Here’s something that’ll make you feel REALLY unathletic … Nationals star Ryan Zimmerman suited up in goal for the Capitals on Wednesday — and saved an Alex Ovechkin slap shot!!!
Unclear why the Washington infielder decided to trade in the mitt for a set of goalie pads this week … but he sure as hell impressed everyone watching at Caps practice.
Zimmerman got between the pipes and stopped one-timers from Ovi … and later got in some shootout drills, where he didn’t suck either!
But, the most impressive part? That came when Alex decided to fire a missile at Zimmerman from the point — and he saved it with a flashy piece of leather!!!!
Zimm was pretty humble after the workout … hilariously calling it all, “terrifying.”
“What a great experience,” he said. “Terrifying, but fun. Glad I did it, but I’ll never do it again.”
Zimm says that now … but the 35-year-old’s baseball career IS winding down — so never say never, Ryan!!!
