Longtime goalie Olaf Kolzig began his NHL career in 1989 in the old red, white and blue. In fact, he played his first game for the Capitals when he was just 19.
In those early days, Olie apparently ate his postgame meal on the ice while still in uniform.
Other disturbing issues raised by this hockey card:
Kolzig's tribute-to-Elvis hairdo...
The creepy fish-eye lens...
And why is his name, "Olaf", spelled out in mustard?
The people who brought you Woodward and Bernstein decided to train their investigative lens on this mystery. The Post article left no pun unturned:
"Frankly... card is a wiener."
"Athletes are hot dogs."
"Plays with lots of mustard."
"Relishing the feeling."
"Every hot dog has his day."
There's more, but since you're probably starting to gag, let's just say the article was the wurst.
