To ease the end-of-a-holiday-weekend dread, returning to the daily grind, Russell and I bring you an all-new episode of Japers' Rink Radio on Labor Day Monday at 9pm. Fetch that last cold beer at the icy bottom of your backyard picnic cooler and join us.
We welcome to the show Dmitry Chesnokov, regular contributor to Yahoo!'s Puck Daddy, to discuss the prospects of Messrs. Alex Ovechkin and Alexander Semin this season for the Washington Capitals. Of course, we'll delve further into the merits of those recent comments by ex-Caps Matt Bradley and David Steckel about former teammate Semin and the compatibility of the team's level of "leadership, commitment, and discipline" with ultimate playoff success. And what of the Captain's "special announcement" to be made next Tuesday?
The call in number to chat with us live is (917) 388-4003 and we'll take your questions and comments @japersrinkradio.
And if you're in a band based in the DC or Baltimore metro area and would like your music used in future episodes of JRR, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
