Brooks Laich, what can I say? Great dude.

By Rocque

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 (“edited by ESPNCleveland management”) and he proved it.  He was also extremely smart, 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.  BA
