DeAngelo Hall compares Ovechkin to Landry
After Sunday's Redskins game game, Alex Ovechkin -- naturally wearing a six-year old t-shirt and odd-fitting ball cap -- wound up in the players' lot, where he posed for this photo with DeAngelo Hall and Hall's son.
"Shout out to the best Hockey Player in the Best Sports Town! Great8-HTTR" wrote Hall, when he included the photo on his Twitter feed.
Wednesday, after Matt Terl brought up the photo, I asked Hall to describe Ovechkin's game.
"Probably [like] LaRon Landry," Hall said. "100 miles an hour. A lot more offense, though."
Hall also talked a bit about his relationship with Ovechkin.
"He just came up to me after the game, said what's up, wanted to see how everything was going," Hall said. "I've met him a couple times before....I'm a huge fan of his, though, huge fan of his. Definitely wanted my son to meet him, 'cause he don't really know a lot about hockey, but hey, this is the LeBron James of hockey. I had to try to break it down to him like that. So he kind of understood that. I'm gonna have to take him to a couple hockey games this year. You know, he's a Skins fan. As D.C. guys, we all got to stick together. We all go support John Wall, he's been to a couple [football] games too, so we'll all stick together."
Indeed, just within the past few days, Brandon Banks has gone to a Wizards game, and Andre Carter to a Caps game, and several Caps were at Sunday's Redskins game. Terl asked Hall if this was a cool little fraternity to be part of.
"Yeah, if you're winning," Hall said. "So we've all got to win."
