Ravens head coach John Harbaugh was reportedly displayed on the scoreboard at the Verizon Center for Washington’s playoff opener on Wednesday against the New York Rangers. Harbaugh shouted “let’s go Caps,” and was apparently booed by fans in attendance.
106.7 The Fan’s Capitals beat reporter Sky Kerstein tweeted the news during the game. Kerstein said Harbuagh got “booed loudly” by the fans at the Verizon Center.
If Harbaugh was shown on TV, I must have missed it. I’ve searched the interwebs for more fans or reporters talking about why Harbaugh was booed by the Washington crowd, but haven’t had much luck finding anything.
We’ve talked about the love for the Capitals in Baltimore, perhaps the Redskins faithful weren’t fans of seeing Harbs on the scoreboard. The only other theory I could think of is that Ravens fans are upset with the head coach after Baltimore’s finish last season…
It’s all speculation at this point. If anyone was there or saw it on TV, feel free to chime in on the comments.
