Finally, we reach a kind of resolution on our story. Shinny had spurned her dad, choosing to bring her doofy boyfriend to the game instead. As you recall, it went poorly. Now: a decision is made.
We took a break for a few weeks for obvious (sad Caps) and not-so-obvious (Rachel graduated!) reasons, but we’re back with fresh Shinny, and it could not be more appropriate.
If you recall last time, Shinny’s boyfriend violated The Code. Now, much like the broader Caps fandom, Shinny has to deal with the aftermath. On the bright side, the Shoulder Angels are back!
At this point in the year, we all know what tension is about. The Caps-Rangers series is mostly a low-scoring affair, a goalie battle if you will. And in a goalie battle there is one matter that eventually comes up.
And there’s one guy who spoils it for everyone.
This is the story of that guy.
Our hero chosen to bring her dopey boyfriend to the Caps game instead of her father. Now, we learn how Shinny, an avowed superfan, prepares for a big game — just like tonight’s bout with the Jets. There are rituals, superstitions, and traditions that must be honored. Everything must be just right or else it will surely spell disaster for the team.
