Caps Fan to Get Tattoo of Brett Connolly Getting a Tattoo for Retweets

Washington Capitals fan Tyler Duchaine wants to take his fandom to a whole new level and will do so if he reaches his goal on Twitter. Many Capitals fans have Caps-inspired tattoos and with the team winning the Stanley Cup last season, some fanatics have the Cup or “Stanley Cup champions” tattooed. Duchaine wants his next ink art to be more unique though. In addition to fans, Capitals players got tattoos two nights after winning the Cup during their party around D.C. that weekend. Duchaine wants not just a tattoo of Brett Connolly but a tattoo of Brett Connolly getting a tattoo.

You can follow and retweet the tweet here @tylerduchaine. His goal is to reach 10,000 retweets. As of this writing he’s got less than 9,000 tweets to go. The tweet was posted at 12:45 p.m. on Sunday.

After the tweet blew up, he responded under the tweet saying, “Screw it. I’ll do it for 1,000”. With 1,213 retweets as we’re typing this, we can’t wait to see what it looks like!

Chris Kuc of The Athletic asked Connolly after morning skate about the fan wanting to get the tattoo of him. Connolly responded, “That’s crazy. Hey, he’s up to 1,000.”

Duchaine hasn’t tweeted out a pic of his new tattoo yet but we’re sure we’ll see it soon enough.
