Caps Fans Are Bored
With Capitals beat writer Tarik El-Bashir taking a few days off, the Insider faithful are left looking for ways to pass the time.
First order of business: What should Alex Ovechkin do until the next NHL season starts?
tokyo fan: Here's a thought: for the NHL to really get some publicity, Ovie should go on the next "Dancing With the Stars" - wouldn't that be hilarious? He'd proabably win it, too. Just a thought... (hey, it's been a long off-season already...)
From an interview with Dan Patrick in February 2007:
DP: Can you dance?
AO: Oh, I'm the best dancer in the league.
DP: Would you go on Dancing With the Stars?
AO: No. I'm a little bit shy.
He should really be on American Idol instead. You can't waste a set of vocal pipes like that.
Or how about Saturday Night Live? He's got the acting chops (Sidney Crosby, not so much).
Kim: How about the next double sport athlete? What other sport could Ovie play? I can see the NHL/whatever commercials now. Ovie knows hockey. Ovie also knows...tokyo fan: How about IndyCar? Ovie seems to like speed!
Jordan: Ovie would cause far too many accidents in car racing.. Trying to put guys in the wall and stuff.
Scott in Shaw: I love Ovie as much as anyone, but I doubt he's going to be the next multi-sport superstar (watch him take batting practice and throw with the Nats and you'll see what I'm saying).
. . .it's going to be a long offseason.
