Which is what pretty much everyone guessed they would be.
I got the chance to sit down with Ryan (né Ranger Ryan) and Nathan (né Ranger Nathan) to talk about the transition and give us a sneak peek of their new getups. A lightly (and skillfully) edited version of our conversation is below.
Already pleased with what they’ve seen in the preseason, TJ Yoshie and his sidekick Mario have high hopes for their namesake TJ Oshie’s first season in a Caps sweater.
Though they expect to attend fewer games this season than in the past (on the account of both expecting their first babies, one in November and one in January), they do plan on attending the Caps’ home opener against the New Jersey Devils on Saturday night and as many of the early games as possible.
Anyone know where @TJOshie77's autograph table will be at the Caps STH party tomorrow night? Asking for some friends.

More from our wide-ranging conversation, including their thoughts on the Peter Hassett / Pat Holden blood feud over predictions for Oshie’s production this year and an entirely too long discussion of everyone’s favorite forecaster (Keith, A Coin, duh), is available a special extended collector’s edition director’s cut over on the tubes.
Feel free to ask TJ Yoshie your questions below. And don’t forget to subscribe to RMNB’s YouTube because this may be my only chance to convince Ian and Peter to let me do more weird stuff for you guys in the future.
