Welcome to another edition of TXHT Jersey Share, and we got a battle tested jersey for you today.
So for today’s jersey it is the Washington Capitals away jersey that was introduced in 2007 for the 2007-08 season and was worn all the way to 2016-17 when Adidas took over from Reebok. This was the first of two away jerseys I bought for the Capitals, the other one to be featured later in this series.
So this was one of the first jerseys that I actually got my name and number on the back that wasn’t a jersey that I got for a team that I played for. However, this did become a jersey that I would wear regularly as one of my ball hockey teams wore white, but didn’t have an official team uniform so I wore this one, and then when Russian Machine Never Breaks held their second annual ball hockey tournament Team TXHT wore white and this was the jersey I wore when we played, and to great success too.
Yup. Team TXHT defeated Team RMNB 1-0 in the Championship Game of the 2017 2nd Annual RMNB Ball Hockey Tournament. It was a great accomplishment and it was done wearing this jersey. And if Ian and RMNB want a rematch, they know where to find me. 😉
