The Capitals Are…..Stanley Cup Champions

As much as it pains me to say this, the Washington Capitals are your 2017-18 Stanley Cup Champions. Maybe I’m a sore loser, but I turned the game off with about ten seconds to go. I just couldn’t bare to witness Alex Ovechkin hold Lord Stanley’s Cup aloft. Then I had to log off Twitter because I kept scrolling past pictures of him with the cup. I guess there’s good news and there’s bad news. The good news is that the Penguins still have two more Cup wins during Ovechkin’s career and, even though he’s considered one of the greatest players in the history of the sport, it still took him 14 years to finally win it all. The bad news is that we can’t make all those great jokes about Ovi never winning the cup anymore. I think that bothers me the most. I suppose I can still makes jokes about how old he looks at the age of 32, but…..it’s just not the same. Make sure to listen to Rocky 96.5 this fall as the Pittsburgh Penguins begin their quest to reclaim the cup for the good guys.
