Recorded April 12, 2021

It was another semi-successful week for Our Washington Capitals. Literally. They won half their games in the week.  The Mermaid and I go over each win and loss as only we can. Prepare for a caffeine-fueled rundown like no other.

In our Special Segment we go over the reasoning for the recent deals that saw us waving goodbye to Jake the Snake Vrana and Richard Panik. A full evaluation will have to come later as we are, for the most part, withholding judgment.

Don't forget to catch Anna for CapsTalk every Monday night at 9 pm ET on the Sports on the Hill Podcast live on Facebook and the TRU Radio network.

Happy Easter!  The Mermaid returns from the deep!

Anna comes back to comment initially on her time off and how she was affected (and still is) by some poor management from her streaming service.  Seriously, anyone with any ideas of how she can watch games without paying a small fortune with it please let us know.

We recap the games (including today's) that were played in in the past week in our own hilarious way. This includes a nefarious attack on my person during one of the games. I'm still recovering, thanks for asking....

Then there's the McNugget Minute...........you do the math. Think we have anything good say?  Listen and find out!

Anna is still out on Sprong, er Spring Break so Mrs. Blueliner joins me again for another episode. We begin by recapping another perfect week for Our Caps. Unfortunately perfection isn't all it's made out to be as includes a nailbiter of a finish to the week.

We move on to a quick recap of the Isobel Cup playoffs and a brief history lesson. Suffice it to say women have a solid place in hockey lore. And always will.

Ending on an even more sentimental note, the Mrs. takes the spotlight, telling her story about how she got into hockey and eventually into the Caps.  Looks like a certain fella in her had something to do with it...She also give her thoughts on women in hockey and sports in general and what the future may hold.

Thanks again for indulging us....we appreciate your making us a part of your Caps experience!

Anna is off for 2 weeks for Spring Break so the Seamstress for the Band Mrs. Blueliner is providing the filling in for this cherry pie of a Podcast. Speaking of Spring, isn't it nice to have warmer weather? And isn't it nice to have hockey IN the warmer weather?  Yeah we seem to think so....

We go over the tail end of the Caps' recent 7-game win streak as well as some surprise news that happened earlier in the day.

Halfway to the playoffs and Our Washington Capitals are looking good.

Spring is in the air so naturally we keep our hearts tuned into a winter sport...but first we explain our adjustments towards a (hopefully) post-COVID world.

Anna and I recap a 4-0 week for Our Capitals. Yes it was four wins out of four games but there are some things to be improved upon.  We go over all the details good and bad in our own way.

If you are a Caps fan of the female persuasion, please consider joining us for our all-female show coming up before the end of the month.  Come on the podcast and tell your story as a Caps fan we would love to hear it!

So how was this week like the movie Moulin Rouge?  It started off well enough and ended BAD!

Anna the Mermaid and I go over the week's action on the ice. What went right and what went wrong.

And we might as well get to it---most of the show is dedicated to the idiocy that was the NHL's decision to suspend Tom Wilson (again). But it's not quite what you think....each of us presents a solid breakdown of what is wrong with this entire situation as only we can do. Listen and get mad but hopefully enjoy as well.

Don't give up Caps Fans, we aren't even halfway home yet.  And there's a lot of games to be played...and won.  Don't stop cheering for our Caps!

RIP Walter Gretzky and Mark Pavelich

We end the month of February on another winning note for our Caps. Anna and I recap another week's worth of action. Our notes include a stinging review of the recent play from a Caps center (hint---it is NOT Backstrom).  We also go over the details of a potential Goal of the Year candidate in one of the games.

In the second part of the episode we honor Black History Month as we welcome one newcomer and a familiar voice to the podcast. Listeners Tyron Waller and Stewart Small speak of their experiences as Caps fans and lend their thoughts and ideas as to the state of the sport and what can be done to improve participation and inclusion from the African-American community.

With Vrana-like speed Anna the Mermaid and I go through a recap of the previous 5 games---yes 5 thanks to our COVID exile---as only we can. We spare no opinions good or bad as we go over what a sometimes rocky but ultimately successful week.

What follows is an overall analysis of the Caps' performance now that they have hit the quarter mark of this short season.  We are ably assisted as usual by Robbie Gross  of the Sports on the Hill Podcast who provides his usual spot-on observations and commentary. And perhaps some hockey fashion tips?

We end with an appeal to all Caps fans in the African-American community--make your voices heard and come join us next week to tell your stories as Caps fans and what it means to you to be a part of this great group of fans.

 

Don't forget to join Carroll Porter III with Robbie and Anna for Caps Talk on the Sports on the Hill Podcast every Monday night on Facebook Live and the TRU Radio Network.

Anna returns for another week of Caps analysis. It was a not-so-successful week of games for Our Capitals.  We recap the two games not covered already.  Please catch last week's Sports on the Hill Podcast Caps Talk for our recap of the Feb. 1 game against Boston.
 
Before that I begin with a brief dedication to two recently fallen giants in the entertainment industry---Larry King and Mary Wilson.
 
We close with a stern message directed at the NHL's recent (mis)handling of their own COVID19 protocol and how it's affected the Caps as well as the whole league's scheduling.
 
(apologies for the earlier technical issues.....if you're reading this it should be the full episode)

Filling in this week for an under-the-weather Anna (No she does NOT have COVID) is my wonderful wife Jennie, that noted mask maker.  We discuss the key concepts to the Caps' success so far this year while recapping this week's results. It is great to be a Caps fan.

Speaking of Caps' fans we present a post by Caps fan Mike Stepp of the Caps Fans Facebook group on the meaning of what it is to be a Washington Capital and why it is the most special bond in sports.
