Marcus Johansson and Nick Backstrom wore suits and rode bikes on their path to silver. The lasting image of the Olympic games, we’ve decided, won’t be Nick Backstrom looking like a sad Swedish puppy at a press conference; it’ll be he and Mojo looking like toughest and most fashionable dudes ever to ride bikes.
Wear this shirt if you can master the art of being tough, stylish, and dorky as hell all at once.
Look like me! Oh wait, you’ll never get a date then.
I’m gonna take a wild guess here, and you let me know if I’m wrong: I bet you’ve a) got friends and/or family who b) like hockey and c) have torsos. Good news for both of us, because I’m right and here are bunch of new RMNB t-shirts for you to give as gifts to your loved ones just in time for the holidays! Except Hanukkah. You already missed that one– way to go, dude.

Hockey players are accustomed to terrible nicknames; they’ve got a lot. The current iteration of the Washington Capitals includes Patsy (Aaron Volpatti), Crabber (Joey Crabb), and Carly (John Carlson). Now we know Steve Oleksy‘s too, though he won’t be happy with RMNB once his teammates read this. See: Oleksy’s lifelong nickname isn’t Stevie O (as head Adam Oates called him); it’s Binky. And we’ve got the story behind that.
“When I was younger, I was sick and I was in the hospital quite a bit,” Oleksy told me recently. “I called my pacifier my binky, and every time I started crying the nurses would tell my mom to put my binky in. She started calling me that, and then the kids at school caught on, and it just kind of grew with me.”
Listen: I know the Capitals are a regional team, drawing fans from Maryland and Virginia, in addition to the District. But Piney Orchard and Capital Centre are proof that the team’s roots are deep in the Old Line State. And it’s for fans from the great state of Maryland that we debut this new RMNB shirt.
As Caps fans, most of us were already aware that Matt Hendricks was awesome. Perhaps we were not aware until this season just how awesome he really was, but we’ve had our eyes opened one shootout stunner and monster playoffs shift at a time. As the games have gotten bigger, so has he. All-Star goaltenders everywhere have come to fear him, and superstars brace themselves when they see him about to finish a check.
In honor of the nickname Craig Laughlin coined for Hendy earlier in the season — “The Paralyzer” — we present our new Minnesota license plate inspired t-shirt, lovingly designed by Ian Oland. You can check the shirts out in our t-shirt store here. Also, shipping is free right now through May 8th when you place an order over $30. Just use the coupon code MOTHERSDAY12 at checkout.
