Heads Up

The crowds for Washington’s recent home games have been loud and large, and the assemblage for Sunday’s battle with the Bruins should be no different.

For those of you planning to attend Sunday’s 3 p.m. game between the Caps and Bruins, you should be aware of the following information:

The Metropolitan Police Department wishes to advise the public that the St. Patrick Day’s Parade is scheduled to be held on Sunday, March 16, 2008. In order to facilitate this event, no parking will be allowed on the following streets between the 5 am and 3 pm on the day of the parade.

Constitution Avenue NW, between 6th Street and 23rd Street, NW

7th Street NW, between Independence Avenue and Pennsylvania Avenue, NW

14th Street NW, between Independence Avenue and Pennsylvania Avenue, NW

12th Street NW, between the SE/SW Freeway and Pennsylvania Avenue, NW

17th Street NW, between E Street NW and Independence Avenue, SW

The above listed streets will also be closed beginning at approximately 11 am until the completion of the parade. In addition 7th Street, NW, between Constitution Avenue and Independence Avenue, NW will be closed at approximately 7 am for parade assembly. Motorists should be alerted to these restrictions and expect possible traffic delays while traveling in the area of this event.

Hope to see you there!

    Kind of makes me wonder if Verizon Center will be serving green beer for the game on Sunday. Not that I drink the stuff, but hey, some do, so…

    And will they play “Top O’ the Mornin’ To Ya” since it’s almost Saint Patrick’s Day? Probably not, but if they do have to play House of Pain, at least they can do “Jump Around.”

    Or something. Don’t mind me.–CS

    Not to mention the ongoing (some may say endless) and still EXTREMELY ANNOYING weekend Red Line repairs and delays: http://www.wmata.com/about/met_news/story.cfm?ID=1740

    Add thirty minutes to your Red Line ride.

    I was there, along with 18,000 plus fans, the Caps, the Bruins, the media.

    Just wish someone had told the real NHL officials about the traffic issues so they could have made it to the game as opposed to the four clueless zebras who were lost at sea on the ice…

  4. CapitalSpirit Says:

    Mike L, please. Let it go, already. We won the game.

    Granted, we had to beat the both the Bruins and the zebras to do it, but we still got it done. I know we tend to get out-reffed when we’re up against the Original Six, but we survived that one. Next stop, Nashville, the Preds, and four wins in a row. (Gotta believe!)
