A giant Obama head behind Thomas’s goal, though, is taking things to another level. This will attract some attention.

The Obama head here is the handiwork of Brian Murphy — the proprietor of D.C. sports site Homer McFanboy — and it will indeed be in Verizon Center Monday night. Look for it in Section 117 (six rows from the glass behind the goal Thomas will defend in the second period).

I’m starting to think this might be better than the John Tortorella water bottle trolling from 2009.
