Ovechkin, who signed a 13-year, $124 million contract in 2008, was spotted buying Powerball tickets with his dad at a 7-Eleven in McLean on Saturday. He didn’t win Saturday’s $800 million prize, but with the jackpot at a record $1.4 billion ahead of Wednesday’s drawing, perhaps he tried his luck again.
On Tuesday, Ovechkin was asked about the photo of him buying a Powerball ticket.
I’ve never bought a Powerball ticket (I prefer to lose two dollars at a time playing daily fantasy sports), but maybe I should reconsider. Here are a few Ovechkin-inspired numbers to play:
The jersey numbers of the five goalies against whom Ovechkin has scored the most goals, with Ovechkin as the Powerball.
The top five single-season goal totals of Ovechkin’s career, with Ovechkin as the Powerball.
The top six single-season power play goal totals of Ovechkin’s career.
I bet no one picked this…
