There were probably folks who had their hearts set on Alex Ovechkin winning a Nickelodeon Kids Choice Sports Award. I don’t know any of those people, but they probably exist. Probably in Fairfax County. Anyway, those people are all heartbroken right now. Ovechkin has lost the award for Sickest Moves (no, seriously) to soccer star Alex Morgan.
This is okay. Everybody breathe.
We would like to welcome our new coach in with all the respect and decorum that is owed a Hall-of-Fame player and former Capitals captain — by which we mean, posting videos of him on Nickelodeon’s “GUTS.”
For those of you whose middle school years were not in the mid-nineties, “GUTS” was a low-budget, action-competition show on Nickelodeon featuring kids facing off in a variety of athletic challenges, often assisted by guest stars. Adam Oates appeared on the show in 1994, dressed for action in a salmon sweatshirt tucked into high-waisted jeans.
