Two upcoming games; two groups of Rink readers playing pick-up hockey; two opportunities to hang out with folks you mostly only know by screen name. The Japers' Rink "Winter Holidays" Classic Pick-Up Game Saturday, Dec. 18, 2:00pm (The Caps play in Boston at 7:00pm, so there's a chance to keep the party going afterward.) The Japers' Rink "Pre-Winter Classic" Classic Pick-Up Game Thursday, Dec. 30, 7:45pm (There's no Caps game, and it's New Year's Eve-eve, so you can devote all your rooting energy to chirping the amateurs.) What do you say? If enough people are interested in watching the Caps together on 12/18, I'll see about making a reservation at one of the bars in the mall (please specify your favorites in the comments).
