Few people can resist waving into the camera at a sporting event, and it turns out Washington Capitals owner Ted Leonsis is just as spirited a fan as anyone else.

During the second intermission of the Capitals' game against the Colorado Avalanche Tuesday, the broadcast on CSN Mid-Atlantic cut to fans walking through the Verizon Center.

A couple of them waved and then there was Leonsis popping up in the shot. Leonsis is often among the folks in attendance at Capitals games, so it wasn't unusual that he was in a position to get a little extra camera time. And he definitely didn't waste the opportunity to pull off a good old fashioned videobomb.

Leonsis was a busy man Tuesday. He also recognized Capitals goaltender and 2016 Vezina Trophy winner Braden Holtby with a pregame ceremony and took this adorable photo of Holtby sharing a tender moment with his family.

Tweet from @TedLeonsis: Honoring @Holts170 tonight. #CapsAvs #RockTheRed
