Breaking News: Irbe’s Facebook Page Not Really Him

Posted March 29, 2011

It brings me no pleasure to announce that the Arturs Irbe Facebook page, the one in which the quirky goaltending coach contributes only by enthusiastically announcing the number of fans he has, is not really him. When asked about it, Irbe and the Capitals’ media relations denied that he runs the page.

This should be heartbreaking news for more than 900 folks who fell for this hoax, as we ‘liked’ a page that we actually thought that he ran himself. It’s also happens to be one of the top results on Google when searching for his name, which makes it that much more appealing.

This goes to show that you cannot believe anything on the Internet, ever, now that the Arturs Irbe Facebook page owner has been discovered to be an imposter.

Irbe did, however tell me that he might check out the page now that he knows it exists.

Read more about Irbe and see an awesome commercial he made.
