There was some debate in the RMNB comments today on if the Capitals’ Reverse Retro jersey is Actually Good. A slight majority of readers had a negative view of the design despite the sweater being highly ranked on multiple analysts’ rankings. “Mediocre,” one commenter wrote. “These are hot garbage,” said somebody else. “Cannot say I’m a huge fan,” added another.
Monday night, however, the discussion changed, and perhaps ended, when Tom Wilson posted a photoshop of himself in the jersey on his social media. Tom didn’t post many words – two emoji and a marketing hashtag. He let his strutting do all the talking.
The comments on the photo were swift and full of fire emoji. Jonas Siegenthaler was stunned: “😮🔥🔥🔥.” Wilson’s girlfriend Taylor Pischke was all like dats my mans. And Kayleigh from DC101’s Elliot In The Morning spoke for a large majority of people, myself included.
You guys, this is a Good Jersey. Stop being grouchy. Different is good. Different is fun. Enjoy it.
