I'm admitedly not the most hardcore of Flyers fans, so perhaps watching the celebration down in Washington, DC was tougher for those among us whose blood is a bit more orange. But I must say, the Capitals party over the past few days looked pretty OK to me.
It also reminded me a bit of what an absolute bonkers and joyous time we had here in Philadelphia back in February. There's something to be said for a city ending an incredibly long and painful championship draught. The party is a little extra.
Alex Ovechkin reached Jason Kelce status over the past few days. Heck, he may have surpassed it. Maybe his podium moment wasn't as poetic but we have to get Kelce to do some laps in the fountains on the Ben Franklin Parkway one of these days. That looked fun as hell.

Also, they just seemed to have had a whole lot of beer down there, which is OK:
But because, after all, it's DC we're talking about: their crowd size wasn't the most impressive.
That's all I got. Congrats, Caps fans, I guess. Good party.
