Carey and I took in our first Caps game of the year last night. It was a pre-season tilt against Buffalo. We lost 2-1, but we didn't care. We were thrilled to be on the Metro, heading downtown clad in red. The start of hockey sadly is the end of baseball for me. My Orioles have been out of the race since April anyway, but I did have fun following the new young arms this year. Hopefully next year we can break the 12 losing season streak next year.
There are high expectations for our nation's Capitals this year, it should be a great ride! Last night I got a new appreciation for the "short guys." We'll see how many of them make the team.
