Alex Ovechkin Drinks Five Beers Before Games
So says Alex Ovechkin in this interview with former Miss Florida contestant Tiffany Simons, who hopes to "peak your curiosity" by linking to Poll Voter Clay Travis's SEC Ladies Rankings in her blog. Sigh. But you will recall that I gave you all a sneak pique at Clay's rankings last week.
Anyhow, first Ovie tells Tiffany that he prepares for hockey games by going swimming, and then by drinking five beers.
"That's why I do some crazy moves, because I'm drunk," he says.
She wonders if he's telling the truth. He admits he was lying. They bat their eyelashes at each other. Little zinglets of the usual journalist-source tension flit across the screen. Then he says he really drinks "Red Bull and wodka" before games.
(Note: I've asked many, many, many dumb questions in my life, so I shouldn't be throwing stones, but this question about the Capitals would not have been high on my list:
"Why do you think they're going to be as good as some people say?"
Which people were those? The ones who were picking the Caps to finish 14th instead of 15th in the East?)
Anyhow, after rattling off all the celebrities he's met in the States (Celebrity No. 1: Olie Kolzig), Ovie is asked about the differences between playing in Russia and in the NHL.
"Here is better," he says, "because after practice, pretty girl come to me, I give interview. I feel pretty good."
More zinglets of tension. And I'm not convinced these are the usual journalist-source zinglets of tension, either.
