Let’s Go Caps

At nearly every home game for the Washington Capitals (depending on the score) the jumbotron focus on a seemingly random individual in the lower deck. This person then stands up and leads the nearly 19,000 Caps fans in a simple yet effective “Let’s Go Caps” chant. It took me a few home games before I realized this guy was a virtual institution within the fanbase. This man, William Stilwell or the Loud Goat as he is known to the Capitals faithful joins me for Episode 92 of Just Talking. We discuss the origins of his nickname, the exact moment Washington D.C. became a hockey town, and what it is like to command an entire arena of fans for 30 seconds.

We’re hardcore hockey in this episode, but there’s something in this episode for everybody. Enjoy.
