Future Caps Fan?
We attended the Wizards Draft Party a few weeks ago.
Lucy enjoyed climbing the stairs,
drinking from the water fountain,
and creating a poster for the Wizards’ first draft pick, Jan Vesely — the “Dunking Ninja” from the Czech Republic — based one of her favorite children’s books “Yo, Yes!”
But her favorite athlete of the night wasn’t a present or future member of the Wiz at all.
Maybe the allure was his missing front tooth, but it soon became clear.
She had a big crush on this Alex Ovechkin yard statue.
Hopefully it was just his height, because we are definitely not a hockey family (though Tio Tony was a Florida Panthers fan for a while). Maybe she’ll grow out of it…
