On Thursday night, Gator and I went to the Washington Auto Show to meet John Carlson and Brooks Laich. It was more than a little disorganized, but we sweet-talked the right people and ended up getting to hang around their interview filming and then cut the whole line. Unintentionally awesome!
Be jealous. They were super sweet. And if iCarly looked more like a Ken doll in real life I think Gator would have hurdled the table. He is ADORABLE. Even all caps is not enough to accurately describe him. Brooks’ eyes are even bluer in real life – not possible, but true. Makes a girl wish she’d get a flat tire in the rain.
Karl Alzner came with John, because they can’t be apart. We didn’t get to see him but here’s Exhibit A: “Caps Roomates: Karlzner” video [link].
Then yesterday happened. Brooks left the game in a bad way with 8 minutes to go in the 2nd period of the 4-1 loss to Boston. The team hasn’t not commented on his apparent left knee injury because no one can handle anymore bad news around here. He didn’t practice this morning [link].
The Caps play Florida tomorrow night, and a win would make them #1 in the Southeast. And it would make us really happy. So we’re going to be optimistic and Rock the Red and hope there’s anyone left on the ice to Unleash the Fury.
BONUS: If you’re in Chicago (or want to road trip with us), the Chicago Auto Show has Seabrook, Kane, Toews and Stalberg. Holy Moly. [link]Tags: brooks laich, John Carlson, washington capitals
