The Washington Capitals have been on a roll with bobbleheads this season. In August, we got Dmitry Orlov, our favorite unsung Russian defenseman who wasn’t even under contract with the team at the time. On November 8, we had the most consequential election of our time, as Braden Holtby beat out two other candidates to be immortalized in resin. A little while later, the Capitals released a divinely inspired Alex Ovechkin bobblehead.
On Friday morning, the Caps unveiled their latest creation: Lars Eller, depicted in the most glorious form of artwork, the bobblehead.
The Washington Capitals have clearly stepped their bobblehead game up this season. A week after allowing fans to vote for one of three fantastic personality-driven player bobbles, the Capitals released their holiday ticket package and its accompanying gift is one of the most clever Alex Ovechkin bobbleheads ever produced.
Tuesday night, the results of a Very Important Election were announced. No, not the United States presidential election–the Caps Bobblehead Election!
After a flurry of hashtag voting, it was revealed that Braden Holtby is your winner. Holtby beat out Justin Williams and Tom Wilson, despite apparently not voting for himself.
Today is November 8, election day in America, and…
*Wait, have you voted yet? You haven’t? Dude, stop reading this immediately and go vote right now. Cool? Cool.*
While many of you are mainly concerned with who the next US President will be between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, inside the Capitals locker room there is a great debate about another (ceramic) neck-and-neck race.
The Capitals are hosting a vote for the next Capitals bobblehead between Braden Holtby’s holtbyism, Tom Wilson’s Wiiiiillllllsssssssooooon Halloween costume, and Justin Williams’ fro.
The players are divided. Some of the candidates aren’t even voting for themselves.
November 8 is election day in the United States. And this year, the Caps are giving fans the chance to make another very important decision: What should the next Capitals bobblehead giveaway be?
Tuesday morning via Facebook Live, the Capitals revealed the three candidates for the bobbleheads and they are tremendous.

Something amazing happened Monday after the Capitals morning skate, and you need to see it right this very minute. Alex Ovechkin walked out of Kettler Capitals Iceplex cradling a giant bobblehead of Alex Ovechkin.
It’s like when Eli Manning held that tiny bucket except twice as disturbing and ten times more confusing.
Reader Sydney S. tells me that Human Ovi put Bobble Ovi safely in the passenger seat of the Ovimobile and then drove away.
Oh? You want more pictures? Here are some more pictures.

Tonight, the Washington Capitals gave away Alex Ovechkin bobbleheads to everyone in attendance. Before the game (inspired by Reader Greta) we asked you guys to tweet us your own personal photos with the Ovi bobblehead. Some of them were really clever – such as the one of Ceramic Ovi pointing to The Ovi Spot. And some, like the above photo, kind of made us wonder.
Like why did someone break their bobblehead? They could totally get like $40 for that ish on eBay! Why does the person sitting in front of it not seem bothered at all that a decapitated ceramic head is staring back at her? Also, how did someone manage to perfectly wedge that noggin in-between the seat railing. I have so many questions.
Regardless, here are my favorite 20 photos you guys sent us. Keep being weird, you weirdos.
Over the last few years, Inova Blood Donor Services has held seasonal blood drives at Kettler Capitals Iceplex. Each time, you guys come out in full force to help the community (you’re cool like that) and get the special perks that come with it. Not only do you help save a life, you also get a Caps player bobblehead and a t-shirt.
The next scheduled blood drive is on Saturday, December 6th. Tuesday night, Caps radio announcer John Walton released an image of the next bobblehead to be given out. It’s not a player.
It’s new Caps head coach Barry Trotz!
