NBC Washington’s three-foot tall Alex Ovechkin bobblehead has been stolen. It was taken during the tailgate before the Stadium Series game on Saturday.
There are only 55 of these. Ovechkin himself owns one. These were given out to corporate sponsors several years ago.
This bobblehead was frequently shown in the background during the brilliant show Caps Overtime on NBC Washington, which features a rotating group including Grant Paulsen, Courtney Laughlin, Jason Rogers, Neil Greenberg, Michael Jenkins, Brent Johnson, and Al Koken.
We seriously believe that this can be recovered.
Here’s a picture of Koken guarding the bobblehead before it was stolen:
