RIP: The Capstronaut

It is with a heavy heart today that we unveil the demise of one of the Washington Capitals’ fans: The Capstronaut. We learned today that the middle-aged fan who managed to keep his identity a secret while racking up dinner invites from Ted Leonsis and interviews with Washingtonian and Dan Steinberg’s DC Sports Bog will not be returning for the Caps 2010-11 season. Our good friend The Horn Guy broke the news:

No word if the Capstronaut made a voyage to a galaxy far, far away- or just across 7th street to the Rocket Bar for last call- but just as mysteriously as he came to the Verizon Center, he has disappeared.
