The World's Youngest Caps Fan

It's with great pride that I'd like to introduce you all to the world's youngest (I think) Caps fan, Joseph Wesley Press, who was born yesterday and already cries less than Sidney Crosby.

Joey waited until Alex Semin won Monday night's game, but less than a half-hour later decided it was time for him to come on out to see for himself whether or not this Caps team is for real, and the wife and I were on our way to the hospital for the delivery of our first-born.

As you may have noticed, posting around here has been and will continue to be light for a few days. But if you guys keep holding up your end of the bargain by keeping the conversation movin', I'll be back soon enough and things will be back to normal... on the blog, that is.

May he skate like Mike Green, light the lamp like Ovey, and slay the ladies like Brooksie.

Congrats, JP.

Earl Sleek said...

You sir are awesome!

CD said...

Will JP disown his own child if he becomes a Sidney fan or would he have to be a Jagr afficionado to make Pop that angry?

Ari said...

Congrats!

But...wondering why you named him after a washed up goalie and a Canes' defenseman?

DCSportsChick said...

Aw, congrats!
Nice use of the Caps scarf!

Rage said...

If JP's kid becomes a Jagr fan, then I'm calling social services.

Hazardous said...

Congrats, dooder.

Congrats!

You should talk to Gustaffson over at OFB for parenting advice. He seems to be doing it right (6th post).

Bubba said...

Congrats JP!

Would you like a 13-year deal, young man?

CONGRATULATIONS!
Have you gotten his first pair of akates picked out yet?

He's got good timing, that's for sure! (...and good fashion sense too. ;) ) My 2nd was kind enough to wait until just after the season was over last April, but she's been trouble ever since. lol

Bundle him up and start bringing him out after a few weeks. I bring my son (now 3yo) to games with me, and he already knows to stand and cheer for goals. He also runs around the house at home saying, "Doot doot doot! Let's go Caps!" Hehe. I'm so proud. You will be too. You'll never know greater love than your children.

What a beautiful baby, congrats!

Gustafsson said...

Congrats to Mom and Dad. Wonderful news. Having expanded our family in mid-November, I know what you're going through.

The littlest one in our family went to his first game at 22 days and there's a season ticket holder family in our section who brought their son to his first game at 11 days. So no pressure on you! ;-)

Glad everyone is doing well and wishes of continued good health to all.

I raise my beer to thee.

Shmee said...

Congrats!

Victor said...

Congratulations, sir. He's already got a game face that'll make Brash think twice about dropping the gloves.

JCN said...

Fricking adorable.

Dezlboy said...

Congrats!!! Best wishes to you and Mom!

Senators Lost Cojones said...

Congratulations JP!! May his fondest Cap Cup dreams come true! Um...not before ours of course...if it's not too much to ask.

JP,
My only parenting tip but a good one to keep in mind: 2 year olds can be trained to yell "you gotta make that save, Olie." I know this from firstand experience.

PPP said...

Big congratulations JP!

CapsChick said...

He's gorgeous, JP! Mazel tov!!

george said...

cheers to you both, he's beautiful. i just became an aunt on New Year's Eve and my niece hadn't even been breathing oxygen for 24 hours before my parents made her the youngest member of the Caps Kids Club, haha. can i let her know she has company to look forward to?

FAUX RUMORS said...

1)Congrats!
2) To put it in perspective. He will be entering high school when AO's contract runs out! Take it from some who know, it goes fast man, enjoy every minute! Even the ones that don't seem so enjoyable at the time. ; )

Donald said...

Congrats JP! Many sleepless nights are ahead. Hopefully he will take his cue from Horn Guy and scream only in 3's to LETS GO CAPS! Ive got a little Caps fan runnin around here too, hes 4 tho, theyre easily brainwashed at the right age.

Joe Wes is THE MAN! He is beautiful. Bravo to you and your wife, JP. Your son is a winner.
