Last year Alex Ovechkin filled out an NCAA tournament bracket. It was — what’s the word? Creative?
In an anxious explosion of arrows and circles, Ovi picked Kentucky and Alabama to meet in the title game. I’m sure there were reasons. Or not. Who knows? It’s Ovi.
Ovechkin’s 2012 bracket.
After the intense scrutiny on Ovi’s 2012 bracket, Monumental Network smartly cashed in with a segment of their own on Monday. (By the way, I would love to hear what the players thought of the earthquake.)
Gone was the crumpled up paper. Gone was the nonsensical arrows and circles. Instead Mike Vogel and Alex Ovechkin spoke for nearly 10 minutes and filled out a huge, pristine, laminated bracket.
Ovi’s personality still shined through. I direct to Ovi’s reaction when the wonderfully follicled Vogs told him that he’d win a billion dollars if he got every selection right. I’m really hoping that doesn’t happen now. I like seeing him play hockey and stuff.
The star of the video, I believe, was Ovi’s abbreviations for the schools (and the burritos thing). Apparently VIR is going to win it all after beating LOU in the title game. And, you guys, Ovi is confident FLO is coming out of the first round.
Anyways, check out the video and enjoy. Ovi, you so crazy.
Also, please read Dan Steinberg’s post on this same topic. It is way better than mine.
