Sometimes it's good to get back home. Sorry it's been a few months, but re-introducing Winger was a thrilling moment for me and my family. Winger never saw 18,000 Capitals fans in one place, it was pretty amazing. And Slapshot's gracious gesture to share the spotlight for a game was too precious.

I had a lot of learning to do when I was in my early 20's and the Washington Capitals provided plenty of frustration, but also some golden moments. My sons got to see the "gilded revision" of this in the power and passion the Caps' provide for their red-clad faithful.

Don't burn bridges, mascots. And if you ever get the chance to return home, take it. And be thankful.
