I'm a female hockeyphile, and a Washington Capitals fan since the days of the "Save the Caps" campaign.
(Also a New York Yankees fan due to genetics.)

2012 Washington AHL Showcase--Rink Group

The Hershey Bears will be playing the Norfolk Admirals in a regular-season AHL game at Verizon Center, Thurs., Dec. 6, at 7 p.m., This is the Bears first game in Washington since 1976 [and might be the only hockey played at Verizon Center this winter]. Is there interest in a Rink group trip to this game? Please indicate whether you want to be a part of the group by saying if you 1) Definitely want to be part of the group, or 2) Probably want to be part of the group. (If you'll be attending the game on your own as a season ticket holder, we can plan a meetup when the game gets closer.)

Go, Sharks.

The summer of 2010 started earlier than most any of us had anticipated, with a loss in the first round of the playoffs. Yet in that too-soon summer of a year ago, there were scraps of hope to cling...

Playoff Viewing Parties

Official Caps Viewing Parties for the games at MSG: Game 3 (Sun., April 17): Hard Times in Clarendon – 3028 North Wilson Blvd, Arlington, Va. A rally will begin at 1 p.m. in front of Hard Times and last until puck-drop at 3 p.m. Game 4 (Wed., April 20): Union Jack’s in the Ballston Common Mall, 671 North Glebe Road, Arlington, Va. Anyone planning to attend, or should we plan parties of our own? Both events are in Virginia, does someone want to suggest a DC or Maryland location instead?

Watch Blog Commenters Take the Ice (Pick-Up Games)

Two upcoming games; two groups of Rink readers playing pick-up hockey; two opportunities to hang out with folks you mostly only know by screen name. The Japers' Rink "Winter Holidays" Classic Pick-Up Game Saturday, Dec. 18, 2:00pm (The Caps play in Boston at 7:00pm, so there's a chance to keep the party going afterward.) The Japers' Rink "Pre-Winter Classic" Classic Pick-Up Game Thursday, Dec. 30, 7:45pm (There's no Caps game, and it's New Year's Eve-eve, so you can devote all your rooting energy to chirping the amateurs.) What do you say? If enough people are interested in watching the Caps together on 12/18, I'll see about making a reservation at one of the bars in the mall (please specify your favorites in the comments).

Rink Pick-Up Game and Blog Party

So, with the possibility of a Japers' Rink pickup game some time in December (or maybe January), we're wondering whether we can make a whole blog party out of it. Would you be interested in coming to watch your internet friends play hockey after we all watch the professionals do it? Would you be able to devote a few hours to a blog party if the pickup game was at Kettler and we watched the Caps game at one of the bars in the mall underneath? (Rabbits, would you want to get together and put in another order for shirts?) Caps away games over the next few weeks: Wed., Dec. 1 8pm at St. Louis Thurs., Dec. 2 8:30pm at Dallas Sun., Dec. 12 7pm at New York Sat., Dec. 18 7pm at Boston Sun., Dec. 19 7:30pm at Ottawa Sun., Dec. 26 7pm at Carolina Sat., Jan. 1 1pm at Pittsburgh (I'm guessing we don't want to mess with that last one for obvious reasons)

Official Playoff Game Watch Parties (DC area)
