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!
Other notable news from the Capital Emmys:
- CSN Washington’s Joe Beninati has won the Emmy for Best Local Play-By-Play man. This could not be more well-deserved.
- CSN Washington’s Michael Jenkins has won one Emmy for Best Sports Anchor and has been nominated for two others. He rules.
- The Caps Red Line’s segment Elliot Learns And Performs Let’s Go Caps Live (Part I, Part II) has won the Local Emmy for Best Sports Segment.
The rest of the winners will be announced on Saturday, June 14th at The Fillmore. If anyone needs a date for the show, I hear this guy is available.
