You have to hand it to the fine folks at Madame Tussauds—they are geniuses with wax. That looks less like a wax sculpture of Alex Ovechkin, and more like the actual disembodied head of the Capitals superstar, made to look like a wax sculpture. Wait, not that I don’t trust Madame Tussauds, but has anyone seen or heard from Ovie in the last 48 hours? Anyone at all?
I’m kidding of course. Ovechkin is getting the wax sculpture treatment by the Washington D.C. location of the famed museum, and in doing so, becomes only the second NHL player to be honored with his own wax figure (Wayne Gretzky being the first). Now the only question is, do they go with athletic, in-shape, mid-season Ovie, or the portly, off-season, one too many trips to the Five Guys Ovie?
