If you can't beat 'em, beat 'em!!!!
My favorite sports team (the Washington Capitals) took one on the chin tonight, losing to the New York Rangers 7-0. It is their sixth straight loss. It became laughable about midway through the second period. The one bright spot (kinda) of the whole game was the fight that Alex Ovechkin got in. Ovechkin is a scorer, not. a fighter. He has only been in one other fight in his NHL career. I'd rather see him scoring than fighting, but I liked the heart he showed. You would think that the rest of the team would respond after seeing this kind of effort and passion from their captain. I'm not convinced though...the Caps look like they are in for a long middle of the season...hopefully they can turn it back around. Anyway..here's a video of the fight.
