Digging up embarrassing photos and videos of new hires and signings is a thing we like to do here at RMNB. Recall last summer, when George McPhee hired Adam Oates as the team’s new head coach we shared video of Oates guest-starring in an episode of Nickelodeon’s GUTS. With 19-year-old Tom Wilson joining the Capitals and potentially making his debut in game five on Friday night, here’s a photo of Wilson fishing as a kid.
Please observe that multi-colored bead necklace Wilson is wearing. I’m going to go out on the limb and say he made it with his own nimble fingers. How else would one build up the hand-eye coordination to punch someone in the face once one grows up? And the kid is ripped. As a kid I was taller than most of my classmates, but I never looked like Rambo.
Congratulations to Tom. Best of luck –whenever you actually play.
