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).
