Reader @Sydneyhasnever shared this list of Alex Ovechkin’s favorite things, taken from one of those magazines you get at Verizon Center. Apparently your boy Alex is a Candy Crush fan.
Let’s break it down.
Favorite movie: Gladiator
Favorite superhero: Batman
Can’t go wrong with Bats. But does he mean gun-toting, anti-corruption Batman; Batman the arch detective; Batman the dark knight; Batman the hammy TV show guy who goes “pow!”; Frank Miller’s cranky old “this is a good death” Batman; Paul Dini/Bruce Timm’s ideal Batman; Schumacher nipple-suit Batman; broken-back Azrael/Batman; “My parents are dead!” Batman; High sci-fi Batman lost in time; Christian Bale’s awful, heavy-metal-growl-voice Batman; or Batman, the father figure who was never truly alone? More investigation required.
Favorite vacation destination: Turkey
Naturally, but stuffing-in or stuffing-out? Wait, what?
Favorite food: Steak
Uhh, that completely contradicts your last answer. MAKE UP YOUR MIND, ALEX.
Favorite sport other than hockey: Soccer
Cool. Cool. But there are only 89 days, 2 hours, 28 minutes, 35 seconds until the Daytona 500.
Favorite athlete: Michael Jordan
Well, okay, but he’s more of an actor really. Great on Friday Night Lights though. Cannon of an arm.
Favorite zoo animal: Monkey
How can a DC resident not say panda? We’d even take red panda.
Favorite musician: Eminem
It’s not Pauly D, so let’s call this progress.
Favorite hockey memory: World Championship
Yeah, we’re working on upgrading this one.
Favorite phone app: Candy Crush
That’s the thing we blocked on Facebook, right?
