Amy Parker of Manassas, Virginia, goes all out for the Caps at work. "I have been a Caps fan since 2007 and fell so I love that I decided that I should be a fan 365 days of the year. I wear red everyday in some shape or form along with my Caps gear. There have been some painful moments but I am praying all the demons are banished tonight. Attached are pictures of my workspace which I call Caps-land. This is with total encouragement from my employer. Enjoy and LET’S GO CAPS!" (Photo courtesy Amy Parker)
