Ovechkin = Svyerkhchelovek
So what's better? A Russian-language gallery of Alex Ovechkin striking various poses while wearing a Superman jersey (aka Svyerkhchelovek, I think) and holding dress shoes bearing a Russian flag, or this quote from a Russian-language-in-translation Ovechkin interview, upon receiving said shoes:
Oh, just my size, 44!" rejoices Ovechkin. "Perhaps indeed, I'll wear these shoes to see Vladimir Vladimirovich? And then I'll go see Yuri Mikhailovich Luzhkov. The mayor of Moscow has also invited hockey players to come visit him."
So basically anything Russian-language-in-translation sounds like The Brothers Karamazov?
"Don't be put out at our eating pancakes - it's a very old custom and there's something nice in that!" laughed Alyosha. "Well, let us go! And now we go hand in hand. And always so, all our lives hand in hand! Hurrah for Karamazov!" Kolya cried once more rapturously, and once more boys took up his exclamation.
(Also receiving votes: the photo of Ovechkin posed with his mini-OV bobblehead.)
