Friday afternoon, longtime Capitals season-ticket holder Pat Sajak invited the Caps’ commentary crew to the Wheel of Fortune set in Culver City, Calfornia.
Joe Beninati, Craig Laughlin, and John Walton toured Stage 11 at Sony Pictures Studios. They also hung out with the show’s hosts, Sajak and Vanna White. The voices of the Caps also posted in front of the Wheel of Fortune board where the producers of the show put up the phrases of “Let’s Go Caps” and Craig Laughlin’s signature line of “Hold It Here.”
Sajak has hosted Wheel of Fortune for 36 years and earned three Emmy Awards, a People’s Choice Award, and a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The host lives in Severna Park, Maryland, and frequents hockey games at both Verizon Center and Staples Center.

The Caps got crushed in game one by the New York Islanders, and they did it in front of one of the greatest baseball players of all-time.
Baltimore Orioles Hall of Famer Cal Ripken, Jr., the original Great 8, was at Verizon Center last night, sitting in the lower bowl. This was first reported on Twitter by Talk The Red’s Brad Herson.
Wheel of Fortune Host and Washington Capitals season ticket holder Pat Sajak was on PTI tonight. Sajak filled in as Michael Wilbon and Tony Kornheiser’s celebrity stat boy, filming an Oddsmaker segment in the middle of the show. And he did the damn thing while wearing a Caps jacket.
Everybody’s favorite global warming non-believer Pat Sajak had glass-side seats at tonight’s Caps-Coyotes game. Along with his son, the Wheel of Fortune host ambled down to Phoenix to see his hometown Caps play.
CSN Washington’s Joe Beninati mentioned that Sajak came in the night before and spent “a few hours on the links” on game day.

Now look, last night we took a few shots (a har har) at Mike Green for fighting Ilya Kovalchuk. See here, here, and here. But really it was all in good fun, and we were reacting to something we saw after one take.
Today, after video of the fight made its way to the masses, it seems as if other people jumped at a chance to make it personal with Green Life. Let’s take a look at the comments on hockeyfights.com shall we?
