Taylor Heinike was the guest of honor at the Capitals-Red Wings game on Monday. And I’m happy to report that the Commanders quarterback has had more fun than in virtually any other arena.
Heinicke, who is 5-2-1 since replacing Carson Wentz, rocked his new Tom Wilson Reverse Retro jersey on the sidelines.
In the third period, Heinicke got the fans to come out by clinking a Bud Light on camera. He partially crushed the can on his head and threw it away.

This is absolutely the type of leadership I want my hometown quarterback to have.
During the game, Heinicke also demanded a fight in his Instagram Story. He eventually got one of sorts when Anthony Mantha crashed along the boards.
He also celebrated wildly after Dmitri Orlov’s overtime winner.
Heinike was happily taking pictures with fans throughout the night. (Shoot us if you have one.)
Taylor was great with the Caps fans tonight. My team snuck into the picture during a break in the 3rd period. Hats win. Big night. Thanks to Jim Van Stone and the hats. pic.twitter.com/jR9d9XBPiM

Glad you’re playing, Taylor. Since the Caps won with you here, that means you can’t miss another one for the rest of the season.
