The Washington Auto Show is running from January 28 to February 6 — you may have seen the ubiquitous commercials with the fake doctor guy on local TV — and features not just autos (as the name would lead you to believe) but different celebrity appearances every day of the show.
If you are my daughter, the biggest day was probably Saturday — Dora the explorer AND Captain Planet AND Wizards mascot G-Wiz AND Clifford the big red dog, all on the same day! — but if (as seems likely) you are a Redskins fan who is more than two years old, yesterday was probably the big one: current Redskins Chris Cooley and Mike Sellers, former Redskins great Brian Mitchell, and Snooki from MTV’s mega-hit reality show Jersey Shore.
I’m actually pretty much Jersey Shore illiterate, but even I know that Snooki’s presence is a pretty big deal — and if I had any doubt, this gallery from the always-excellent Jay Westcott at TBD would make it abundantly clear. But there’s one thing you won’t see in Westcott’s gallery: the Redskins meeting Snooki. Thank goodness for Twitter — and, more specifically, thank goodness for Susie Huitz (@barbque711). Huitz is (based on her tweets) an enormous fan of Snooki AND of DC sports, and she captured this image for posterity:
That’s Sellers in the green, Cooley next to him, and Snooki seated. I don’t think Huitz is going to replace Westcott at TBD anytime soon, but it’s solid work for now. Also worthy noting as far as this goes is The Examiner’s “Yeas & Nays” column, specifically this snippet from the January 3 edition entitled “Redskins pumped to meet Snooki”:
The pint-sized star plans to sign autographs from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Jan. 31 at the Washington Auto Show alongside the Washington Redskins’ Chris Cooley and Mike Sellers. We hear Cooley and Sellers are pumped.
“They are, like, so charged about meeting Snooki,” a source close to the event told Yeas & Nays.
I guess I’m the only one who’s not a Snooki fan.
