Attention all Caps fans who will be at the game on Friday against the Devils: the plan is afoot for as many fans as possible to wear some sort of mirrored sunglasses or visor to taunt Marty Brodeur.
For those of you who are unawares, Marty is the goalie that complained not being about Alexander Ovechkin's mirrored visor, because Marty claimed he couldn't see Ovechkin's eyes. Never mind the fact that a goalie shouldn't be looking at the player's eyes. The competition committee (of which Brodeur is a member of) recommended the rule change, and the NHL's GMs voted for banning the visor by a vote of 29-1. The lone dissenting vote? Caps' General Manager George McPhee
Pick up a cheap pair of sunglasses at the local dollar store and bring them to the game on Friday. Tell all your friends as well. And fellow bloggers? Help spread the word.
