On BLY: 90.7% increase in price of these Caps season tickets over five years

February 17, 2012


With the new season ticket prices the Caps have announced for next season, two 400 level Caps season tickets that went for $1713 total in 2008-09 will now go for $3266 next season. That’s a 90.7% increase in 5 years. It’s a business and the team needs to capitalize while they are hot, but raising […]

On BLY: Looking at Caps tickets prices

February 16, 2012


Over on, the Caps blog that my brother and I just started, I took a look at Caps ticket prices on StubHub and some upcoming games that might end up being fairly inexpensive. I got five tickets in the 400 level to last Thursday’s game against the Winnipeg Jets for $8.99 each late that […]

I started a Caps hockey blog

January 27, 2012


My brother and I started a Caps hockey blog. It’s called Brooks Laichyear and this initial post explains a little about it. Check it out and I hope you enjoy it. And thanks to all of you who have read my Caps post here on this blog. I imagine I’ll still be blogging here but […]

Kevin Weekes says Caps now “the main team” in DC area sports scene

December 2, 2011


Speaking on the NHL Network about the Anaheim Ducks hiring of former Caps coach Bruce Boudreau, Kevin Weekes praised Boudreau for putting Caps “back on the radar” and said, “they’re now the main team back in the DC area in terms of the sports scene.” True? Do the Caps come ahead of the Skins as […]

Delivering the ‘Please do not lean forward’ message better

June 4, 2011


Corey Masisak with tweeted the picture above from Vancouver’s Rogers Center tonight, pointing out that this Boston Bruins fan might be “in for an interesting evening” as an away fan at Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Finals. What jumps out at me in the photo, as a Washington Capitals fan, are all the […]

Looking beyond a playoff W-L record

May 12, 2011


Mike Wise began his May 6 Washington Post column by referencing three legendary hockey coaches and their playoff winning percentages early in their careers, as he defended Washington Capitals coach Bruce Boudreau following the team’s second round exit from the playoffs. Wise wrote: “Bruce Boudreau’s below-average playoff record of 17-20 (.459) keeps being used as […]

What channel is the Caps game on tonight?

April 13, 2011


***Read my new Caps blog,*** Some people have landed on the blog today after searching for things like “what channel is the caps game on tonight”. There seems to be a bit of confusion about what channel tonight’s playoff game vs. the New York Rangers will be on and that’s understandable. As recently as […]

Looks like tonight’s CSN+ Caps broadcast will be on a different channel…

April 6, 2011


If you can’t find the CSN+ broadcast of tonight’s Caps game vs. the Florida Panthers in its usual spot on your cable system, it may have moved due to what looks to be MASN overflow baseball. Check the channel look-up guide on the Comcast SportsNet site to find out what channel it’s on for you. […]

Will the Washington Capitals’ home sellout streak end anytime soon?

December 4, 2010


The Washington Capitals‘ streak of selling out Verizon Center reached 74 games this past Sunday when they faced the Carolina Hurricanes. But fans shouldn’t take that to mean tickets are not available for upcoming games. As I mentioned a few weeks ago, tickets are available for Caps games on the resale market, but you can […]

If The Igloo is to be destroyed…

December 3, 2010


I wake up the morning of the NHL Winter Classic a bit like a kid on Christmas…but who has to wait until 1pm to open his gifts. Watching the New Year’s Day outdoor ice hockey game—about to be played for the fourth year in a row—has quickly become a tradition for me and I find […]

You ask, when will Verizon FiOS have CSN+ available in HD?

November 18, 2010


A quick (cause this guy’s got a day job that doesn’t involve DC sports or cable television) lunchtime post… A year ago, I was blogging about how FiOS customers in some parts of the Greater Washington DC area were not able to view Caps and Wizards games that were diverted to the CSN overflow channel […]

Keeping your Caps tickets out of the hands of the opposing team’s fans

November 8, 2010


More than one person commented on Twitter during yesterday’s Caps game about the number of Flyers fans that were at the game, including some who said that some Philly fans were in seats normally occupied by Caps season ticket holders. My brother, who was at the game, said to me later by text, “It was […]

CSN has Caps & Wizards in HD tonight simultaneously for first time ever

November 5, 2010


Tonight will be the first time during the 2010-11 regular season that the Washington Capitals and Wizards play at the same time. And as CSN Washington notes on their blog, the regional sports network will broadcast both teams’ games simultaneously in HD. As many Caps and Wizards fans know well, this was not possible in […]

Can an opening night get any better?

October 10, 2010


If Ted Leonsis ends up with any complaints in his inbox after the Caps 7-2 home opener win over the Devils, I respectfully ask that he forward those along to me. D.J. King and I can respond to them together. That game had pretty much everything a Caps fan could hope for. Sure, you can […]
