Alex Ovechkin's Having a (nother) Party

(By Fank Gunn - AP/The Canadian Press)

Just so you know, the six or so weeks from mid May till late June have evidently been dubbed the "D.C. Athletic World Social Circuit Extravaganza Tour." Someone should start an official D.C. sports party blog or something.

In that vague time period, the final social calendar will include at least two Fred Smoot parties on separate weekends (more on that to come soon), a Santana Moss party weekend, a Big Tigger party weekend (featuring great clumps of Redskins and Wizards and Terrell Owens), an Alex Ovechkin clothing line release party (in Toronto), and now, evidently, an Alex Ovechkin "welcome home" extravaganza in D.C. the same week.

The invitation for this last event, which is scheduled for the day after the MVP will be awarded, vaguely calls the party "an exclusive celebration of Alex Ovechkin's award-winning season." The locale is Teatro Goldoni on K Street, the co-sponsor is Capitol File Magazine, and the date is Friday the 13th, which is apparently good luck with an organization that hands out 13-year contracts like they were candy. Extremely rare, once-in-a-lifetime, nine-figure-price-tag pieces of candy. Like, really creamy Reese's Pieces.

The list of invited guests is said to include include Pat Sajak, Tim Russert, Lindsay Czarniak, Karl Rove, and Joe Theismann, the D.C. area's last major-national-big-league team MVP, here excluding MLS, although who knows, maybe Etcheverry and Gomito and Emilio will show. Here's to Lindsay announcing with horror that Karl Rove has leaked word to Russert of Theismann's true occupation (um, being compared to dead horses, evidently?), while Sajak quizzes Ovechkin on the spelling of Czarniak. Your invitation is likely in the mail.
