Ace Reporter Sarah Schorno Kogod reports back from NW Washington.
The sign is at the Beauvoir School. Each year the school auctions off the naming rights. The winner usually names it after their kid, but the 2010 winner decided to name it after Alex Ovechkin, reinforcing the notion that hockey comes before family.
However, the 2011 name has been selected. Sarah's working on getting the details on the new name, but let's hope it's not a fan of Sidney Crosby.
Ovechkin Circle will remain the current name until the new school year starts.
In short, it is true, the street was named after Alex Ovechkin... ahahahahahahahaha... That's what Ovi would say...
