This photo of Joe Beninati is how I will remember him when I get old and grey: smiling, immaculately dressed and rocking an Emmy in each hand. Tonight, Beninati was named the Capital area’s best play-by-play man/analyst, which he deserves so hard. He also received a second Emmy for best play-by-play composite, which I’m less sure what that actually means.
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.
