CSN Mid-Atlantic has always done a great job when it comes to fan interaction. From their pre and post game shows, the pregame and intermission Facebook Live events, Twitter questions, live polls and CSN Fan Night, the Caps crew from CSN continues to evolve the broadcast game. During last night’s game against the Predators, broadcast icons Joe Beninati and Craig Laughlin called the game from the lower bowl in section 110. 

If you’ve ever been to a Capitals game at Verizon Center, chances are you’ve noticed the press box located at the top of the arena. That’s the typical home of the unsung heroes that bring the game coverage to you. But on this night, being downstairs among the red clad fans was a different feel for Joe B and Locker.

T-shirt tosses have always been a big part of sporting events and Laughlin got in on the fun!

Joe B and Locker pointed out during the broadcast how different it was watching the game from the two viewpoints. From their experience in the pressbox, which would be similar to sitting at the very top of the “nosebleeds”, they mentioned how they can see the player formations better, and that the game slows down. From the lower level in the stands? Joe B and Locker mentioned that the game seems much quicker.

As Caps fans we all admire what Joe B and Locker bring to us each and every game. And it showed well tonight all over Caps Twitter.

They even got in on the St. Patrick’s Day spirit!

Here’s to hoping Joe Beninati and Craig Laughlin do more broadcasts from the stands in the future.
