As RMNB’s resident artist, I love seeing artwork by fellow Caps fans. When reader Patti del Pielago sent us these illustrations of her creation “Hello Neuvy,” I fell in love with them immediately.
After several jokes emerged between Patti and her boyfriend about how “precious” Michal Neuvirth is, the two created this cuddly feline version of the Capitals netminder.
UPDATE: Well, it looks like you guys listened. After the D.C. Sports Bog and Puck Daddy picked up on our story, these went flying off the shelves and sold-out in less than two hours! The Capitals are now accepting pre-orders for the next shipment.
We here at RMNB take Violent Torpedos of Truth seriously. So when I found out about this #Winning Charlie Sheen inspired t-shirt that would go on sale today at 10am at Kettler Capitals Iceplex, I just had to share it. For just $17.99 you can become a warlock too. If you’re interested make sure to get them fast as this is a limited run.
Special thanks to @Katerstheace on Twitter for making this public and Tim Burt, Retail Operations Manager at KCI for creating them.
RMNB’s own Rachel Cohen created this Valentine for Matt Bradley
In honor of Valentine’s Day and to drown your sorrows after the latest Caps loss, we asked our readers to submit their very own cards addressed to a Capitals player. And oh, boy, did you listen. We’ve included many of your submissions but have narrowed it down to five finalists. From there, you guys will vote to pick the winner, who will receive one of our lovely — no pun intended — t-shirts. Voting will last until Wednesday night at midnight. And FYI, some of these cards may be NSFW. Proceed with caution!
The NHL has been trickling out superheroes to promote the All-Star Game. The Guardian Project challenges comics legend Stan Lee (and possibly artist Neal Adams) to create a “guardian” for each team in the league. Sunday sees the debut of the Capital, an eagle-headed thing that sees real far.
Since we at Russian Machine are totals nerds for comics, we thought we’d play, too. Penciled by resident artist Rachel Cohen and inked & colored by Ian Oland, we have created our own version of The Capital– your lame, crass and tokenistic, D.C.-themed superhero™ guardian.
Rachel Cohen, RMNB’s resident illustrator, made this awesome sign for tonight’s game. Please make sure to keep a look out for her during the national broadcast. She will be holding this sign proudly all night. Most importantly, now that we’re less than an hour away from the game…
LET’S GO CAPS!!
Today, pro airbrush artist and custom mask painter David Gunnarsson released photos of the new mask he painted for Semyon Varlamov. He also shared some of the inspiration and backstory behind the mask’s creation.
People don’t understand the true meaning of Halloween. It’s not about collecting candy or doing keg stands at Peter’s house; it’s about scaring the living bejesus out of children. Knowing this, RMNB reader Mandy expertly extched Ovi’s cretinous countrenance into a pumpkin, and we couldn’t be prouder. There’s nothing scarier than an angry, 235 lbs. Russian with fiery eyes and the will to break you.
