Adios to the Cap Center

One Last Show at the Old Arena - I saw a note about this earlier in the Post but didn’t comment on it because I wanted to try and dredge up all the events I saw there while in high school. So here are the ones I’ve come up with:

  • A few Bullets games
  • A few Capitals games, including a playoff game with the Islanders in 1987(?) driving to which I got a ticket for reckless driving
  • A few arena football games (I don't even remember the name of the team)
  • Yes (plus waiting for tickets the morning they were issued by fibbing to my folks that I was helping someone deliver the AM newspaper)
  • Boston
  • Peter Gabriel
  • Lynyrd Skynyrd (cause some friends were going, notable for the guy who got struck by lightning in the parking lot)
  • Billy Joel </ul>

    I'm sure there are more, but it's been a while. Obviously I wasn't a rebelious kid in terms of musical tastes :-)
