Off to School in Capital Style

OFB reader Paige made our day with her display of Rock the Red spirit this summer. She created a Washington Capitals blanket/quilt (below) for her boyfriend who’s off to college in Chicago ‚Äî one lucky man who hopefully appreciates such a cool and thoughtful gesture. As you can see, Alexander Ovechkin is well represented, and the hand-embroidered “Weagle” is impressive work.
Unfortunately, the Capitals do not travel to Chicago this season so the blanket likely won’t make an appearance in the United Center . . . but we love the idea of this hand-made symbol of home-town loyalty warming a Caps fan in the windy city. Nice work, Paige!
