Pretty much every game is on TV and radio, the newspapers devote good chunks of their sports sections to the team. People actually TALK about the Caps. If anything it's the NBA Wizards that get the snickers and eyerolls.
The Nats are FINALLY drawing and it took a division title and the two biggest phenoms to come along in 30 years to do so. The Caps have the biggest band-wagon fan base in the league. 10 years ago, when they played the Pens, Flyers, Rangers, the place was 1/2 full with opposing fans.
