Here’s how I spent my summer vacation: I made a weird album of weird music with old friends. We call the group Late-Night Delivery, and we call the album New Gilded Age, and I hope – maybe as a birthday present to me – you’ll give it a try.
New Gilded Age is streaming now on a Spotify, Amazon, Google whatever. You can also get to it on TikTok, but I have no idea what that means.
The Capitals have ventured down to Raleigh, North Carolina to face the Hurricanes in the first away game of the series. This will be the first home playoff game in almost ten years for the Hurricanes, so I think we can all anticipate quite a rowdy crowd. The Capitals will need to ignore the noise, or let it fuel them, while they try to bring the series to a 3-0 lead.
Puck drop is at 7 PM, and you can stream the game using the My Teams app. Recap will be provided by Peter Hassett.
It’s time again for us to get reacquainted. This is one of our open threads where we all get to know each other again. We find that the community works better when we know each other just a little bit. So why don’t you hop on down to the comments and say hello?
Hi friends. This is RMNB. Since 2009 we’ve been trying to make hockey as fun to read about as it is to watch. We’ve been through a lot of changes recently, so I wanted to take this opportunity to keep you abreast of the goings-on and use the word abreast in a sentence.
This is not a hockey story, but stick with us anyway. Ian and I started RMNB in late 2009. For years after that we operated the site without any revenue beyond some t-shirt sales. We were fine with that because, for us, RMNB was a labor of love.
But we’ve grown, and that model doesn’t make sense anymore. RMNB now has a wonderful team of contributors — a smart and diverse group that we’re proud to count among our friends. We pay the team, but not nearly what they deserve. We think we’ve figured out a way to do it that’s ethical for us and advantageous for you. We need your help, and in exchange you’ll get some cool rewards.
I vividly remember, one night when I was 14, I was so worried about my future that I couldn’t sleep. Would I ever be worthy enough for someone to marry me? Will I ever be lucky enough to be a father?
Eighteen years later, I can say from the bottom of my heart that all my dreams have come true. Today at 3:53 PM, my wife Ashley gave birth to a 7-pound, 4-ounce boy. His name is Ethan Wesley Oland.
We named him after Washington Capitals PA Announcer Wes Johnson.
