Who wouldn’t want to meet this guy? (Photo: Alex Brandon)
Washington Capitals captain and future hall of famer Alex Ovechkin will be among us mere mortals on Friday. He’ll be (I assume) signing autographs and taking photos from 4-6pm at the new Hybla Valley Verizon Wireless store in Alexandria, Virginia. I am told it’s the store’s grand opening.
For those of you — like me — who are from Maryland and have no idea what a Hybla Valley is, here’s the address:
Verizon Wireless Store – Hybla Valley
7703 Fordson Rd
Alexandria, VA 22306
Just plug that ish into your GPS and you should be all good.
Here’s some more redundant information from the DelRay Patch:
The grand opening celebration of the new Verizon Wireless Hybla Valley SMART Store will take place this weekend, March 7-9, with special guests, including Alex Ovechkin of the Washington Capitals who’ll be at the store on Friday, March 7 from 4-6 pm, 93.9 WKYS and other surprises and giveaways, including free snacks and beverages. The Verizon Wireless Hybla Valley Store is located off Route 1 in Alexandria at 7703 Fordson Road, and is open Monday-Saturday from 10am to 9pm, and on Sundays from 11am to 6pm.
If any of you are planning of going — first of all — I apologize for calling more attention to the event and potentially making it crazy tomorrow. My bad.
Secondly, if you do go, we want your photos and we want to know what it was like meeting Ovi. Email us here. We’ll do a post tomorrow night with your stories.
Finally, if someone gets one of our Deadguins shirt signed by Ovi — and has it signed right where the stick goes into the Penguin like this — I will totally give you $100 for it or it can be your future wedding gift for me. Deal? Deal. I just need photo proof.
