You Might Not Follow Hockey, But...

...Please root for the Washington Capitals on the strength of this fan demonstration last night:

Capitals fans ensured that Boston Bruins goaltender Tim Thomas finally came face to face with the President in Washington on Monday night.

Thomas famously boycotted his team's visit to the White House in January after last year's Stanley Cup victory, in protest at Barack Obama's stewardship of the federal government.

But he could not avoid him when he took to the ice Monday at Verizon Center after the home crowd plastered the boards with images of Obama's head and donned masks with the President's face.
