Last Thursday, the Washington Capitals held their annual season-ticket holder party at Six Flags America and it was a bunch of fun. There were ketchup bottle cookies, dominant whack-a-mole performances, an Oshie/Yoshie meeting, and spur of the moment tattoos. Now the team’s releasing GoPro footage of some Caps and their significant others riding a roller coaster.
It’s mandatory viewing — especially because of how scared TJ Oshie is before the Superman’s first big drop.
Triple-threat Julianne Hough bought a fancy gyrocopter for husband-to-be Brooks Laich last week. The gadget is a DGI Phantom 3 and it’s powerful. According to DJI’s website, the flying camera’s top speed is 35 MPH and can travel up to 20,000 feet above sea level though it can only stay in the air for 25 minutes.
Laich broke the thing in on Tuesday while taking the couple’s two dogs, Lexi and Harley, on a walk.
Wednesday night, the Washington Capitals lost to the Carolina Hurricanes in the shootout 4-3. The biggest moments of the game included a fancy Alex Ovechkin goal and a mind-blowing shootout tally by TJ Oshie.
That wasn’t the only notable thing Oshie did. Midway through the game, according to @Canes_Gameday, the former Blue delivered a questionable hit to Joakim Nordstrom. That hit set off a small fracas, where the Canes’ Brad Malone tried to go after Oshie. Brooks Laich intervened and dropped the gloves with Justin Faulk.
I love Laich’s leadership here, but that face should not be punched.
On Monday, Reddit user /u/k_nasty posted something I and a large chunk of hockey fans did not know. Via Wikipedia, Brooks Orpik is named after Miracle On Ice’s Herb Brooks.
Tuesday morning, Capitals heartthob Brooks Laich announced his engagement to star Julianne Hough. Because the super-famous Hough is a triple threat (actress/singer/dancer) and on one of network TV’s biggest shows (Dancing With The Stars), nearly every news outlet in the world covered the proposal, including TMZ, ABC World News, and NBC Nightly News.
That’s cool and all, but anyone can post an Instagram photo and relay the news that a couple is engaged. I need hard-hitting analysis. I need deep, incisive journalism. I need Access Hollywood’s comprehensive coverage of the proposal– an entire segment dedicated to explaining who the heck Brooks Laich is.
Billy Bush, take me on a sports journey.
This awful, terrible photoshop is by me and I’m not sorry.
Brooks Laich and Julianne Hough announced they were engaged Tuesday morning. One person who was excited about this news was Michael Latta.

What an incredible gesture for Michael to skip…
Brooks Laich is officially off the market. You missed your chance.
The Capitals forward and his movie-star girlfriend Julianne Hough just announced the news with joint posts on Instagram saying, “We are overwhelmed with joy and excitement to share with you our recent engagement! #fiance #love”
