The Washington Capitals organization loves bobbleheads. They’ve given out countless resin statues in recent years. At blood drives, at home games, or as part of the team’s Kids Club: tons tiny, oddly proportioned Caps players have made their way into fans’ homes.

Several Washington Capitals players are participating in Movember, a month-long facial hair fundraiser for prostate and testicular cancers as well as mental health. For the next however-many-days-are-in-November-I-can’t-remember-the-rhyme, the Caps will be growing lip shrubbery for a good cause.

The Caps are doing their part to raise awareness. At the November 5th game against the New York Islanders, the Caps will be giving away Troy Brouwer Bobbleheads. (Also, Alex Ovehckin is expected to return, so maybe buy tickets?)

LOOK AT THAT THING. WHAT IS THIS THING. I NEED IT.

P.S. Why not get involved in Movember? You can donate to someone’s campaign– such as friend-of-the-blog Nick Frye!

On March 23rd, Inova Blood Donor Services is holding another blood drive at Kettler Capitals Iceplex. If you’ve never considered donating blood before, this might be the perfect time to do it. Why? Because the giveaway is awesome. Anyone who donates blood will receive an Olie Kolzig bobblehead. And I’m talking a realistic Kolzig bobblehead, not this weird, green-faced alien one I got 15 years ago which scares little children.

So let’s recap. Sign up today, save a life, and get some awesome Caps memorabilia for free in the process. Good deal.
