Penguins Fans' Smithsonian Celebration

Living in the Washington DC area, it's always enjoyable when the Pittsburgh Penguins defeat the Washington Capitals. I've written about this several times over the years, but I've had great experiences going to Pens-Caps games at the Verizon Center where the crowd has been evenly split between fans of both teams. As the Caps became a regular playoff team over the past 6-7 years, tickets to these games became more expensive and difficult to get. Even though I personally haven't been to one of these games recently, plenty of Penguins fans still go. Here's a video from Monday night in what has become a really cool tradition, Penguins fans storming the stairs of the Smithsonian American Art Museum after a victory.

Now, check out the guy in the Pens' Fleury jersey around the :25 second mark. Why does he remove the jersey to reveal a Capitals sweatshirt? Did he lose a bet? Who is he? What's his story?

Here are some recaps of the back-to-back Penguins wins over the Caps.
