Wayback Wednesday: Siblings in the City

Today’s picture – of me with my sister and brother back before I moved to DC – is in honor of the fact that tonight, for the first time in years, I’m going to a Caps game with both of my siblings. Back in the day, after both Jen (Brian’s now-wife) and I had moved to DC/NoVa, we used to buy the family four-pack tickets and sit way up high, with our free hotdogs and screaming eagle caps, in a fairly empty arena. Eileen moved away five or six years ago, and she’s only been back for a game a few times in the “Rock the Red” era, but never for the playoffs. I can pretty much guarantee that the atmosphere tonight will be 100% the opposite of our family four-pack days. (Go Caps!)

Anyway, I am not 100% sure when this picture was taken – it’s either 1996 or 1997, in November, because my then-roommate Shannon and I came down for Veteran’s Day weekend for a couple of years before I moved here, which I did in February 1998.

  1. Love the photo!!! You three look so young :)
    I’d rather be at the game with all of you than touring middle school tonight :0 Have some beer for me.
    Go CAPS!

  2. 2 hockey games for the price of 1, and 2 playoff games at that! Guess your brother never found some baseball to watch?

  3. Did I take that picture?? I don’t remember being there with all of your siblings in one place in DC , but I suppose it’s possible.

    I *think* that’s your wax jacket from Ireland that you’re wearing, if that’s any help for year….
