Appropriate that this should be launched amid the passing of Bryan Murray...how many people in this area became Caps supporters after he took over...I remember so well those days in the mid- and late 80's when (especially after NFL season was done - the Redskins were winning Super Bowls in those days) CapCentre would sell out for opponents like the Minnesota North Stars and the Winnipeg Jest and there was a level of excitement for those home matches that has never been equalled since by any local team.

Meanwhile niowadays we have the Caps as Ted Leonsis' toffs' club...the spirit of those days is gone.
