After attending an adorablicious Knowledge Day celebration in Russia earlier this week, Washington Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin resurfaced on our continent for the NHL’s media day. Ovechkin did photoshoots, chatted with reporters about how he’s totes staying in the NHL, and shot some commercials for big media outlets.
During one of the commercial shoots, Ovi had what one can describe only as An Ovi Moment.
TSN had the reigning Hart winner taking slap shots at the net. Seemed pretty harmless until Ovi treated the lighting rig like Led Zeppelin treated the Hollywood Hyatt.

Wednesday night was supposed to be the Pittsburgh Penguins’ first visit to Verizon Center this season. Because of the NHL lockout, we won’t get to see Matt Cooke trolling or Sidney Crosby caterwauling plaintively at the refs. We’ll just have to settle for candy instead.
Hating Pittsburgh sports is coded into my DNA. I’m physically sick over this. Gary Bettman is depriving me of my regular Sidney Crosby hate, and now I am indescribably sad.
To cheer myself up, I have compiled these GIFs from the Alex Ovechkin “Sorry, Penguin” commercial. And now I share them with you. You’ll laugh. You’ll cry. You’ll wave $15 goodbye.
