Caps fan checking in from Middle East

Newbie checking in on this website... I never knew this existed or I would have joined long ago. Originally from Hershey, PA (Yep, always a Bears fan)... Marine for 18 years, Caps fan for about 25 years. I'm missing another hockey season due to deployment but I keep in tune thanks to internet. Go Caps/Bears!!!

Normally this is the type of thing we'd merge, but...

Thanks for all those who serve.

Thanks, things like this keeps me up-to-date so I'll probably hang around for a while. My wife sent me two of my jerseys and I took pictures and sent them into the Verizon Center for their Veterans Day tribute to the troops. I don't know if my picture ever made the show on the jumbo tron that night or not. The Caps been stressing me out though here of late, lol.... Thanks everybody, see you around.

Thanks for your service, and it'll sound redundant, but it's great to have you on board! Welcome to our insanely dysfunctional family.

Many thanks for your service. This is a pretty good place to find news, a little irreverent conversation, gallows humor when the Caps aren't exactly setting the world on fire, and some great banter then they're flying. It's also a good place for some debates about lines, personnel, coaching and management, their brand of hockey du jour, playoffs, etc. The mods do a great job of keeping it civil when it starts boiling over. Welcome.

Welcome and thanks for your service. Bears updates are a little slow with sk8 ditching us () but we do have a couple locals posting now and then.

Japers Rink is a good spot for recaps/discussion as well.

Stay safe buddy and I hope you had a great Thanksgiving Dinner. I understand missing the season. I missed half the 2003 season/playoffs and 2003-2004 season. I remember making trips while waiting in Kuwait to watch Caps/Tampa series before heading into Iraq and we were up 2-0. By the time I was able to see any news after that, the Devils and Ducks were in game 7. Hopefully, you can catch some games over there. Some of the Dining facilities used to show NHL games. Be safe!

They don't show too many NHL games on the compound and when they do show a game, its usually a few days after the fact.

Welcome! I appreciate what you're doing as a U.S. Marine.

I hope the Caps will give us all something to cheer about soon. All the best to you.
