“Just so you know, there’s a player for the Caps [Washington D.C.’s pro hockey team] named Jay Beagle.” This was in an e-mail I received yesterday from a BEAGLE MAN follower from our nation’s capital.
No, actually I did not know that. I don’t think I’ve ever heard of anyone famous with the last name “Beagle” — though I found the thought intriguing. So I Googled “People with the last name Beagle,” and was sent to People AZ.org’s FirstName LastName search. There were 11 pages of Beagles — from Aaron Beagle to Zora Beagle. (Some of my favorites: Yukiko Beagle, Mammie Beagle, and Despina Beagle.)
Not being a hockey fan at all (I’ve seen more Westminster Dog Shows in the last 10 years than I’ve seen hockey games), I wanted to learn a little about this Jay Beagle, and see how he stacks up against my beagle. Here’s what I discovered:
Jay Beagle: 26 years old (turns 27 in October)
Ricky the Beagle: 8 years old (turns 9 in May)
Jay Beagle: Born in Calgary, Alberta (Canada)
Ricky the Beagle: Born in Templeton, MA
Jay Beagle: 6’3″
