Torts Gone Wild ! Torterella Suspended Game 6 Stanley Cup Playoffs vs Capitals (via HockeyBash)
Naturally, members of the Japers' Rink community worked together to generate an appropriate response, and the original Operation Poncho was put into action for game 7.
Dan Steinberg blogged about it, fans were featured in photos that appeared on news sites all over the world, and we all celebrated as the Capitals won in dramatic fashion in game 7.
With the Rangers coming to town, I propose we do our part as fans to try and get under Torterella's skin a little, right from the start of the series. We need a community wide effort to locate and purchase some ponchos, preferably red, to distribute along with some signs to the Capitals fans seated behind the visiting team's bench before games 1 and 2.
I've only looked in 2 stores so far, but have been unable to find anything besides clear see through ponchos. Red would obviously be more noticeable, so if you have the time, see what you can find in stores near you.
Let's keep the efforts organized in the comments section. Who is with me?
