Brooks Laich joins Twitter

Washington Capitals forward Brooks Laich, one of the two people whose name inspired this site’s name, has joined Twitter.

In case you don’t know the story behind how my brother Pat and I named this blog, here it is from the first BrooksLaichyear post I made in January of last year:

…my hockey-crazy three-year-old son is under the impression that number 21 for the Caps and Buzz Lightyear from Toy Story share the same last name: Laichyear. It cracked me up the first time he mentioned the name “Brooks Laichyear” while telling me a story about a Caps game. And Pat and I filed it away as what we’d name our Caps blog if we ever started one.

Welcome to Twitter, Brooks Laich(year).

A new Washington Capitals blog

Starting this blog is something my brother Pat and I have been talking about for a little while.

I’ve been blogging about Caps hockey some on my personal blog and have wanted someplace to do that where the content is only Caps/hockey related. My brother has thoughts on the Caps all the time that would make for good blog material—I’m often telling him, “Start a blog” after he emails or calls me about something he saw during that night’s game.

So, we’ve started BrooksLaichyear.com as a place where we  can write about our favorite team and the sport of hockey in general.

If you are wondering about the name of this site, my hockey-crazy three-year-old son is under the impression that number 21 for the Caps and Buzz Lightyear from Toy Story share the same last name: Laichyear. It cracked me up the first time he mentioned the name “Brooks Laichyear” while telling me a story about a Caps game. And Pat and I filed it away as what we’d name our Caps blog if we ever started one.

So, today we’re starting one. We hope you’ll jump in and comment on our posts. You can follow us on Twitter at @brookslaichyear as well. Thanks for stopping by to check this out.

To the playoffs…and beyond!
