PHOTOS: You Guys, Cal Ripken Was at the Caps Game

Cal Ripken, Jr., the greatest man ever to live, attended the Washington Capitals 1-0 win over the Pittsburgh Penguins on Wednesday.

Ripken played all 21 seasons of his MLB career with the Baltimore Orioles, the greatest baseball franchise ever to live. He finished 5 seasons with a batting average above .300, hit 431 home runs, won the World Series in 1983, and batted in 1697 runs. Ripken owns the MLB record for consecutive games played (2,632) and also our hearts.

Seriously, just look into those baby blues. What a hero.

Below the jump, check out pictures of Cal hanging out at the Verizon Center.

If anyone else managed to snap a picture of Ripken at the game, send it over and we’ll put it up!

    I love him so. And, sorry Ovi, when I think 8, I think Cal first.

    Cal will always be The Man.

    In an interesting coincidence, Ovi and Ripken were both born under the sign of Virgo.

    I had the honor of being only the third person to ever announce his name on the Oriole Park at Camden Yards sound system in a game situation last year.  Got tingles and still have the scorecard and rosters from the game.
