To honor the Capitals and the Nationals, Capital Bikeshare dyed all its bicycles "Fury Red"/Patricia Leslie

Market research on the street turned up one playoff ticket "upstairs" for only $50 with three handsome dudes, however, the norm Saturday for street prices was $80.  Not bad for a playoff game, especially when fans pay upwards of $80 to sit at the ceiling during the regular season/Patricia Leslie
