Ovechkin Meets LeBron

It's all at the D.C. Sports Bog. Here's an excerpt:

So we all stood in the hallway: Ted Leonsis, Alex Ovechkin, Nicklas Backstrom, a bunch of LeBron's people, a few other media folks. The entire Cavs team came through, with some, like Zydrunas Ilgauskas, stopping to chat with Ovechkin. The hockey star and LeBron's manager, Maverick Carter, talked about cars (LeBron has 12), and speed limits, and training regimens, and Verizon Center food (Ovechkin had two orders of nachos). Carter praised Ovechkin's hot stick celebration; "I do like NBA," Ovechkin joked.

Check out the rest of the details (plus video) over at the Bog.

That's pretty cool.

From a couple posts ago, IRTR, great reference to Monty Python, now you got that stuck in my head, combined with BB's Mercedes commercials...

Very interesting. Juice has arguably his best game of the season and sits, now the Lumberjack has his best and sits. I assume that BB has a schedule and is just sticking with the schedule.

Ovie needs to stop worrying about speed limits and how much he hates them.

Leonsis should put something in his contract that if he is hurt in a car going 100 mph or faster, his contract is null and void.

I think meetings like this are truly epic. Basketball is a very frustrating and boring game for me to watch, but Lebron's skills can keep me glued to the set for a game. He ,like Ovie, possess a near superhuman talent that anybody can appreciate.

I would love to see the gods of each sport get together and just do some sort of charity thing. If only for the photo op

Hey, there are other Monty Python fans in here.

So the lumberjack sits tonight. I'm not going to say it.

Bruce actually revealed his lines in morning skate. Is that a psych-out or an open challenge? You never know with Bruce.

Let's not rest the starters until the #2 seed is clinched. We've still got stuff to play for - granted that it's icing, but it's important icing. The division isn't clinched yet, and neither is the #2 seed. And yes, the #2 seed matters.

Hoping to see a good game tonight, though ... I must admit that it puts things in perspective to see this blog entry from a Sabres blog:


Worries about the team mailing it in and not showing up? Poor play? Who does that sound like?

Hm, have we actually had confirmation of who's going to be in goal?

I'm curious to see how Varl holds up against a desperate team that comes out gunning...

I am not sure how much "revealing your lines" is that big of a deal. It's not like the system is different. I don't think the other teams really give it that much thought. Does anyone really think that Buffalo cares if Feds is on the first line or the second line??

RE: revealing his lines. On Wednesday night, Boudreau changed the lines several times during the game, so it is hard to see how naming them early really matters.
