Lifelong Caps fan tells why he refused to drink champagne from Stanley Cup in 1998. (NewsChannel 8)

NewsChannel 8's Dave Lucas adds to the celebration of the Washington Capitals winning the Stanley Cup with a story that was 20 years in the making.

Brad Parker was one of Dave's colleagues at NewsChannel 8 in 1998. He joined Dave on the phone Tuesday to tell his story of the last time the Capitals played in The Stanley Cup Final.

Brad was covering sports then and compared the deathly pall over the Caps locker room with the celebration in the Detroit Red Wings locker room after they swept the Caps in four games.

Wanting to see how the Red Wings were celebrating, Brad slipped into the locker room and sat down.

Players were passing The Cup around filled with champagne, taking turns drinking from it.

Watch the video to find out what Brad did when The Cup was offered to him.
