I’m glad you asked. Capital Spirit, to me, means two things.First, and most obvious, Capital Spirit means full-on support of the Washington Capitals–even if it’s at the expense of looking like a walking freak show, which I’ll get to right after I’m done introducing this thing.
Second, and less obvious, Capital Spirit is where hockey and spirituality collide. I’m likely going to be bouncing all over the map, and I am going to be presenting some spiritual/religous concepts in the mix, as well. Let me be clear on something right now: my beliefs are just that, MY beliefs. You may or may not share them. But I am not putting them out there to offend, insult, demean, belittle, or disrespect the beliefs of other Caps fans.
As far as this blog is concerned, though, I have one overall guiding belief: that you can’t check God at the door when you walk in to watch a hockey game. That’s my story, and I’m sticking to it.
