Last week, Ted Leonsis spread his wings by launching Monumental Network, a site to aggregate all the Caps, Wizards, Mystics, and Verizon Center coverage his company produces. They’ve got original reporting and a network of blogs to cover the living heck out of each team.
Earlier this week, Casey Phillips, Monumental’s digital correspondent crowded in on RMNB’s beat with a story that we should have had. After Cosmopolitan Magazine named Mike Green the sexiest player in the NHL, the Monumental crew asked the team who they thought was truly the most handsome guy around.
The answers will amaze you. Or maybe they won’t. I mean, you know they’re gonna say Brooks, right?
“I’m pretty good looking. My line-mate Joel Ward’s a good looking guy. Mike Ribeiro’s a good looking guy. …I don’t think any of our team is good looking.”
“I think Joey Crabb should take his place. Um, Mike Green’s a good looking guy, don’t get me wrong, but I think Crabber could give him a run for his money.”
“I think in the top 30 they should have Braden Holtby. He’s a real sharp young lad. He dresses the part. You know he’s a real good looking guy.”
“I would just like to see who’s writing that stuff.”
“I think Greenie fits the part well. Dresses really well, has a nice style too. He’s got some good looking tattoos and whatnot. He definitely deserves that [honor].”
“[Mike Green’s] definitely a good looking guy yeah.”
“Prolly the pretty boy Brooks Laich. All the girls seem to like him.”
Is anyone else surprised it took that long before someone named Brooks?
