If you are a local sports fan, you’d better be paying attention to how well the Washington Capitals are playing this year. They have the best record in the NHL, and are an exciting, high-powered team to watch as well. Local businesses are taking note too, and tying in their advertising with Caps promotions. I was on the Caps website earlier today and noticed that a local Maryland replacement windows company, Long Fence and Home (aka Long Windows and Long Kitchens) is having a free jersey giveaway – the jersey is signed by the ENTIRE TEAM!
