The Washington Capitals are no longer the masters of the universe. Consequently, you as an RMNB reader no longer deserve the delight that is two straight weeks of everyone’s favorite summer series, Not Up For Debate. Instead, and as punishment for the failure, here is one full week of Not Up For Debate. Presenting the most popular series ever on RMNB, in which we will finally understand the true nature of the 2018-19 Washington Capitals through the prism of stupid popular culture. It’s called Not Up For Debate because everyone agrees that these are the universal consensus picks.
In today’s installment, what song by the 20th best rock band of the 1990’s and the 41240978y12th best band of the 2000s and 2010s best representsthe 18-19 Caps?
Pretty, regal, and sad
This song only really does one thing, but it does it great.
Startlingly beautiful, sometimes.
Extremely Jersey vibes.
“Farewell, goodnight, last one out turn out the lights.”
Life’s a bummer when you get compartment syndrome and then lose your starting spot.
He’s a star.
He lost his left wing, he lost his right wing. He’s all by himself on the third line.
Because he has such a nice smile.
Today’s probably all we’ve got with Braden.
This sentiment’s not from me, obviously.
Maybe he can make it (i.e. the cup window) last forever.
There can be second acts for everyone and anyone.
He only shows up sometimes.
We’ve been afraid of changing we built our D around him.
This song has lots of depth and detail, but it rarely gets properly appreciated.
HIs life has been extraordinary.
Lately, the world has been a vampire towards TJ.
Jonas is baby now.
The impossible is possible.
This is also a song.
With the other European baby now gone, Jakub is the sole remaining sweet thing.
Wanna go for a ride?
Though the series is called Not Up For Debate, I’m leaving the comments open. So you can compliment me. For the very good picks. Appreciate the congrats.
