We don’t have any hockey right now, so here are some ideas from us at RMNB on how you could spend your time.
In today’s episode, the finale: the most extreme drinking game ever invented.
Dear Terry and Kim,
Hi. How are you? I am fine. Congratulations on all your business success during the pandemic. I write to bring to your attention a matter regarding your hockey team that has escaped your attention.
Kerry, Tim: your logo is a sword. It should not be this hard to make it look cool.
It’s now the holiday season. Like, I guess? I mean, it’s the holiday season, but it also feels like we’re just in March, Chapter IX. Anyway, if you are looking for gift ideas for the hockey person in your life or for the book person in your life or for the unicornishly rare hockey-book hybrid person in your life, here are some good ideas.

The Tampa Bay Lightning may have endangered the lives of Floridians on Wednesday.
After winning the franchise’s second Stanley Cup in the Edmonton bubble, the Lightning held a championship boat parade and rally back home during a coronavirus pandemic that has killed over 200,000 people in the United States (a fifth of all deaths worldwide). While the team took precautions and encouraged social distancing ahead of time, those practices did not sustain. Lightning players and fans got sloppy as Bolts faithful tried to get close to the most famous trophy in sports.
The players generated several cringe-worthy moments that were heavily criticized on social media.
Elliotte Friedman broke the news today. The Toronto Maple Leafs have hired Manny Malhotra as their assistant coach, thereby denying ex-Caps bench boss Bruce Boudreau of getting job with his old favorite team.
Losing his chance at the Leafs job plus the Caps position going to Peter Laviolette. That’s a bummer… but also an opportunity!
The Capitals should hire Bruce Boudreau to be their new assistant coach.
Aside from the unbearable pain of the Capitals playing terribly, the first round was every bit as exciting as I hoped it would be. Now the stakes get higher, even if we are no longer buried in games.
