A very low-res photo of Angry Maria.
When we last shared a motor vehicle with Alex Ovechkin, he was putting his mobile device in Evgeny Kuznetsov‘s face while the prospect drove them to Verizon Center. While we noted that Ovechkin’s video was funny, it was also, ya know, pretty dangerous.
On Sunday, as Ovechkin’s fiancee Maria Kirilenko drove Ovechkin and Kuznetsov back to their Virginia home, the Russian machine whipped out his iPhone and started recording again. Seeing as the Capitals week-long road trip was finally over and five out of six standings points were earned, it probably seemed like a good time for more funny faces.
Who is the person in the Russia hat? Dmitry Orlov, is that you?
Maria, who is normal, was not amused.
Ovechkin: “Masha, why are you so displeased?”
Kirilenko: “Sasha, you are going to drive now. I am going to pull over, and you are going to drive.”
It’s almost like Maria realizes she is carrying two great hockey players and she should therefore concentrate on the road.
Later, Maria responded by posting an Instagram video of her own. No worries, their love is not on the rocks with no ice.
“Oh my God, how all of you became so interested that I can even be dissatisfied. It’s all nonsense, don’t listen to the rumors, look at what my love gave me.”
Later, Ovechkin took a selfie of himself shirtless (of course) in bed with Kirilenko, with the following caption.
Now she happy with new gift from Los Angeles ))haha good night)))) @mkirilenko87 love,i hope u love me to??;) [sic unbelievable]
Aside from the whole world-famous athletes thing, Ovechkin and Kirilenko’s relationship is pretty banal. Immature guy is immature. Immature guy annoys pretty girl. Immature guy buys pretty girl jewelry. Lovers’ quarrel quashed.
