Capitals use great note from ‘real doctor’ to excuse fans for parade (pics/vids)

The Washington Capitals on Tuesday morning began their parade through the streets of Washington D.C. surrounded by a sea of humanity to celebrate the organization’s first Stanley Cup.

As teams are wont to do in such situations, the Capitals cleverly created a note from a so-called “real doctor” to excuse fans from work, school, etc. to attend the festivities.

The dispatches from the parade have been coming fast and furious courtesy of the Capitals’ Twitter account.

From the looks of it, getting out of one’s responsibilities and obligations on Tuesday — whether a note from a “real doctor” was needed or not — sure looks like it would have been worth it.
