My fiance's mom came out from LA around thanksgiving this year. I decided to give her a welcome weekend by taking her to her first hockey game (the one against the Wild a few weeks back) and a punk rock show.
At the game, Brooks decked a Wild player into his own benches and her mom loved it. She said Brooksie is her favorite player now (after watching one game). I figured it would be a fun send her a red caps tshirt gift with Brooksie's name/number on back and have her represent that caps on the west coast, but the stores I've found in the area that have caps apparel only seem to have ones with the names Ovechkin, Green, Backstrom, Semin and Valamov
Has anyone seen any stores that sell a caps tshirt with "LAICH" on the back?
I remember just a few years ago when I would walk into even the biggest sports apparel stores in the area and you'd be lucky to even see a generic caps shirt or cap. Now there's just red everywhere. Funny how things change so fast huh? This past summer I started seeing tons of Varly tshirts everywhere... even more than Ovechkin. Sure he did good for us in the playoffs and everyone had a lot of faith in him.. but that seemed like a risky move... pumping tons of money into printing varly tshirts when the kid had only played a handful of nhl games at the time.
