New Caps, New Threads

New uniforms are on their way, kiddies! Mark your calendars for the Caps' Draft Day Party out at KCI, June 22nd, for a peek at the new duds our, er, old duds will be sporting next season. (Sorry, couldn't resist.) I'll hopefully be there and I'm sure all your favorite Caps bloggers will be there as well, ready to report back with snarky comments and style critiques a-plenty.

ARLINGTON, Va. – The Washington Capitals will unveil their new uniforms at a special Draft Day Party on Friday, June 22, held at the Kettler Capitals Iceplex in Arlington, Va. The event will be held in conjunction with the live broadcast on Versus of the first round of the 2007 NHL Entry Draft, which takes place that evening in Columbus, Ohio.

The new uniforms will mark a return to a red, white and blue color scheme – the colors the Capitals wore from their first season in 1974-75 through 1994-95. The Capitals are the first team in the NHL to announce their plans to unveil their new uniforms, which are produced by Reebok and feature the Rbk EDGE Uniform System technology that was introduced at the 2007 NHL All-Star Game in Dallas. The Capitals are the first team planning to have their new uniforms on hand at the NHL Entry Draft.

Further details about the event will be announced in the coming weeks.
Are you excited? I'm excited.

I'm excited because you're excited. It's weird how we feed off of each other...

Yes, it is...and if people need an example, just check out our little chat on HG's blog from the other night. Excitement? Insanity? Four-letter words? It's all there :)

I'm excited about the new colors -- maybe they'll revamp the town for a little while -- but, come on! I JUST got a black Zubie jersey. They get rid of him and change the colors. Are they trying to get rid of me?!

I am excited for the old school color scheme. It made me hate the Caps even more when they switched away from it... :)
