Washington sports reporter chugs alcohol on-air after Capitals get eliminated

"Give up on your dreams."

We've all experienced sports disappointment at one point or another in our lives. With the Stanley Cup playoffs in full swing, pain is around the corner for most hockey fans this spring.

Comcast SportsNet reporter Michael Jenkins felt that pain after the Capitals were eliminated in six games to the Penguins. And what did he do about it? Chug alcohol during his broadcast to wash away the bitter taste of disappointment!

You're the real MVP, Jenkins. Sorry your dreams died along with the Capitals Stanley Cup hopes.

Update 5/13:

We've been duped! It was iced tea all along.

The poor man looked like he could have used some alcohol, though.
