Backstrom To Throw Out First Pitch

The Caps' new Swedish sensation, Nicklas Backstrom, will be introduced to his soon-to-be adopted hometown not on Monday as previously expected, but on Sunday when he throws out the first pitch before the Nats/Orioles game.

You'll recall that both Chris Clark and Alex Ovechkin (pictured) have previously done the honors, begging the question, "What does Olie Kolzig have to do to get an invite?"

His pitch needs to be different than most. Make it clear what his role is, he's the setup man. Ovechkin needs to be at the plate and he needs to take Foppa Jr's fat pitch yard as a sign of things to come.

If he Harding'ed a Penguin, it'd go a long way...

OH. Also Esa Tikanen. Crazy Fin.
