On Tuesday night, extremely rich and beautiful sports people congregated at the National Building Museum on F. Street for the 10th annual SneakerBall. As described by the SneakerBall website, the event is “the only black tie and sneakers gala that celebrates the best of sports in the region.” SneakerBall awards athletes and sports owners for extraordinary charity work.
“It is an honor to receive the JB Impact Award,” said Green in a very press-release-y press release from the Capitals. “I’ve been fortunate to be involved with several projects that have given back to the Washington, D.C., community, and I look forward to another season giving back to those in need through service.”
While you’re happy for Green, you’re just here for the photos of Caps players in suits. It’s okay, I get it.
During the playoffs a year ago, Mike Green was asked about the golden age of the Washington Capitals where he, Alex Ovechkin, Nicklas Backstrom, and Alex Semin were referred to as Young Guns. “Young Guns?” Green said with a laugh then. “We’re not so young anymore.”
