Alex Ovechkin, 30, started today’s press conference with a question: “Where’s my happy birthday?” Eventually, he was asked about his birthday presents.
“In Moscow, they gave me a ship,” Ovechkin said, as reported by NHL.com’s Katie Brown. “It’s [at] my country house right now. It’s kind of funny.”
A ship is an extravagant gift. A ship isn’t necessarily funny. A ship is usually stored in the sea, not at country houses. This is confusing.
“I didn’t see [it yet],” Ovechkin continued. “I have a picture. A picture is one thing but to see in in real life is maybe a different thing.”
