Capitals fans make 'Ice Cheetah' head in honor of Jason Chimera

Thursday January 22nd, 2015

Washington Capitals forward Jason Chimera has one of the coolest nicknames in the NHL—"Ice Cheetah." Now, thanks to some enterprising young fans, Chimera has some headgear to match the nickname.  

Don't worry, no animals were harmed in the production of this cheetah head. Instead, according to The Washington Post, fans Alex Georgiadis and Lindsay Droter used $100 in pillow foam and cheetah-print material to make a giant, blue cheetah head. You know, an Ice Cheetah. Here are some pictures from the game they brought the head to:

That's not bad at all for a homemade animal head.
