In recent years, the Capitals have been one of the better professional sports teams in the DMV (DC, Maryland and Northern Virginia) area. With their success on the ice and the lack of success from pretty much every other DMV team, it is really easy to get attached to the Caps. I’ll be the first to admit that I am not the biggest hockey fan, but you have to love Alexander Ovechkin! The way he plays the sport and his personality off the ice are both infectious. So here’s to you Mr. Ovechkin! Keep doing what you do, because we love you!
I stalked/creeped these pictures off of his twitter account ovi8.
