Green with his fiancée Courtney Parrie
On Tuesday night, extremely rich and beautiful sports people congregated at the National Building Museum on F. Street for the 10th annual SneakerBall. As described by the SneakerBall website, the event is “the only black tie and sneakers gala that celebrates the best of sports in the region.” SneakerBall awards athletes and sports owners for extraordinary charity work.
Washington Capitals defenseman Mike Green was given with the JB Impact Award, which honors the player who has used sports to most positively impact the area through community service. Green, who was making his first public appearance since getting engaged, does lots for the DC Community and his Canadian homies such as his “So Kids Can” charity, t-shirts, and creating awareness for Calgary Flooding victims.
“It is an honor to receive the JB Impact Award,” said Green in a very press-release-y press release from the Capitals. “I’ve been fortunate to be involved with several projects that have given back to the Washington, D.C., community, and I look forward to another season giving back to those in need through service.”
While you’re happy for Green, you’re just here for the photos of Caps players in suits. It’s okay, I get it.
If you ask me, Karl Alzner hits a homerun with a smart navy blue suit and pants combo. That said, Steve Oleksy also gets points for somehow managing to be in every photo. Also, fake sources tell us that Jason Chimera turned down Tyson Strachan’s invitation to be his date Tuesday.
