On New Year’s Eve, Alex Ovechkin shattered the earth with news that he and his tennis-superstar/girlfriend Maria Kirilenko had gotten engaged. If we go by the accompanying photo Sasha tweeted out, we can assume the two played pond hockey before the Russian machine popped the question. Yeah. It’s that cute.
But the ring. What about the engagement ring? Ovi’s pic of the two together showed both of them wearing hockey gloves. That doesn’t do us any good.
On New Year’s day, Ovechkin tweeted out a photo of the two together by the tree (the Christmas decorations are amazing), as Maria prominently displays some bling on her right hand.
The ring is still too tiny for gossip, so our friends over at CSI:Miami have lent us one of their fancy-schmancy computer enhancement programs so we can get a better look.
