The Capitals are planning an outdoor rally next to the Clarendon Metro station Sunday afternoon.

The Caps pep band and drumline will be on hand starting at 1:00 p.m., along with Slapshot (the Capitals mascot) and the Red Rockers cheerleaders. There will also be balloons for the kids and a slapshot cage for fans to test their hockey skills.

At 3:00 p.m., the rally will head into Hard Times Cafe (3028 Wilson Blvd) to watch Game 3 of the Capitals playoff with the New York Rangers. During the game, there will be raffles of autographed items and a giveaway of two Game 5 playoff tickets.

“We are proud to host this event and bring the Caps Playoff excitement to the streets of Clarendon,” said Hard Times owner Doug Welsh.

    Why is an obscene commercial sports monopoly called the Washington Capitals allowed to hijack public and taxpayer-funded streets and sidewalks to promote their money grubbing commercial venture that provides nothing of value to Arlington taxpayers? Was there any kind of public hearing about this?

      “Nothing of value”? I see an awful lot of out of the area license plates in the Ballston garage because of the Caps being there.

      I agree MC. There was really no one watching it. Maybe a handful of people. It seemed very awkward.

      What is obscene and what makes it a monopoly?
