For those fans who celebrated late into the night, D.C. Deputy Mayor Keith Donahue wrote a tongue-in-cheek tardy note for Friday, WRC reported.
Donahue tweeted a note signed by the DC Government that fans can fill out and present to their employer, WRC reported.
However, it is not a real note.
The note says that "Due to the #ALLCAPS victory last night, your valued employee was Rocking the Red and being DCProud well past a reasonable hour."The note also puts in a request for a sick day in advance of the victory parade in honor of the Capitals' first NHL crown, WRC reported.
