Some Leftover Photos From The World Championships

Alex Ovechkin During Practice

Thanks to our friend Dmitry, we have some leftover photos from the World Championships of Alex Ovechkin, Alex Semin and Semyon Varlamov via the tricky Russian Internets. Most of these pictures are from a happier time: either practice or at an instance when wearing ripped jeans was absolutely necessary. Take a look and let us know what you think in the comments below.

    Oh, RMNB, you guys always know how to cheer us up. Your Russian fans are the best. When I saw #rippedjeans, I knew my day would be made.

    The gratuitous hairy thigh flashes through those homeless-guy jeans, Semin’s Bon Jovi-er than usual hair, and the promise of Ovi’s impending Dad-gut means everything is right with the (Russian Caps) world. Bring it on, 2010/2011.

    Lol. Varly’s smile. It’s cute and somewhat scary. It’s like, “Imma keeell youuu! Hehe.”

    Varlamov and Ovechkin’s smiles are very contagious. I’m in a better mood now. Especially after reading McAwful’s comment. (:

    Sasha minor’s hair.. it needs to be fixed.
    The picture of Ovie staring at the kid made me laugh
    And varly in general is just perfect.

    I need to add something else:
    What are the odds that in the pic of Varlamov and the camera, the two people in the back have their eyes closed? They blinked at the same time?

    @Jessica – They’re averting their eyes from the urine sample.

    Also, I just wanted to share this with you all, since I love this post so much.

    It’s all I can think of when I see those two Russian Machines in street clothes.

    “Two swinging guys who enjoy many things. We are… two wild and crazy guys!”

    Thank you RMNB!!! Sasha Minor looks rode hard and put up wet…Ovi just looks like he had a good night…Varly is a cutie!!

  • Mary K.

    I agree… love seeing the smiles. Varly is a cutie.

    I’m just waiting to see pics of Ovi with the additional missing teeth. I hope, hope, hope he decided to get those fixed (if he indeed did lose 3 more teeth). The one missing is cute, but more than that will just add to the whole homeless guy thing.

    Semin never fails to look like to me like a misplaced 50 year old man. Or a Mick Jagger wannabe. Can’t he be non-creepy just once?

  • BobbyG

    Thank you thank you thank you RMNB! Just when I needed a pick me up, something to help me get over my dreary day, you have come through AGAIN! Pics of Ovie, especially the ones where he’s smiling, never fail to bring a smile to my own face. I hope he’s having fun and relaxing, and we get to see some recent ones after the WC. I’m guessing he’ll show up in Las Vegas for the NHL awards, at least I’m keeping my fingers crossed, we’ll get that chance.

    @mcawful: Ovie’s impending Dad-gut??? Blaspemy! Heresy! Now I have to work really really hard to remove that image from my brain LOL!

    @lovisa: With all due respect, Ovie is #1 in cuteness, now and forever, no matter what mcawful says LOL.

    Its good to see the boys relaxed and having a good time. I like how Ovie and Varly are wearing their lids from the Caps. . .its nice to know they “carry us” with them even when they are home!

    September can’t get here fast enough!
