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.
The big day is here! Tonight at Verizon Center, the Washington Capitals take on the New York Islanders for the first game of the playoffs. There’s a ton going on in our world today, so we addressed a small portion of it and a whole lot of nonsense for an hour of RMNB podcast inanity.
We discuss Ian’s punk rock education, the Swedish national temperament, losing Grabo, Flipcup Forsberg, Barry Trotz’s retractable head, which ASOIAF house the Caps would be in, which songs the Beatles wrote on LSD, and taking scoarpik to the bank. We also talk our picks for the playoffs, how the Caps stack up against the Isles, what the future of this team is. It’s an hour of hockey power. Enjoy!
Ian and I got together on Saturday night instead of having social lives. We have assembled for you an hour and change of hockey chat. Maybe you can listen to it while you run errands today or while you’re stuck in traffic on Monday morning.
Ian and I convened on Sunday night to reflect on a successful weekend of Capitals hockey, answer your questions, and share some completely indefensible opinions about the team and sport we love so much.
Plus we answered your questions from the #HeyRMNB hashtag. Thanks to everyone who wrote to us! There are long discourses about emo, poms, pink eye, Frederick High School basketball, and user-experience engineering for the web.
Oh, and there’s a portion about Ovechkin and Hitler that might be unfollow-worthy. Lemme know.
Good morning, RMNBers! It’s hockey season at last!
After a million long months, approximately, the Capitals are back in action. They’ll host the Montreal Canadiens tonight. Ian and I got together on Wednesday night to talk about our enthusiasm for the looming season, what players will determine the team’s fate, and just a little bit of baseball. Not too much, but the whole Orioles/Nationals divide is so fascinating among Caps fans.
Ian and I got together on Monday night to talk about the draft, free agency, development camp. That was the plan at least. Instead, we talked about Transformers, Ninja Turtles, the sitcom Dinosaurs, #rmnbwedding, and our never-ending war for burrito supremacy.
Happy Friday (and D-Day), everybody! Ian and I got together last night to catch up on all things hockey. That was the intention at least. Instead we talked a lot about burritos, Ian’s upcoming wedding, and the best stuff we got back from the RMNB survey yesterday.
On the actual hockey front, we share our– reserved– opinions about Trotz and Maclellan, possible trade bait on the Caps roster, who we like in the Cup Finals, and hockey things like that. We also perused your questions on the #DearRMNB hashtag, so thanks for all your tweets. Check it out!
We’re back to take a look at the final couple weeks of the Washington Capitals’ regular season. Plus, Ian wants to tell you more than you ever wanted to know about wearing spandex, and I talk way too fast about Adam Oates and Alex Ovechkin.
Somewhere in there we also discuss the promo skills of the WWE’s Brock Lesnar, discuss different ways to fan out over hockey, and wrap up in time to watch the HIMYM finale (which was awesome, and I totally called it). It gets a little dour and rant-y at times, but I promise we finish on a happy note.
I’m just gonna put this up front: Yes, Ian is still calling them the Warshington Capitals.
Here’s our second ever RMNB Podcast. Ian and I got together on a balmy Sunday night to talk about the excitement surrounding Evgeny Kuznetsov, the trade deadline, and the Caps’ chances of making the playoffs. Plus, somewhere in there, we tease some important RMNB news.
