Ovechkin Joins Eastern Motors

There are so many hundreds of ways of describing what has happened with the Caps in D.C. over the past 15 months, but I would argue that this, for sure, is the craziest signpost yet. Eastern Motors--yeah, THAT Eastern Motors--is going with the White Russian. This is the same Eastern Motors that does not currently feature any Wizards in its ads.

Seriously, the first audio clip of Ovie screaming "your job's your credit" might forever change the D.C. sports landscape. Also, Ovechkin is pretty good at throwing a football.

(The ever-wise Stet Sports Blog actually demanded Ovechkin be included in these ads five months ago. Well done, Stet.)

I don't know if I've ever been this excited in anticipation of a local commercial.

The Easterns Auto commericals are a curse to the areas players!!!!

Ovie why did you do it? :(

that's exactly my reaction. The Eastern Motors curse has struck. Ovie with a hurt foot, and the caps on a losing streak.

Don Cherry called. He said Jean Beliveau would never do an Eastern Motors commercial.

Don't let Don Cherry see this...

Actually, since it would likely give him a heart attack, can we get this over to the CBC ASAP???
