Capitalizing on Residency




As a registered voter of Virginia, I can claim any sports team in the DC area as my own. But I've always hated everybody in the NFC East, so fuck the Redskins, and I don't care about baseball. While the Sabres will always be my true home town team, the Caps games are all televised here and after watching several of them I really like this team. LoveChicken is great, of course, but the whole team is solid and fun to watch. Varlamov is still playing well after coming out of nowhere in the playoffs last year. There are a lot of good players that don't carry big stats or big name but play hard - Steckel, Clark (the Captain, and American!), Backstrom (although he's becoming a bit of a big name along with Alex Semin).

There are no douches on this team, they play fun hockey, it's a big deal in a non-traditional market, and their jerseys are badass. I've always liked them over anyone else in that division, and always preferred them to the Pens, so I'm now adopting them as a second home team.

The Buffalo-DC connection is actually pretty cool. The team was in trouble in the pre-lockout years, then got a lot younger, played more exciting, changed their jerseys, and made some playoff runs. The football team is awful. And I do mean awful - like Mike Williams is their starting right tackle awful. They put up 6 points at home against the Chiefs, and have a 2-4 record with one win being against the Bucs (who the Bills also beat). The other win was against the Rams and they did not score a touchdown. Despite a promising young QB, a star potential RB, and some very talented Wide outs, this offense is simply terrible. Sound familiar?

I'm not sure why Virginia can't have its own sports teams, and DC is like 2 hours away so it's not unlike me deciding to be a Maple Leafs fan when I'm back home - which I would NEVER do - but it feels like the home team. Go Caps! Go Sabres! Go Bills! And the Redskins can fuck themselves.

well the capitols do have an image of the capitol, which is almost as American as a mutant slug with a buffalo head on it
