Capitals giving out Backstrom gnomes for Feb. 5 game vs. Maple Leafs
(Backstrom Gnome SCOARSSSS!)
Earlier today, those on the Washington Capitals mailing list received a message saying that those in attendance of the Capitals' February 5 home game against the Toronto Maple Leafs would receive a Nicklas Backstrom gnome. I'm not sure what occasion warrants the giveaway of a miniature gnome, much less one that is supposed to be a Swedish center, but I digress. I wouldn't give this thing to my kid (if I had one). It's a bit creepy.
That looks more like John Carlson than Backstrom, really. Oh well.
Does the allure of a free gnome make you more likely to attend that game? Or does it freak you out a little bit?
