On Thursday night there was an important development regarding the friendship of roommates Andre Burakovsky, Tom Wilson, and Michael Latta. It seems Burakovsky considers Lats and Willy Baby his BroBeans. This is significant and breaking news.
It all started when Latta sent out a tweet announcing he had arrived back in DC after a day’s worth of driving.

Burakovsky responded thusly.

Now at this point, I’m sure you’re wondering, “Ian, what the hell is a BroBean?” I’m glad you asked, because as of tonight I know all about this topic.
BroBean is a term made popular by Thad Castle (Alan Ritchson) on the TV show Blue Mountain State. Urban Dictionary explains:
Brobeans – A bond stronger than friendship, stronger than true love. Usually the bond is formed between a small group of males. They refer to each other not by name but by simply calling each other “brobeans”. When in need one would assemble a “brobean talk” which is a short meeting between everyone considered to be a brobean. Brobeans never tell secrets to outsiders, however they tell each other everything they know. No secrets are kept from brobeans. Alas, brobeans is not just a name for best friends. It is a way of life, and the brobean way of life will never be matched by any culture or any society past, present, or future.
Thad uses the term here at the 21:58 mark. (Warning: NSFW. This tribute video contains naughty language, partial nudity, and a lot of butt jokes.)
So there you have it. Not only do these three Caps roommates wrestle each other, watch The Bachelor together, and play ping pong, they also have a bond stronger than true love.
I just thought you should know.
