#CapsIsles?! Capsules? Wait… did you mean Capsicles? Like Popsicles? Tasty treats like corn dogs that are perfect because you can eat them from a stick? Riiiiight. You can’t fool us, you’ve seen The Avengers one too many times, and just what are you implying regarding your Captain?
The Capsicles’ evil plan worked and they gained a follower, someone who celebrates every pre-game when another photograph with a creative take on the English language is fired out to fans and admirers. That follower may have even backtracked to “investigate” the trend and locker room pics further. I give to you The Best of The Capsicles, Part One.
February 9, 2013: Michal Neuvirth appears with a sign stating #CapsPens. Unfortunately by the end of the evening, the sign should have read #PensCaps as the Capsicles got owned 5-2 and Neuvirth took over for Braden Holtby less than half way through the game.
uneasy I-don’t-even-know-what look on Neuvirth’s face in the photograph was an indication of what would come that evening? Maybe we can read more into these photographs than we realize? Or maybe they’re just fun to look at?
I like fun.
February 14, 2013: Can Jay Beagle be your Valentine? He promises to make your evening electrifying with a little #CapsBolts action. Cue “Thunderstruck.”
March 5, 2013: No, ugh not the #CapsBruins. But don’t worry, Mathieu Perreault will make it all better, likely when he stops smiling like this and goes back to being Mathieu Perreault again.
March 7, 2013: By the look in his eyes you could just tell Troy Brouwer was clearly ready to tame some wild beasts, but #CapsCats was a pretty far wander from Wild Kingdom. The Capsicles
beat defeated the Panthers 7-1 and I’ll just stop while I’m ahead.
March 9, 2013: Joey Crabb-buh-buh inspired my Capsicles obsession. I don’t even know what happened that night. I have been told hockey was played. I will not argue with that as I consider my source reliable.
March 24, 2013: I didn’t grow up on Disney cartoons so I was unaware of what “Disney Prince Hair” was until I saw this photo on Tumblr on a day of the week I was unaware of, that being “Mike Green Monday.” Yeah, I slacked for about 12 hours on this gem.
March 26, 2013: Braden Holtby tosses #CapsIsles out in a new font! Oh, you can’t fool me Capsicles. And you didn’t fool the Isles either because they went on to beat you again, just like the last time the #CapsIsles battle cry rang out.
Since I like fun, here’s a fun little bonus Capsicles wrap up. Because I can.
