Ever since RMNB launched its new and improved website, long-time readers have had one burning question: What happened to the tooth?
The tooth, as eagle-eyed readers will recall, used to live in the top right corner of the RMNB home page, a subtle homage to the missing front tooth of Capitals captain and the Russian machine that never breaks, Alex Ovechkin.
But the redesign evicted the tooth, setting it adrift in the vast nothingness of the hockleyess summer.
The tooth has found new life as the GR8 Missing Tooth Trophy, the newest, most sought-after trophy in all of sport. It will be hoisted in glory for the first time by the two winners of the inaugural RMNB Floor Hockey Tournament, taking place this Saturday, Sept. 24, at the Rockville Sportsplex.
Standing more than 2 feet tall and weighing in at, eh, maybe 5 pounds, the GR8 Missing Tooth Trophy is truly magnificent specimen befitting the honor that will come with winning the inaugural RMNB Floor Hockey Tournament. And just like the Stanley Cup, you can’t keep it, but can try to drink things out of it.
Only 10 spots remain (preferably four women) in the co-ed tournament happening this Saturday for a chance to hoist the tooth. Reserve yours by selecting the $40 perk on the Russian Machine Never Brakes fundraiser (which is a community effort to help NASCAR driver and Caps fan Ryan Ellis get into the Drive Sober 200 Xfinity Series race at Dover International Speedway Oct. 1).
A few more news and notes about the the hockey tournament:
Russian Machine Never Breaks is not associated with the Washington Capitals; Monumental Sports, the NHL, or its properties. Not even a little bit.
