baseball-playoff-shirts

Update: Shirts are still available. Get on it.

DMV sports fans are living high on the hog. The Baltimore Orioles and Washington Nationals have each won their divisions and are now poised for the postseason. The Orioles just finished their best season probably since 1997, and the Nats closed out the regular with a dramatic no-hitter for Jordan Zimmermann. It’s good times on both ball fields.

Yet there are those among us who say you must choose one team and hate the other. The fan police say no true fan can support both Washington and Baltimore at the same time. They say support for one team is betrayal of the other.

Nuts to that. Instead, you and I shall stand shoulder to shoulder, and we’ll don this nifty new RMNB t-shirt, and we shall say, NATRIOLES MAGICTUDE, ‘HON.

RMNB’s 202 DC Sports Pride Shirts

202-callout-headline

On Thursday after we published our story about Brooks Orpik and his poor t-shirt selection, reader Manda made a simple suggestion: “You guys should make a 202 pride shirt!”

202 represents the area code of good ol’ Washington DC. As Wikipedia puts it:

202 is the North American telephone area code for Washington, D.C. It was one of the area codes originally assigned in October 1947. The capital was assigned 202 because the North American Numbering Plan Administration wanted to keep the number of “clicks” to a minimum for densely populated areas, given the rotary dialing technology in use at the time.

So Thursday night, I gave myself only three hours to come up with a logo and I’d only turn it into a t-shirt if 50 of you guys RT’d the image on Twitter.

For moar goals just add water & crash the net.

We’re so happy to welcome Dustin Penner to the Capitals.  At 6-foot-4 and 247 pounds, Penner is a big chunk of dude who is liable to crash the net. Plus, he’s a bit of character. Actually, he might be the most RMNB-y player the Caps have ever had.

swedes-on-bikes

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.
