So the Caps did their Better Halves Gift baskets today, where the players and their partners put together gift baskets for fans to bid on in a raffle. Usually there’s a lot of autographed clothing and swag, but there tend to be some… interesting things as well. Latta and Wilson DID THEIR BASKET TOGETHER. They are each other’s better halves.
Look at what these goobers had in their basket:
2 Team-signed Capitals Premier Jerseys
Autographed Tom Wilson Capitals Jersey T-Shirt
Autographed Michael Latta Capitals Jersey T-Shirt
Capitals Puck Autographed by Tom Wilson

You should check all the players’ baskets out, they’re amazing. Ovi has so much Coca Cola and Russian stuff in his, Nicky has Sir Kensington Mayonnaise and oatmeal raisin cookies, and Brooks Orpik’s has… a surprising lack of kale.
