I was so obsessed with Washington, D.C. and the Capitals as a child that when it came time to pick a college, I chose American University partially because I wanted to be closer to the team. But now, I love all things Washington. Expect the bag tax. I am the co-founder of Kings Of Leonsis, a Caps-centric blog I've started with fellow SB Nation D.C. staffer Jack Anderson. Check us out. Our text is on fire.
