I am so proud of all of us for making it here today. It’s the first game of the regular season and the Capitals are in St. Louis to battle the recent Stanley Cup Champions. I think it’s incredibly flattering that the Blues wanted to play us for their first game back (I know that’s not how it works, but I’m going with it).
The puck will be dropping around 8 PM. You can catch all the action on NBCSN and Peter Hassett will meet you back here after the game for a recap. It’s a thrill to be back. Let’s go Caps.

Another hockey season, another tweet I need someone to help me understand. Does this mean hockey players get weird face tattoos by the end of the season? I just…don’t understand this comparison and maybe I’m just too old?

Here’s a casual plug for the RMNB store. We have a whole bunch of great stuff for you to stock up on for the new season. I recommend a new tee shirt (we just dropped one) and a mug for all the good fall drinks that are gonna be poppin’ up soon. Personally? Cinnamon whiskey with hot apple cider. Is it still 90 degrees outside in the DC area? Absolutely. But, it’s October, so I’m just gonna fake it until it gets cold.
