Many of you have already seen this video, but heck I’m always a tad slow on the uptake so I’ll post it anyway. Here’s Alex Ovechkin of the Washington Capitals (The Duke’s favourite player) dropping some Russian rhymes on what I’m guessing is some popular Russian rappers track.
When he’s scoring 50 goals a season something like this makes him seem colourful. Now that he’s scoring goals at a pedestrian pace some of his critics will question his dedication to the game of hockey. I suppose it goes with the territory of being in the public eye.
Eventhough I can’t understand a thing he says in this video, I enjoy his thug like dancing and white cap turned to the side. That being said Ovie’s song still will be ranked #2 on my list of all-time Russian song list. The first place finisher is still Nikolai Volkov’s Russian national anthem. A true classic if there ever was.
