I’ve met many celebrities over my career. Honestly, only a handful were memorable. Like when I beat Daniel Negreanu in a Vegas strip club at Rock, Paper, Scissors for a $100 bet.
Today, I met the Washington Capitals superstar forward, Brooks Laich at a business meeting. The first thing I noticed was that he made very certain to notice and remember EVERYONE’s name that he interacted with. When we did our work, he was extremely insightful. A natural communicator and a man (boy to me LOL) who has a command of the room. All of this while maintaining a completely, grounded sense of his celebrity. Which if you live in DC is A lister. What can I say, hockey players are cool as fuck and he proved it. He was also smart as hell, polite and extremely genuine.
Just think of LeBron James and take a 180 degree turn. Thanks BL-21, good times bro. Plus he’s a GnR fan. BAM!
