The Caps Game Entertainment crew aired RMNB’s first CRL segment with Tom Wilson on the jumbotron during the first intermission of the Caps/Preds game. It’s a bit surreal seeing your big head up on the jumbotron. Chris Gordon, covering the game for us on location, tells me he “almost pooped [his] pants” when it happened. We are pros.

Thank you for all your excitement and congratulations. The response has been overwhelming. We wouldn’t get these opportunities without your support, so again: THANK YOU.

Video: CSN’s Russ Thaler on RMNB and That Painting

Yep. Milking this for all it’s worth.

We were stunned when we saw one of our t-shirts featured in ESPN The Magazine. So stunned, we said and I quote:

Since we’re on a bit of a hot streak, the next thing we’re going to work on is getting CSN Washington anchor Russ Thaler to scream “RUSSIAN MACHINE NEVER BREAKS!” before Game 1 of the Stanley Cup playoffs with red war paint on. I mean, if we can get into ESPN The Magazine, anything is possible.

Well, minus the face-paint and screaming, mission accomplished. Next goal: segway tour with the Bradleys.

Submit Questions to Andrew Gordon For Upcoming Q/A Post

This week, RMNB’s gonna be on hiatus. But while we’re away, please submit us questions for an upcoming Fan Q/A post with Andrew Gordon on RMNB’s Facebook Fan Page here. We’ll be taking your best questions and shooting them over to Gordo to answer. One question he’s already agreed to respond to is this:

tfirey – Gordo: I have a lot of questions about how pro athletes train (as it’s a world that I’ll never know — alas!) Can you tell us what you do in your workouts? Are any exercises hockey-specific, as opposed to standard endurance and strength-building? How does your routine change throughout the year?

I was always wondering that too. Welp, you guys have a great week. We’ll be back in no time!

Merry Christmas from Terry Dobbins, Mike Green and the 7 Raccoons That Perished to Make That Hat

Merry Christmas from Terry Dobbins, Mike Green and the 7 Raccoons That Perished to Make That Hat

Merry Christmas Eve from everyone here at Russian Machine Never Breaks! As our writers disperse across the state to spend time with their respective families, we wanted to thank you for welcoming us into the Capitals Diaspora with open arms and giving us a chance to entertain you for the last two weeks.

To give back, tomorrow on Christmas Day, we wanted to release to you some true stories and artwork that warmed our cold, Russian hearts and made us believe that the Christmas spirit of giving is still alive and well.

While we are away chugging alcoholic eggnog, dropping our mitts and fighting our in-laws, we wanted you to get on Twitter and let the Russian Machine know, what’s the best thing about Caps Fans? ie: @russianmachine The Best Thing About #Caps Fans is… [your answer]

We’ll post some of the best answers tomorrow! Take care and have a Merry Christmas!
