Here’s the post. How’d we do?
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.
First, it was Remy. Now, there’s a RMNB T-Shirt cameo on page 27 of the latest issue of ESPN The Magazine, which features Jake Locker on the cover. We are very humbled and extremely honored to have been included! For those of you who are interested in owning one of these delightful T’s, The Mag will be giving a few of them away on Monday. Just make sure to follow them on Twitter.

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 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!
