Did the blizzard ruin your weekend? Chances are, a pair of Caps fans from Sweden have got you beat.
Simon Thurgren and Andreas Forsman flew in from Sweden to see a pair of Caps games this weekend...just to see them both get rescheduled because of the snow.
The disappointment just reached the top! No #caps game for me this time and we're stuck inside haha

That stinks. And, as Thurgren and Forsman are from Sweden where there's always lots of snow, they probably think we're all a bunch of wimps now too.
So this trip was a loss, but there may still be a happy ending to this story now that owner Ted Leonsis has heard about their plight.
Just saw this - we will invite these fans as our guests to Owners Box! Stay tuned. https://t.co/KyRKvPltmN

Thurgren and Forsman won't get their two games back, but maybe a game from the owner's box on Leonsis' dime will help make up for it.
UPDATE: As it turns out, Thurgren and Forsman were not the only international pair with really bad timing. Pedro Tulio Rocha decided to make the trip with his son all the way from Brazil, but the snow ruined their plans too.

Let's hope Leonsis hears about it so their story can end with a happy ending, too!
