Fans showed up early ... really early.
But 3 a.m. was not the winner, not by a long shot. This fan started the party before MIDNIGHT to ensure she had a prime spot.
The first fan arrived in front of the stage last night at 11:30 pm. She is a life-long fan from North Carolina who spent the night on the fenceline to get a prize spot for the #ALLCAPS Parade and to get a glimpse of the #StanleyCup #superfan #dedication pic.twitter.com/9DYtrzG6jK— USPPNEWS (@usparkpolicepio) June 12, 2018
There were bagpipes, for some reason.
Zambonis were on the loose in D.C.
This Capitals’ fan made a Stanley Cup out of beer cans. You got to commend his effort.
Alex Ovechkin and the Stanley Cup arrived.
And the buses rolled onto the parade route!
Jakub Vrana was on another level.
D.C. was flooded in red. Pretty sure a lot of people called out sick from work.
T.J. Oshie, the legend
Chug! Chug! Chug!
Ovechkin, arguably, had the best speech at the rally.
