This morning I opened up a press release, and there I found this little nugget of joy:
ARLINGTON, Va. – Kettler Capitals Iceplex, training facility of the Washington Capitals, is slated to paint Washington’s brand new, red, white and blue logo on the team’s practice ice sheet this Tuesday, July 3, beginning at 10 a.m. The process which takes about three hours should be completed around 1 p.m. The new red, white and blue logo will be placed prominently at center ice.
WHAT: Kettler Capitals Iceplex logo painting
WHEN: Tuesday, July 3 (10 a.m. – 1 p.m.)
WHERE: Kettler Capitals Iceplex
That's right, someone in the Capitals infrastructure thought that painting the ice at the Ket was important enough to send out a press release about it.
If anyone out there is near the Ket in the next few days, take a picture and send it to me, and I'll post it here. I'm imagining that the new ice will painted in 3-D or something to warrant this kind of attention.
