The best part of RMNB, I think, is the community. Helping a family during a dark time, scrounging up a bunch of discontinued hockey sticks, or just general fun in the comments– participation is what makes RMNB fun for me.
Over the last few weeks, I’ve wondered how I can make this an even better place. The answer came to me from the SB Nation blog Cage Side Seats: More GIFs. Sometimes we’ll be discussing things in the comments, and words just aren’t enough. Sometimes you need to convey how you feel. The best way to do that is with GIFs.
So, for every notable person in the Caps organization, I will present an article full of my favorite GIFs and my recommendations on when to use them in the comments or in social media.
