The WNBA champion Washington Mystics are having a week to remember.

First, several Mystics players were honored by the Washington Nationals at Game 4 of the NLCS Tuesday, where Elena Delle Donne threw out the first pitch.

Just a day later, they went from the diamond to the rink. Delle Donne dropped a ceremonial puck before the Washington Capitals‘ game against Toronto, but Aerial Powers stole the show.

Watch Powers ride the ice resurfacer (an Olympia, not a Zamboni) between periods, WNBA trophy in tow:

Powers is showing an attachment to the trophy rivaled only by the Capitals‘ champ himself, Alex Ovechkin, who never wanted to let go of the Stanley Cup after the Capitals won in 2018.

The Nationals and Capitals both won when the Mystics were in attendance. Maybe they should come to the World Series next.
