On the day that Semyon Varlamov’s bobblehead was given away to blood donors at Kettler Capitals Iceplex, Braden Holtby would not be outdone on the awesome meter. After Benoit Pouliot dumped the puck in after the referees’ whistled the Habs for being off-side, the sassy 21 year-old ‘keeper kicked the puck into the air, caught it with the blade of his stick before flipping it into his glove. Another great Holtbyism? You bet!
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.
I believe the children are our future, so when I was at Kettler for Saturday’s practice I asked some of them, “What’s wrong with the Caps?”
“They’ve been losing.” – Sam, 7 1/2 years old
It doesn’t take decades to get wisdom, it takes seven and a half years. They have been losing. We all remember the eight game losing streak this year and through 45 games last season they only had 12 losses. This season they have 14. That’s almost 17% more, which is unacceptable. Start winning or Sam and I are looking for a new team.
