CAPITALS SAY GOODBYE TO RED, WHITE, & BLUE IN UNIFORM SWITCH

     The Capitals will change their uniform and create a new logo
for next season, according to Len Hochberg in today's WASHINGTON
POST.  They will "unveil a new uniform next month, changing the
red, white and blue colors" they have worn since their '74-75
inaugural season.  Capitals VP of Communications Ed Quinlan said
the team "wanted a more contemporary look ... We're moving into a
new arena, with new and younger fans."  Sources say the team will
switch colors, but "the new colors are being kept a secret until
the unveiling, tentatively set for June 22."  The uniform change
will also enable the franchise for the first time to design a
logo.  One Caps employee:  "We never had a logo, we always had a
'word'" (Len Hochberg, WASHINGTON POST, 5/26).
