Not to jinx Alex Ovechkin or anything, but Friday, in the event that Ovie wins the Hart Trophy as league MVP, Ovechkin will be awarded a key to the city by D.C. Mayor Adrian Fenty.
While that seems to suggest that Ovie is the forgone winner, the Caps PR dept. was smart enough to use "in the event" in the press release.
So if you don't have much going on, possibly on Friday at maybe 4 pm, there may or may not be a key to the city awarded to Ovechkin kinda in front of the John A. Wilson Building probably. Don't get your hopes up, but be there!
They did book the Ballou Marching Band for the event. If that doesn't say Hart Trophy winner, you would have to print it on a t-shirt for me to believe it.
