Magic Johnson meets Alex Ovechkin at Commanders game: ‘One of the greatest hockey goal scorers of all time’
Alex Ovechkin was one of over a dozen sports stars at the Washington Commanders’ electric home opener on Sunday. The Commanders sold out its game against the Arizona Cardinals — a thrilling 20-16 win.
The atmosphere at FedEx Field was more hopeful than it’s been in a long time as Dan Synder’s previous leadership soured the fanbase. Now, with Josh Harris’s ownership group in charge, there’s a different feeling. And part of that is because of the optimism that retired NBA superstar and part-owner, Magic Johnson, brings to the table.
Johnson has a four percent stake in the Commanders and has been a positive presence in DC over the last week, meeting with the team at their practice facility and presenting a check to a local Boys & Girls Club.
