Alex Ovechkin shoots pucks off a roof
Word of Alex Ovechkin's latest commercial exploits for Capital One broke early on Wednesday, when ARLNow.com saw "dozens of gaffers, grips, extras and producers...at the corner of Columbia Pike and Monroe Street."
The site also reported that the crew would be heading into D.C. for a shoot involving Alex Ovechkin shooting pucks off a bank's roof.
The Caps were unable to provide any information on this matter. A source close to area roofs suggested that Verizon Center was at one time an option for this roof-puck-shooting phenomenon. But lo and behold, a kind soul on Twitter sent along these images of Ovechkin and crew atop a government building above the Judiciary Square Metro station. Yes, the top one is a picture of a picture taken through binocular lens.
Anyhow, I believe this is a little-known variant on the "couldn't hit the ocean from the beach" adage about slumping players. Though Ovechkin is sort of out of his slump, by all indications. So maybe they just wanted to hit pedestrians with hockey pucks.
