Caps Lessons For n00bz: Joe Beninati & His Suits

DC Sports Nexus ---- Monday, November 14, 2011

I was always wondering why Russian Machine Never Breaks had the "Joe B Suit Of The Night" for each game recap during the year. They even have a story called "Joe Beninati: The Year In Suits" which chronicles Joe B fashion in a slideshow from last season's games.

So I did some research and found some things out. Joe Beninati is one of the Capitals TV announcers. (Ok I already knew that) He used to have commercials (that I cannot find) for local suit store Bruno Cipriani in White Flint Mall. This probably helped him to accumulate his collection of suits. In a recent radio interview with the Sports Junkies, Joe B said he owned between 90 and 100 suits, not including all his sports jackets.

"I have dress shirts in so many different closets it is embarrassing" - Joe B

That is crazy. I have like 1 suit. You can turn 1 suit into 100 suits by wearing different shirts & ties! Although I'm not wearing a suit every day. Weddings, Funerals, Job Interviews. All the same suit...
