"What was my favorite team really like when I was growing up? During the ‘70’s and ‘80’s, columnists and TV sports anchors were criminally negligent about reporting on the Caps, and before blogs and TV hockey channels, there weren’t any other options. So I dug into it.
"Now, like Marty McFly in Back To The Future, you’re invited to buckle up your DeLorean, set the Flux Capacitor for Landover, Md., 1974, to read what I uncovered.
"What you won’t find is coaching strategy, trade analysis, or line combinations. That stuff is boring. Also, no effort to be comprehensive. Results, stats, and scores are all online.
"Numbers can be fun, but only when they contribute to a good tale. That’s the goal of this book; bite-sized stories which are interesting, funny, or poignant, even for non-Caps fans."
