Washington Capitals forward Troy Brouwer is a man’s man. He’s gruff and beard-y. He’s a little like the Ron Swanson character in real life (except super nice). That’s why, when the Brouwer Pouwer leader was introduced as a “hero” at Friday’s Washington Wizards game, you could tell it made him a little uncomfortable.
Or maybe that’s just because they decided to trot him out with the team’s furry blue mascot G-Wiz and the mascot started talking to him while under the suit. I’m still not sure which.
