RMNB & Its Readers Wish Alex Ovechkin Happy Birthday

RMNBs Birthday Card for Alex Ovechkin.

We asked you, the noble hordes of the Russian Machine, to congratulate our hero Alex Ovechkin on his 25th year of life.  You had to make a birthday card.  The only rule was that you had to use a cheap graphic editor to make it.

What we didn’t tell you was that we didn’t have to follow the same rules. Above, is our card for Ovi via new RMNB illustrator, Rachel Cohen. Welcome to the team!

RMNB Exclusive: Bruce Boudreau’s New Commercial

What happened here?

Nothing gets me more excited for the upcoming hockey season than local commercials featuring some of the Capitals biggest stars.  The summer has already brought us a Capital One campaign with Alex Ovechkin checking a Visigoth through the glass and another of him moving new Redskins QB Donovan McNabb into the area.
