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.

Chris Cleveland: FiCP Twitter King

Don’t know about you – but we can’t watch a Caps game without having Twitter open. And for one of our writers, Chris Cleveland, he can’t watch a game without tweeting.


He is hilarious! He gets right into it and isn’t afraid to call it like he sees it. That usually means he may also start a twitter-war — like with Alan May. Click here to read the full story.

It gets really funny when he tweets for us and answers as himself. Or when other members of the FiCP take him on.


Chris seems to be everywhere and he also tweets about DC sports from his own twitter account, so follow him there too. He has run into Caps players at Wizard’s games. He tweets from Caps practice. And he tweets from Caps home games. He is master of all things social media!!dsc_0326



If you want insider information on getting Caps autographs and photos at Kettler – Chris is your man.

Capitals: Best Tweets and IG of Thursday 4 Jan

We took a ‘it’s toooo cold’ hibernation day and skipped practice this morning. Lots of tweet updates for you below!

Capitals Practice

Niskanen is skating with the team, albeit in a no-contact Jersey. That’s a step forward. He didn’t last the full practice, which is not grand. Coach says all was planned and he is progressing according to that plan. Wait and see for Saturday.

Coach wants to keep changing it up during practice, especially with the long breaks they have between games.

And then….

Some changes in the net…

Here is the complete statement from Twitter as reported by Greg Wyshynski.

According to the NY Times: “The list of games to be available exclusively on or, will be announced in September. All other N.W.H.L. games will remain available for streaming on the league’s website.”

Well done ladies!! We will be watching and hope other hockey fans will join in to help expand this group of talented professional hockey players.
