You’ve never seen a commemorative T-shirt quite like this.
Bud Light is giving away Washington Capitals shirts at bars in the D.C. area this week ahead of the Capitals‘ game Wednesday, a Stanley Cup Final rematch against the Vegas Golden Knights. When the Capitals won that series for the first Cup in franchise history, everyone saw the partying that commenced, including T.J.

.@Capitals fans, there’s nothing quite like pulling a championship jersey over your head and drinking a Bud Light through it. A close second, you can pull this shirt over your head and take a drink of Bud Light through it! Pick yours up at bars during this week’s rematch game. pic.twitter.com/9EEYmEyX9T
“It’s happened a lot. I’ve told probably 90 percent of the people, ‘No, I’m good,’” Oshie said.
It’s not Bud Light’s first sports-centered gimmick this year. They placed fridges of free Bud Light in select Cleveland bars that would only be unlocked when the Browns finally broke their infamous losing streak — which they did in Week 3 of this season.
