I love Steve Dangle and Steve Dangle loves RMNB. My favorite team is the Washington Capitals and Steve’s favorite team is the Toronto Maple Leafs. Oh god. The next two weeks are going to suck, aren’t they?
Monday afternoon, after Steve drank a liter of coffee and I chugged a Red Bull, we spoke somewhat coherently — for 90 minutes to be exact — about the Capitals and Leafs’ first-round playoff series, which begins Thursday at Verizon Center.
We also made a playoff bet that Steve’s really going to regret.
If the Capitals win the series, Steve — who contributes to Sportsnet and has 71k mostly Canadian Twitter followers — must change his Twitter avatar to our angry Ovi face for a week. And if he’s the fun human being like he says he is, Steve will take a picture in one of our RMNB shirts crying, preferably in front of Air Canada Centre (but I’d be fine with one of him in his room too). I just want real human tears.
If the Leafs win, which — haha, yeah right — I will change the RMNB Twitter avatar to a “Canadian-flavored” photo of Auston Matthews. I guess that means it’ll have mounties, timbits, and a moose in the background. I will also wear a Steve Dangle shirt — which you can and should buy here — and eat waffles everyday for a week.
See now that it’s a reality I’m realizing how nice @russianmachine and Caps fans have been to me and I genuinely like them and I HATE THIS.

Steve Dangle is the best. This first-round series against the Leafs is going to be so fun. Everybody make sure to follow @stevedangle for the best Leafs coverage. And with that said, for the next two weeks, we now officially hate you and your stupid team, Steve.

Leafs key metrics, end-of-season. Very solid overall result, though looks like shooting lanes weren’t good to them towards the end. pic.twitter.com/sIsXqV37Xw

Thanks for your time, Steve. I wish nothing but the worst for your team.
You can find Steve on Twitter and Facebook. He runs one of most popular hockey podcasts in the world. You can watch his brilliant LFRs on YouTube. You can buy his merch here. He contributes to Sportsnet and Leafs Nation.
Interscope recording artist, Young Rising Sons, made our awesome theme song. Give it a listen and jam out.
