#4 Attend a Washington Football Team game
Even though it isn’t hockey, the start of football season signals that hockey season is right around the corner and we can’t wait for both. Expect the Capitals and the Washington Football Team to steal the show this fall. Sometimes if you’re lucky, you may even spot a Capitals player chillin on the sidelines before the game. Maybe Alex Ovechkin is there or Tom Wilson.
Last year after the bubble there was a huge sports void in Washington as we all awaited a new hockey season. We had to wait until January but in the meantime we watched a young and exciting Washington Football Team embark on a new era and that new era is off to a solid start as they finished the 2020 season as NFC East champions.
In the playoffs against Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, they played so well that I wasn’t mad that they lost. In fact, quarterback Taylor Heinicke made an electrifying play running into the end zone for an epic touchdown.
With a quarterback competition between him and Ryan Fitzpatrick as well as an exciting defense led by Jonathan Allen and Chase Young, expect the Football Team to continue to make noise.
