Pictured here are brothers Bryan and Andrew Tropeano, on the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro, wearing Caps gear. This was from a trip in July, when the brothers “wanted to make sure we got the Capitals all the way to the top of Africa!!” Bryan wrote in an e-mail.
The brothers are season-ticket holders, and their father, Ed, has been the same since the team’s inaugural season in 1974.
I’m not totally sure if this was the inspiration, but the Caps’ media types recently began soliciting photos of Caps fan in Caps gear at faraway or significant places in recent days. You can see many of the submissions at Capitals Overtime. I’m sort of partial to this shot from Maui, personally.
