The rumors are true: RMNB is throwing a tailgate party for the Stadium Series game between the Caps and Toronto Maple Leafs this Saturday at the Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis, Md. We’ll announce more details later this week, but I had to share this quick story of how the flags we’re flying over the festivities reconnected me with a fondly remembered past.
We had procrastinated on deciding whether to have flags made at all, so by the time we decided to do it last week, I needed to find a place that could turn them around quickly. I did what anyone would do and Googled “custom flags,” reviewing a few of the early results and settling on a site called BestFlag because it was easy to use, the prices seemed competitive, and they promised a standard production time of two days, which meant we’d get the flags in time for the game.
We got the artwork ready and I placed an order for one large flag with the infamous Russian machine avatar, and a smaller one with the iconic RMNB letters. A few hours later I got an email with the proofs for approval, and you’re not going to believe who sent it (unless you read the headline already).
