Richmond Times-Dispatch Weekend - - SUNDAY PUNCH -

1. Washington Cap­i­tals

The Cap­i­tals won the Stan­ley Cup, eras­ing 25 years of play­off strug­gles by Washington teams. The Caps trailed in all four se­ries, which is sort of how politi­cians in Washington do things. It wasn’t al­ways pretty, and they took sev­eral punches along the way. But now they’ve won, and they won’t stop talk­ing about their win.

2. Golden State War­riors

The War­riors are champs again, hav­ing won the NBA Fi­nals for a third time in four years. The most tal­ented team won, and it wasn’t that sur­pris­ing or dra­matic. Maybe it’s time the Golden State War­riors be de­clared a monopoly and bro­ken into pieces.

3. Tank Tops

Fol­low­ing a bizarre se­ries of events where a tank-like ve­hi­cle was chased down Broad Street, the Rich­mond Fly­ing Squir­rels con­ceived of a bril­liant spur-ofthe-mo­ment mar­ket­ing cam­paign. They of­fered 25 per­cent off all Squir­rels-brand tank tops for one day only. This is called seiz­ing ev­ery op­por­tu­nity.

4. Young vs. old

The Rich­mond Women’s City Am­a­teur golf tour­na­ment fea­tured a fi­nal round fea­tured 64-year-old Boodie McGurn vs. 14-year-old Ester Choi. Ex­pe­ri­ence pre­vailed, and McGurn claimed the ti­tle. Here’s a good ex­am­ple of two ath­letes not act­ing their age.
