CSN Washington’s Jill “Are Your Shoes Comfortable? Sorenson is at it again. This time she authored a serious interview with Washington Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin about the upcoming Sochi Winter Olympics.

Jill asks Ovi about why the Olympic Games mean so darn much to him (warning: he admits to crying as a kid), what his role is as an ambassador (still not entirely clear), and if he’d check Nicklas Backstrom if the opportunity presented itself.

    Knowing our luck as Caps fans, Ovie goes to hit Nicky and both are hurt. Meanwhile, Brooks Laich pulls his groin reacting to watching the game on TV.

    LOL at the Brooks Laich part.

  • Darla Doxstater

    Nicky gon’ get crunched.

    Brooks Laich will probably pull his groin tomorrow being interviewed about the Olympics.

    Oh, man… Now all I can think about is an Ovi-caused injury to Nicky #shudder

    CSN is seriously underutilizing Julie Donaldson. She’s swell….

    as if nicky isn’t going to swedish counter hit him and lay him on his ass

    Not too worried. Nicky is one of the smoothest skaters out there and rarely lets himself get into danger. That kid could dodge a hip check in a phone booth.

    Also, that would require some serious backchecking…I’d be more concerned about him running over Carly in the corner on the forecheck. Keep your head up, Capt America.

    Does he have a lip in?

    just the trusty under bite

    The look on Sasha’s face after the shoe comment….no wonder the guy hates interviews in English.
