A PSA for Washington DC

Hey. Psst. Caps fan. Yeah, you. I see you creepin’. Come here, I have an idea for you.

Once upon a time, Montreal booed the USA national anthem during a Habs-Bruins game. The series then traveled to Boston. Did we follow suit and jeer during the Canadian anthem? Did we yell “LET’S GO BRUINS!” or sing some ungodly version of that stupid OLE song?

No. We stood, cheered, and sang along as Rene Rancourt belted out the lyrics to the anthem of America’s Fancy Hat. And then the Bruins kicked some Canadien butt.

Look, guys, we all know your team can handle the butt-kicking. We all saw the score of the game tonight; we know that Ovie, Backstrom, Laich and Crew should have no problem annihilating the Habs in the last two games of the series.

But HOW COOL WOULD IT BE if Washington DC welcomed Les Habitants with a rousing cheer for Canada’s anthem?

And if you don’t know the words but you want to sing along, just follow the example of the LA Kings’ anthem singer and look it up on your Blackberry. I’m sure somewhere Jim Balsillie is fist-pumping with glee.

Oh, and – just because this post can’t be all about the Habs and the Caps, since there was in fact another game 3 tonight…

DENNIS WIDEMAN: Throwing his own snakes since April 2010.

Game 4 is Wednesday.

Rask is on fire (2.01 GAA).

Boychuk and Sobotka have developed a taste for Buffalo. Mmm, delicious hits. Specifically, this one.

Playoffs, the playoffs what. GO BRUINS.

    I APPRECIATE YOU AND POINTING OUT THE FAULTS OF DC

    • I’m not pointing out faults! I’m just hoping DC comes through tomorrow. Obvs Boston is superior in all ways, but if they follow our example here I’ll like them a bit more. :D

  2. In all the games I attended during my time in DC (and I seriously lost count), I’ve never heard the Canadian anthem booed. And if they do, I will be incredibly upset. But then again, VC is now full of a few bandwagoners that have no idea what real loyalty to a team is (see: Washington Nationals) that a few boos that appear will probably roar from those buffoons.

    Those of us who love the game would never think of doing such a thing… as a ton of our lineup is actually Canadian, and how offensive would that be?
