Sh*t Capitals Fans Say

By Adam Vingan

Thursday, SocialStudiesDC unveiled a two-minute video entitled “Sh*t People In DC Say,” poking fun at the culture of young professionals in Washington. Between references to José Andrés and Washingtonians’ love of brunch were a few mentions of the Washington Capitals: “F*ckin’ Caps!” and “My friend saw Ovi out at Russia House last night.”

While Caps fans have definitely muttered those two phrases, it got me wondering about what things one would normally hear from the Caps’ diehard fanbase. Luckily, Twitter is a great place to find such information quickly, so below are some of the best entries in what will ultimately become “Sh*t Caps Fans Say.”

“Nicklas Backstrom should be in the All-Star Game THIS IS A TRAVESTY!!”

Chris (@ChrisAltice): “Why doesn’t anyone in my section know what the “Puck in Play Rule” is?!”

T.J. (@tj_capscrazy): “I’ve liked hockey all my life I swear!”

And for the contrarian view. here’s some from the hashtag “#Sh*tCapsFansDontSay.”

Ana (@kickxdrumxheart): “What a tasteful tie Joe B. is wearing! I wonder where I can purchase one just like it.”
