Video killed the radio star. Now, it’s coming for the blogs.
RMNB is proud to re-introduce you to Ben Scarbro, whom you’ve seen around these parts investigating Caps superfans, dancing to Taylor (Swift, not Chorney) and earning a spot in at least the top 200 RMNB commenters.
Ben pitched us the crazy and totally original idea of video recaps of big Caps games. We’d certainly never seen anything like that before, so we told him to go for it.
And what better game to start with than the dramatic, emotional, and long-awaited return to Verizon Center of former Caps man-hunk and now Toronto Maple Leafs man-hunk Brooks Laich? Ben touches on Laich (who wouldn’t?), Taylor Chorney’s first goal, terrible first periods, bad relationships, how fun it is say to “Nick Backstrom, All Star” and, well, a lot more.
For additional context on the Caps’ 3-2 win over the Leafs, which you might have fallen asleep during, check out Margaret’s non-video recap as well.
Finally, show Ben some love in the comments and on his twitter… which is also totally original and not stolen from anywhere.
