It’s become a tradition in recent years. Team’s arriving at the Winter Classic or other outdoor games have begun dressing as a team, often in some form of game-related theme. Today’s team arrivals for the 2023 Stadium Series Game between the Capitals and Hurricanes was no different.
The Capitals arrived at Carter-Finley Stadium in public school buses, decked out in high-school/college football attire, complete with letterman’s jackets, and each player holding a football. They jumped off the school buses to a mix of cheers and boos.

Those jackets are dope. I bet they fetch $500
Must. Get. Jacket.
Good looking jackets.
Alan was in NBCSW jacket but why does Alexa not wear Caps colors?
