We learned something Very Important Tuesday night. Alex Ovechkin will sign your large, four-foot-tall oil paintings of himself, but for a price.
And that price, I’m guessing, is an equally as large, medium-rare steak.
Last July, we reported that Randy’s Prime Seafood & Steaks, a new restaurant in Tysons Corner, had installed a giant oil painting by artist John Gable of Ovechkin holding up the Stanley Cup.
Tuesday night, Ovechkin, on the heels of the official news release of his own cereal Ovi O’s, went to eat at the restaurant for the first time. Nastya posted video on her Instagram of the Great 8 signing the bottom left portion of the painting.
Overheard, you can hear someone who has an association with the restaurant say “That’s awesome. I… loved how much you celebrated after you won the Cup. I thought it was great.”
And now, we must all take a photo in front of this painting and do it for the gram.
