That, my friends, is a screencapture of Redskins tight end Fred Davis performing the John Wall dance to welcome the Wizards first-round draft choice to town, alongside quarterback Donovan McNabb and host of other Washingtonians, famous and un-, in a video the Wizards put together.
It’s a little strange to think of the third year Davis and newly-acquired McNabb as the sorts of elder statesmen who should be welcoming the 19-year-old to town, but things move pretty fast in D.C. Heck, when Donovan McNabb was acquired on April 4, here’s where a few of his fellow dancers were:
- Alex Ovechkin hadn’t even started the NHL playoffs yet
- Stephen Strasburg was still a week away from his minor-league debut, let alone the first official Strasmas
- Ryan Zimmerman’s inescapable Geico commercials hadn’t started airing
- The DC version of Wax Michelle Obama hadn’t yet been unveiled
So, yeah, things just zip along in this town. By those standards, Fred Davis might as well be a proud Redskins alum from the 1970s.
And anyway, strange or not, this all actually happened. Check out the full video after the McNabb screencapture and the jump.
Hat tip to the DC Sports Bog for using the friendly NHL video embedder.
