Caps Wear Green to Honor St. Patrick’s Day

Green Jerseys (8 of 15)

For the second time in ten days, the Washington Capitals took the ice for pre-game warm-ups in some unusual duds. The occasion for Sunday’s sweaters? St. Patrick’s Day.  However, the holiday isn’t until March 17, falling three full days after the Caps wore these uni’s. On top of that, Washington, D.C. isn’t exactly known for its Irish heritage. Nevertheless, the jersey were auctioned off during the game with a portion of the funds going to charity. Take a look at the rest of my photographs of these rather, um, interesting jerseys after the jump.

What say you Caps fans? Do these jerseys get a pass?

    If anything, the jerseys look like the practice jersey’s worn by the “third” line. Guess they had to do it since they’re not home on St. Patrick’s Day. Along with the fact that Washington DC was doing St Patrick’s Day related stuff over the weekend.

    It’s not that bad…if you only look at Sasha. I think him and Brooks are the only ones who don’t look weird in them, and MoJo.

    It makes them look pretty sick. And not in the good Ovi way.

    St. Patrick’s Day is fun and all, but it’s kinda odd to have a sports team celebrating it.

    I like St. Patty’s Day stuff typically and this is no exception. Clearly, you guys did not see these prison jerseys before posting this, lol…. http://sports.yahoo.com/nhl/blog/puck_daddy/post/Pass-or-Fail-Habs-barber-poles-Wranglers-Blag?urn=nhl-138183

    I agree. Only Sassy Sasha suits the green, and he totally knows it. He’s gonna Bedazzle the shit outta that when he gets home.

    I was thinking of picking up a green practice jersey at the equipment sale just to have a green caps jersey for st patrick’s day, but I figured that might be a little dorky. :P
