    The last time the Caps made it here, we all knew they were going to lose to the Wings. It was a great run, but the ending was inevitable.

    This time... this time it's different.

    Keep the fucking faith!!!

    Let's go Caps!!

    I got to go with Pittsburgh West.

    I just can't root for any team from the DC area.

    First time Stanley Cup champion coming up. When was the last time that happened where both teams had never won it going in.

    To all the "Pittsburgh West" fans, let me say what we're all thinking...

    Fuck you, you spoiled assholes. You have 5 Cups and because your team got knocked out you all can't just suffer through the pain like so many of us do year in and year out?

    There is no Pittsburgh West. Your ex goalie is there that you all were happy to let go of his big salary, James Neal hasn't worn the black and gold since 2014, and Engelland was hardly a fan fave or a strong contributor when he was on your team.

    If my goalie or a forward from the Caps ends up elsewhere, I'll wish them well individually. But I'll be damned if I'll ever act like a fan or cheer on another team that doesn't have CAPITALS written across the sweaters.

    Because I'm a true fan. Props to you Pittsburgh fans who are the same. You know who you are. Many of you have a Pirates logo sitting in those squares.

    To me the Pittsburgh West thing is a joke. As I said in that same post the only reason for me to root for Vegas is I can't root for any team from the DC area.


    And yes because I grew up in an area that did not have any Major sports team in it I am considered a bandwagon fan by many, but one that has rooted for the same teams since I was a kid.

    I cannot speak for your area but around here Pittsburgh West is a euphemism for anal sex.

    So, there is a Trump hotel in both of the respective cities in the SCF - I don't know what it means, but it can't be good.
