RMNB’s been busy working on a special project, so we missed the Inova Blood Drive at Kettler Capitals Iceplex. Every few months, Inova holds a blood drive at the Caps practice rink and gives away bobbleheads and shirseys of certain Caps players. This past Saturday it was Joel Ward.
Unfortunately, the Wardo bobble heads got stuck in customs, but donators wound up getting a more special gift: meeting The Big Cheese himself. Ward signed autographs, took photos, and complimented people on their t-shirts.
And, of course, he donated blood.
New t-shirt idea: “Spills Blood On The Ice, Donates Blood Off Of It.”
The real redeeming quality of Ward’s appearance was how many people he made happy.

Joel Ward is crazy nice. Complimented my Pucks and Pixels shirt.
