Remember when these "Washington Capitals Ms. Piggy" pins were flying off the shelves faster than stores could stock them?
No? Me either. Maybe fans were too busy snapping up these Washington Capitals Toothbrushes.
On the topic of collectibles, marvel at the clairvoyance inside the lid of one soda bottle.
The photographic evidence is undeniable. Back in 1980, a Canadian Pepsi bottler was first to forshadow Montreal defenseman Rod Langway as... a Cap.
(Do you suppose two summers later, after being named Capitals G.M., David Poile popped open this refreshing beverage, and got the inspiration to make the monumental trade that brought Langway to D.C.? No, I didn't think so.)
Here in the Internet age, posters can list their "status" on social networking sites.
Back in the '80's, the Caps offered this manual version in pin form. Denis Potvin has the puck? Set the Fun Meter to "Lo". Mike Gartner steals it and scores! Move that needle to "Hi"!
We can only conjecture why fans stopped wearing the pin. Perhaps their moms feared that too much touching their own Fun Button could make them go blind.
