Watch Taylor Swift Talk About the Capitals (Video)


Earlier in the day, we reported that Taylor Swift mentioned the Washington Capitals during her show on Saturday night at the Verizon Center. (She did so again Sunday too.) Hard-hitting stuff, right? Well now we have video.

Check out the 3:36 mark. Warning! Screaming. Lots and lots of screaming.

During her introduction, Swift said, “I’m going to give you a heads up about another thing about this tour, about this concert you’re about to see. You’re going to see one particular color, more than all the other colors. You might be sitting there asking yourself, ‘Why is this one color going to be in the forefront of everything at this show?’ It’s mostly because the Capitals and them being in the playoffs.”

So there’s that. The only way this could have been cooler was if Mattias Sjogren wrote ‘sexy’ on her back with magic marker.

Let’s also discuss how I did two posts on this topic today and spent an hour on YouTube searching for her quote. I’m not sure what that says about me, but feel free to let me know in the comments.

    didn’t help today, but tomorrow the rangers will fall.

  • 6:00 minutes of my life I’d like to have back.

  • She has a terrible stage voice.

    Taylor sure kicks the chit out of Carrie Underwood … Not only does she sell out every concert ( Carrie’s are only 1/2 full ) … She did not marry a loser ( Mike Fisher ) who’s team was in last place :)~

  • Where oh where did I say “listen to the whole thing?” Haha.

    I wonder if any of the caps is planing on banging her when they get to DC. After all she is always after popular guys….

    Nice screen shot of the tight, er, buns…

  • Dustin Penner, is that you? All I see is pancakes.

    You, Ian, are one devoted Caps fan who excels in bringing all things Caps-related to the readers of the #1 Caps site-Russian Machine Never Breaks. 🙂

  • I know some people are going to really hate this post, and I totally respect that. But I think for a lot of people it’s really fun and exciting, that she talked about the team. I mean, when I saw Snoop Dogg at my alma mater in a Caps jersey, it made me unimaginably happy, even though I know deep down in my heart he probably doesn’t care too much about the team.

    I really appreciate your comment, Jennifer, by the way. This is a lot of work to do on top of my job and my actual life. But I’m fueled by all the feedback and visits, and the awesome doods who I am fortunate to work with. It’s so fun; it’s the best part of my life and I appreciate you being apart of it.

    I feel that way when an athlete of another sport or singer wear’s Orioles stuff even though they probably couldn’t name a single player on the team. Beats the old typical Dodgers or Yankees stuff that you always see worn though.

    Taylor Swift in town at the same time that the Caps face another potential heartbreak? Blame is all on her if we don’t win tomorrow night, as perhaps she is going in a new direction of songwriting that focuses more on the heartbreaks of hockey fans rather than her many past relationships.

  • JenniferH

    Oh, thank you so much. I have been a huge fan of many things in my life and this is one of the rare times where I’ve found a place in that fandom that’s just simply wonderful. I read other sites, but what you, Peter, Chris, et al., do here is just fantastic and special. You’re fair, and you can be serious about this hockey stuff, but you also offer up goofy fun which I get a kick out of. It’s obvious that you all love the game, love the team, but you’re not blinded by your love. And you guys have enabled an atmosphere that reflects that for the most part. I feel like I’ve found my Caps home here. You all definitely deserve kudos.

    And as someone who likes Taylor Swift I very much enjoyed this vid (yes, I know she can’t sing live, but her songs are hella catchy). I also know that if someone I don’t like said stuff about Caps, I’d STILL love to hear about it because, well, who doesn’t like hearing their team talked up?

    Keep up the great work, I’m gad it brings you joy because you bring many Caps fans joy from this all this site offers. 🙂

    Perhaps all her songs about heartbreak were about the Caps. Hopefully, for all our sakes, she won’t have a new single tomorrow…
