Penguins beat Capitals despite presence of David Letterman's beard

This is somewhat trivial--but we have always been a fan of David Letterman, so we will post this.

Thursday night--the former late-night Talk Show host made a rare--very rare--appearance in public. And this time it was at a Hockey Game.

Letterman showed up in the stands at the Capitals opening game of their Best of 7 Stanley Cup Playoff Series with the Pittsburgh Penguins.

And maybe we're wrong---but he kinda was sporting a bit of a "Santa Claus" playoff beard....

Yes, that's his wife--we think--in the video with him. But folks---come on. Tell me the above and below pictures don't look remarkably similar.....

Anyway, despite the "Brush With Greatness" for the Caps on their home ice at the Verizon Center, the Penguins stole a Game 1 win in dramatic fashion with a 3-2 win.....

Game 2 in D.C is Saturday night.....
