TXHT Jersey Share – Taking it Outdoors

In today’s edition of TXHT Jersey Share we head outdoors for the 2011 NHL Winter Classic and the beautiful jersey the Washington Capitals brought back to life.

When it was announced that the Pittsburgh Penguins were going to host their long time rival Capitals for the 2011 Winter Classic at Heinz Field many began to speculate what jersey the Capitals could be wearing for the game. Given the first few years were throwbacks to what was worn in the past or a take on what was part of that cities history it was all but expected the bring back theor retro red, white, and blue jerseys for the Classic. That became all but confirmed when the logos for the two teams were unveiled and then at Fan Fest the official unveiling of the jerseys by Alex Ovechkin, Yvon Labre, and Rod Langway.

 

It’s a very beautiful jersey that works with today’s team, and by this jersey being introduced for the Classic it allowed it to come back full time as an alternate, first as the retro white, then as the retro red.
