 Photos of Caps Friends at Verizon Center

We started this blog with a promise to be your eyes on the Washington Capitals and hockey in the area. We’ve been posting tons of player pictures for your pleasure on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. Today we focus on some of the sights we have captured around Verizon Center. Enjoy!

We Caps fans are a passionate group. We also love our rockin’ red ensembles and our signage. As we walk around Verizon Center we meet a lot of people displaying that passion and we thought we would share some of those images while we wait for our next home game.

There were these signs…   vz hough


… and then there were these,  for which we have no comment.

And signs sharing the love for former players: vz green signs

Cute kid signs, in Russian and upside down!


Fans are always great about bringing the Christmas Cheer.  Nate Schmidt even personalized this sweater with a snowman!
