This is the time of year that is truly fantasy football winter.
One of the other sports which I, and at least my sons, really get into is Hockey.
We have been avid fans of the Capitals and have thoroughly enjoyed this years season.
So, just as the football season ends, the Hockey season takes what is like a all star break in Baseball. A sort of Pro Bowl of international hockey.
Yes, just in case you have been hiding under a rock, or 2 - 3 feet of snow....
The 2010 Olympics have started. This means the NHL is taking a break because many NHL players are now playing for their native country hockey teams.
The Capitals have 5 players.
Tomas Fleischmann will represent the Czech Republic.
Nicklas Backstrom was named to the Swedish team.
Alex Ovechkin, Alexander Semin and Semyon Varlamov were named to the Russian team.
I admit, I really will have mixed loyalties but regardless of who plays, will have fun watching!
Go Caps! Go Team USA!
