“Dear PoPville,

Last night my friend and I came to a hockey game and when security personnel saw Ukrainian flags, they told us Ukrainian flags are not permitted by Capital One Arena and wouldn’t let us in unless we get rid of the flags.

Keep in mind Ovechkin, the captain of Capitals still has a profile photo on his Instagram with Putin.”
