Mr. Tire - What they're saying

Brooks Laich changed that tire on Wednesday - the story hit the wires on Thursday - here it is late Sunday early Monday and folks are STILL talking about it.  Brooks may never pay for a beer again, near as I can tell.

Anyway, let's take a spin 'round the hockeysphere:

Where it all began - SteinBog

Story goes national - Puck Daddy

A hero in defeat at all times - MSNBC video via FanFeedr

Brooks is no Tiger Woods. Or Ben Roethlisberger. Or Gilbert Arenas. Or... - USA Today

He's no Duncan Keith either, apparently.   That's probably for the best - Fanhouse

Though he might be just a little bit Sidney - John Steigerwald

We Love DC restates the obvious

A blog "dedicated to the most wonderful Curls in baseball history" can appreciate a hockey-playing good Samaritan (with bonus Tomas Fleischmann smirk) - Pedro's Soul Glo


The story made Weekly World News, so you know it *must* be true

'Hawks fan "Hockey and Red High Heels" took a break from wishing Jonathan Toews a very Happy Birthday to take note of a certain Saskatchewan knight in shining armor

A flat-out good guy [ed. - I see what you did there] - Denver Post

Big Fat Panda knows from simple - Bamboo and Brooksie's madd automotive repair skilzz

Not sure why the post is tagged "therapy dog training", but hey, if it works, it works - Training for Dogs 101

@WashCapsExam wants you to try the veal

You've got to be carefully taught - Vancouver Sun

Two tire-changing thumbs up - Victoria Times-Colonist

An extended thumb from Michael Farber on TSN's "The Reporters." I'm fairly sure that's a good thing

"A solid, responsible player." Even before he changed the tire - Edmonton Journal

DCist takes note, as does Washington City Paper

The Philadelphia Daily News is impressed, but [spoiler alert] Daniel Carcillo makes an appearance

Q: What do the Spurs, the Arizona immigration law, and Brooks Laich have in common?

A: They all get a nod from the New York Times

Put the pitchforks down, Caps Nation.  Brooks is here to redeem you - Toronto Star
