be at the game tomorrow night which will supposedly be shown on Versus….?  Like I said in a previous post, I think I’ll have an embarrassing sign with me.  I plan on making it during the Sabres game tonight.  I have no shame.  (But don’t worry, it doesn’t involve marriage proposals.  So I guess I do have a little shame.)

Friday we’re doing all the Washington monuments and memorials and a few museums.  We’ve already had several heated debates within the family about which ones to go to, since some of us have seen certain museums more often than others.  I hope to hit up the Holocaust Museum for visit #4 because that one never gets old and I’d like to see the Smithsonian Museum of American History since out of the Smithsonians I’ve seen that one the least.  Actually, I’m not sure if I’ve ever been there.  Hmm.  I can’t wait to see the cherry blossoms.  I’ve already been there one other time when they were in bloom and if you haven’t then trust me on this:  it’s one of those things you’ve got to see before you die.

We talked about going to a Caps practice if they have one but nixed it.  Oh well, that’ll give me an excuse to come back for a game.

I fully plan on taking a picture with the Capstronaut if he’s there.  100%.  I will also be getting one with Slapshot.  I’m bringing my coupon from the Caps Kids Club (where the kids get in the game!) to redeem for my Slapshot bobblehead.  I may or may not lie about whether the bobblehead is for me or my “younger sister,” but if they ask for my membership ID (Yeah, I know.  I have an ID card and everything.  It’s legit.) I’ll have to be honest with them.

The Caps have looked none too good lately and I’m thinking that 1.) it’s because Brooks was out and he’ll be returning tomorrow night so no worries! and 2.) little a-holes, slumping right before I come to a game.

Several members of my family are a little disappointed to learn that instead of seeing Ilya Kovalchuk and the Thrashers, they’re seeing the Ex-Sabres.  I’m just excited to see Zachity Zach.

Alex Ovechkin WILL have a crappy game tomorrow night.  He will not register any points, he’ll look terrible, people will scratch their heads.  I promise.  It always happens when I’m at the games.  I guess it’s three cheers for consistency.

The Sabres better beat the snot out of Florida because Ottawa is breathing down their necks and they just need to get the points and lock this baby up.

  1. Breathing down their necks? 5 points back having played two more games? I hope you’re just using hyperbole. Buffalo’s sched is also way easier.
