RMNB reader Jen S. took Amtrak on her way back to Washington D.C. tonight. On a whim, she upgraded her ticket to business class.
The extra $25 gave her a little more leg room, a special bathroom to use, and an encounter with NHL MVP Alex Ovechkin.
Ovi, wearing a white tanktop and grey sweatpants because obviously, was also returning to DC after spending the day up in New York City for the NHL’s media day.
A freaked-out Jen worked up her courage and asked Ovi if she could take a picture with him. The Russian machine obliged.
Less than an hour later, Ovi tweeted this to his 600,000 followers:
Back at home, Jen emailed this photo to us. Day = made.
Note: Always travel in business class. There’s moar leg room and goals scorers up there.
