Please don’t mistake this for gloating. I am a D.C. native who got one of the biggest thrills as a youngster by watching the Redskins win Super Bowl 26. I am old enough to remember when the Redskins were good, and I’m certainly old enough to remember those backwards days when D.C. didn’t have baseball. Still, if there are still good times to be had, we've seen a lot less of them, and it would be the understatement of the year to say that our sporting universe has left us a lot to be desired.  The Washington Capitals might be the one exception to the rule of marginal returns for our area teams. For them we can all raise a toast at some of the things they don't do.  It's ten plus one, why Capitals fans can have fun.


Ten things the Capitals don't do:

1. The Washington Capitals do not have a GM whose strongest qualification for the position is being racquetball partners with the owner.


And drumroll please, as a bonus cut, the most important thing the Capitals don’t do, is have…

An owner who has a close personal relationship with Tom Cruise.  How's that scientology magic working for you Dan Snyder?
