… yep, that’s where my Caps are right about now. Jeeeebus. I know I’m a new fan and so don’t have the loyalty maybe many others have, but it sure is getting hard to believe they will pull themselves out of that ditch at this point.
They lost AGAIN to the LA Kings 3-2. The message boards are NOT happy.
One of the comments:
Ok, boys, here are some basic rules of hockey:
1. Make sure when you pass, you pass to someone who is dressed just like you. If you are dressed in black, you shouldn’t pass to some one dressed in white.
2. You have to shoot at the goal in order to have chances to make a goal. If you do make goals or assists, you will get personal points – and that’s a good thing.
3. When the other team is trying to shoot a goal, you must do everything you can to get the puck out of the area. Don’t try to do this by passing to guys dressed differently than you (see #1). Try to skate the puck out or hit it really hard so it goes past that blue line near the center.
Anyway, here’s hoping they can pull themselves together somehow and keep moving forward.
We got an XBox to play hockey (probably the only way the caps will win is on my Xbox!) and I found out I have crap hand/eye coordination. UGH. I really need to practice on that.
(Not much snark at 6am – sorry)
I’m holding out hope for the season. We have a history of starting off crappy and boy are we living up to it! Jeffery will see us through!
My eye hand coord. is fine, just slllloooowwww, too many years of better living through illegal chemistry ;)
I have super hand/eye coordination! (Not to brag or anything. ;) I knew all those years of playing video games would come in handy. I just might have to play you sometime.
UGH….I’m with you there. Horribly disappointing season so far. What kills me is that there’s plenty of talent on the team (well, the defense isn’t as good as it needs to be), and they should not be playing this poorly. But I’m still a loyal fan. Hopefully my loyalty isn’t misplaced on these guys.
