This gem came to me from the Caps marketing department’s Ryan Smeets who has been collecting Caps broken, game-used sticks for the past few seasons and sending them to a talented artist in California named Alex Rohrig to create the ultimate Caps Eagle. Now this one-of-a-kind piece of Caps art is coming across the country to Verizon Center. Ryan will have the Caps “Weagle” for fans to take pictures of/with at Saturday’s Home Opener and more importantly, you can bid for a chance to purchase this bad boy and have it hanging over your own mantelpiece. He will be set up behind section 119 at Saturday’s game against Carolina with more information about Alex Rohrig and their next Caps-stick project. See you Saturday night. #CapsOpeningNight
Now THAT is one awesome piece of sculpture.
