MC Hammer at the Caps game

When word spread on Twitter that MC Hammer was in attendance at the Caps game, I put my stalking pants on and set out to find him. It turns out that he had moved from his seats on the glass into the owners box, where I found him surrounded by fans leaning over the partition to grab photos with the pop-rap legend.

“It’s the home opener,” he told me, when I asked what brought him to Verizon. “What better place to be?”

Hammer was in town to attend various inaugural events, and used the opportunity to take in some hockey.

“Hockey is my son’s favorite sport,” he explained. “He’s from the Bay area, so he’s a Sharks fan.”

The Caps tweeted this pic of Hammer unleashing his fury.
