He’s Named Alex, Named After Our Alex, and He’s on a Winning Streak

In what is the first known instance of its kind that’s been brought to our attention, an OFB reader passed a long a photo of his brand new son, named Alex, and named after our Alexander the Great. Saturday Ashburn, Virginia’s, young Alex took in his first Caps’ game, having recently been brought home.

We think he’s a good luck charm.
