Caps Fans, 1-27-07

It's always interesting to see who shows up at sporting events especially in D.C., a place that doesn't have the star wattage of places like L.A. or NYC...

Saturday's Caps game, a romp over defending Carolina, had some celebs in the house. What was fun to see was the reaction of the fans when certain people were shown on the big screen scoreboard:

Baltimore Orioles players Adam Loewen and Nick Markakis were booed when shown on the scoreboard telescreen, while D.C. United soccer star Ben Olsen drew cheers from the crowd of 16,924. (from NHL game recap)

D.C. and Baltimore have always had an interesting perception of each other; sometimes the two areas are linked together, other times they don't want to associate with each other. Now that the Nationals are in town, Washingtonians no longer support the O's. But to boo to young O's players? I guess I'm not too surprised. What I am surprised of was the strong and positive reaction fans gave Kimberly McCullough and fellow General Hospital soap star, Jason Thompson during their brief appearance on the Jumbotron late in the 3rd period. I know that they were supposed to be profiled earlier in the period but the flow of the game wouldn't allow that. Not many people approached them in their seats but the second they were on the big screen, there was a line of autograph seekers. Apparently there is a lot of overlap of fans between the Caps and GH. Now that GH stars have visited the Caps, I guess we'll see Ovie or Brashear make an appearance on the soap in the near future?!?
