Last Friday evening I (Jamie Hess father to Nate and Rachel Hess and Shohola alum) went to the Washington Capitals game — 2nd game of the playoff series with the New York Islanders. Caps lost game 1 (I wasn’t at that game) and they really needed to win this game. I went to the game with my cousin Adam Shayne (father of campers Justin and Sophie Shayne)
After the first period, the Caps were losing 1 – 0 and playing poorly.
They played a little better in the 2nd period — tightening the score to 2-1 and then 3-2.
So, you may be asking, why is he telling me this story . . ?
About a quarter of the way through the 3rd period, I got a little cold
— and pulled a long sleeve shirt out of my bag — a gray shirt with SHOHOLA in green across the front — and put it on.
At that point, the game turned around — the Caps not only tied it up, but went ahead 4-3. they also dominated play — outshooting the Islanders like 31 – 16 — actually that stat is shots on Net, they actually took 82 shots to NYI’s 35.
they won the game 4 -3 and tied up the series 1 – 1.
A coincidence Or Camp Shohola Karma? You decide, but my view is that the shirt was the difference.
Go Caps and Go Shohola.
Whether you aced the test, scored a dance with a Netimus gal, or your team makes the winning goal Shohola clothing is in fact magical. Shoop, shoop, shoop!!!
Thanks Jamie for sharing this story.
