Brooks Laich,what can I say? Great dude.


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.

"A fat and hungry DH, mulls eating Brooks for lunch."

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!

It will happen. Cleveland will win a Stanley Cup before any other major sport's trophy. While we admit we are not hockey bloggers that take themselves seriously, we do expect that ESPN hockey coverage needs challenged. It's time people take hockey seriously, and it ain't happening here. Great hockey, stats, scores, highlights. Um no. LOL
