This young Washington Capitals fans, already far too familiar with spring disappointment than she should be, wanted nothing more yesterday than a souvenir hockey puck. Caps defenseman Brett Connolly tried to make that dream come true but met some unexpected resistance from an all-time oblivious adult. Or, perhaps, a genius dad who figured out a clever way to get everyone a puck so there’d be no fighting on the car ride home.
What a performance by the kid. Academy Award-winning stuff right here, going through every human emotion in less than a minute and selling it.
