Morning Pixels: Caps Fan Appreciation Week

The traditional Caps Fan Fest fell victim to the months-long lockout and then the abrupt start of the season, so the team is making this week Fan Appreciation Week, including an abbreviated fan event Thursday. From the release:

On Thursday, Jan. 17, the Capitals will host the Caps Fan Appreciation Special Event at Verizon Center from 6-9 p.m.  Fans are invited to come celebrate the season with an open Capitals practice that includes complimentary hot dogs, fountain soda, popcorn, pretzels, nachos and ice cream that will be provided for all guests in attendance. The Capitals will host an open practice at 7 p.m., and select Capitals players will be available for a question-and-answer session with all fans in attendance after the practice as well as games, photo opportunities, a slap shot cage, face painting and autographs from Capitals legends Rod Langway and Peter Bondra. In addition the Verizon Center Team Store will be open for Capitals merchandise purchases with a 20% discount on regular-priced merchandise for all fans attending Thursday’s practice.

There are additional incentives for season ticket holders, and some contests for all fans that can be found on the Caps Web site
