The Capitals just announced that Caps fans in Virginia and Maryland will soon be able to take their spirit "on the road" with a Caps-branded vehicle license plate - just the perfect finishing touch for Hockey Mom's little red car! Applications for both states are now being accepted on the Capital's Web site. Maryland fans can sport their team loyalty starting as early as November 2008 with their shiny new plate brandishing the Cap's "Weagle". Design for the Virginia plates is currently underway and plates will be available for the 2009-2010 season. And the other great thing is that some of the proceeds from license plate sales will go to Washington Capitals Charities.
Speaking of my little red car, I opened the trunk today and literally almost passed out in the Target parking lot! My boys left their bags in the trunk after the game yesterday (which they lost 7-1 but they put up a good fight against a higher-ranked team). Needless to say, it was 93 degrees yesterday and that wet equipment just got funkified in there. And my fellow Hockey Mom friend just pointed out the sock hanging from my chandelier (how did that get there?)...oh, the many joys of hockey mom-hood!
