Right after the final goal horn went off on Thursday night, I chatted with Andy and Steve, two fervent Caps fans who also happen to be members of the band Young Rising Songs. We talked about the win, hockey, and rock and roll. It was fun chat and now you get to hear it.
You guys ready for the playoffs to start? Same here. This week I got two folks on the line that you probably know of but might not have heard from.
First up is Sam “The Horn Guy” Wolk, the superfan behind the toots and veteran of many years at Verizon Center. Also in the lineup is Chris Cerullo, aka Chris From the Comments, one of RMNB’s newest contributors.
Happy Wednesday, RMNBers. Last night I spoke with Jen LC, @RegressedPDO herself, about inclusion in hockey and her new project, Hockey 101.
I also took Ian’s temperature on the Caps’ recent problem with one-goal games and slow starts, but that was all a feint so I could play a trivia game I designed just for him. The Ian Oland Cultural Literacy Quiz is an exploration of surprising pop-culture blind spots, but it’s also just an excuse to make fun of Ian.
Plus, deep in the podcast, there’s some big news about an upcoming RMNB event you’ll want to hear about.
The Capitals roster is pretty much set for the postseason. After a wild Sunday, the Caps had a quiet deadline day on Monday, but there was still plenty us to unpack in a podcast featuring RMNB’s Pat Holden and Adam Stringham of Japers Rink fame.
Hope you’re stocked up on toilet paper and bread because the DMV is about to get slammed by wintry weather. On the eve of the big storm, Ian and I got together to chat about the unspeakably dominant Caps’ season, the narrative driving their success, and how cold it is in my dang house.
Plus, Steve Dangle of Sportsnet joined us to talk about Shane McMahon and Oscar the Grouch. And hockey.

Merry Christmas, RMNB Maniacs, which is apparently what Ian is calling you now. The hockey team is on break, but the blog team never sleeps. We all got together on Tuesday night to share tidings of joy and talk puck. We also answer your questions, including the Tom Wilson/bust question, doing the wave at Verizon Center, TJ Oshie’s scoring pace, Brooks Laich’s hidden value, and which moment this season was the most bailamos-y.

Ian and Pat joined me on Tuesday night to discuss the 2015-16 Washington Capitals, who, with twenty games in the books, look like a very special team indeed. Special guest Dimitri Filipovic of The Hockey PDOcast joined us to spit hot fire about Tom Wilson, Evgeny Kuznetsov, and more.
Plus, we reveal things about Chandler Stephenson you may not know and discuss our favorite Thanksgiving side dishes.
It is time. RMNB is back and so are the Washington Capitals. Ramping up for the 2015-16 season, we’ve got a special hourlong podcast for you. With us this time is special guest Alan May, CSN analyst and human flamethrower, here to share his thoughts on the Caps offseason, the evolution of fighting in the NHL, and good local beer.
It’s a good podcast, and it’s gonna be a good season. Let’s do it!
Good morning, Caps fans. Ian and I got together last night to discuss the Caps’ seven-game victory over the New York Islanders, the upcoming series against the New York Rangers, Ovi’s bid for the Hart, and a heck of a lot more.
