Troy “Professor” Brouwer Could Win An Emmy


Troy Brouwer‘s insane, mind-boggling career season continues. After scoring a career-high 25 goals (which forced me to wear spandex) and receiving his first career World Championships invite to Team Canada, Brouwer has been nominated… for a local Emmy?

Did I read that right? [Re-scans the Capital Emmys Facebook page again.] Yes. Yes, I did.

Brouwer, along with 11 others (including DC101’s Elliot Segal), are a part of the Caps Red Line team up for the Best Local Sports Program Series Emmy. It’s the fourth straight year CRL has been nominated.

The 28-year-old British Columbia native served as a segment host for the series, donning a white laboratory coat and giving essential, nerdy insight as his alter ego, Professor Brouwer.

Here’s the episode and the segment Brouwer was in that earned the Emmy nomination. Please notice he did not shave. That’s swag. Er, I mean, Emmy-nominated swag!

    Which brings me to my next point: When in the h-e-double-hockey-sticks are you guys gonna start awarding Russian Machineys? Machinies? Macheenies?

  • If I ever am lucky enough to win an Emmy, it’ll be one of the craziest days of my life. Like I’m going to bring it out on dates with Ashley and ask for a table for three. I’d put a seatbelt around it in the car. If Chris ever wins an Emmy, I will just steal his and cross out his name in magic marker.

  • Brouwer Rangers

    Let’s not anyone do any Google searches for other hockey players who’ve also won Emmys.

  • Sarah

    Milbury gets it every year.

  • Rob W.

    At the bottom of the page it says you guys aren’t associated with the Caps. I think its about time that changes since you had your own segments on CRL. Although I dont know how that stuff works legally

  • Catherine__M

    Upvote only for the Emmy talk. Because someone somewhere should have an award category called hahahahabest)))))))))))), and I think this might be the only place where it’s remotely acceptable. 🙂

  • It’s still true. Technically our relationship for the CRL stuff is with Monumental Network.

    Our site shouldn’t be confused for an official Caps site representing the team. It totally isn’t.
