We all had a lot of fun when Gilbert Arenas showed up in wax form in the Madame Tussauds downtown. But the next time I thought of that sculpture was when I called the museum to ask whether they were pulling wax Gilbert out of the rotation after he got caught up in the court system.
Anyhow, another D.C. superstar athlete is now headed to wax immortality. Hope this one winds up better. CNBC’s Darren Rovell, who tweeted this news, says Ovechkin follows Wayne Gretzky as the only NHL players to be so sculpted by Madame Tussauds.
