The Real Season Starts Tonight

82 near meaningless games later, the moment all Caps fans have been waiting for is hear.  The playoffs start tonight, and taking revenge on the rest of league for our lackluster appearances in the past 3 years is going to be sweet.  To kick off the start of the post season, here are a few of my favorite moments from the Ovechkin era.  If this does not pump you up for tonight, you are definitely not rocking the red.

Where it all began, April 5th 2008, the Caps clinch the division and last playoff spot on the final day of the regular season

And who can forget NY Rangers head coach, John Tortorella, getting suspended for Game 6, in the 2009 playoffs.

So tonight when the Caps take the ice against the Rangers, the lasting memories of Game 7 in 2009 should be fresh in all our minds.

Let’s Go Caps!!!

Happy Turkey Day

Thanksgiving Day is here and while I am not going to make a whole blog post on “what I am thankful for,” I do want to thank Ted Leonsis for some Caps tickets on Monday night. The Caps stink, but the game provided an opportunity for one of the AIM Product Managers to get up on the JumboTron not once but twice. First she competed in a contest, which she won thanks to high crowd approval ratings, then she managed to get on the “Kiss Cam.” Ryan you represented yourself and AIM proudly, and provided a bunch of good laughs.

One item that caught my attention on Facebook yesterday is a new application called AIM Buddy Info. You can check it out on my Facebook profile here. The application will show status icon, status message, buddy icon and buddy info. There are some settings associated with it so if you do not want to expose some of the features that is possible. This is definitely a great way to share AIM information in Facebook.
