Morning Look: Wilbon, Ovechkin and Metallica
Today's morning look really ought to have been a pic of Alex Ovechkin at last night's Verizon Center Metallica concert. He was scheduled to go with Mike Green, and there are already Internet confirmations of his presence, but no pics, that I've seen anyhow. This clearly will change; if you're reading this and you have an Ovechkin-Metallica image, send it here. And this oughta counter all those Megadeth-Flyers connections.
In the meantime, you'll have to be satisfied with Michael Wilbon and Tony Kornheiser doing their best James Hetfield impersonations by screaming their bloody heads off about Ovechkin vs. Crosby. Yesterday's PTI included a "Chances that Ovechkin is better than Crosby" query from Tony Reali, and suddenly it was like a Cannibal Corpse show.
"If he were born in the United States, he'd either be Tebow or Urlacher," Tony said of Ovechkin, while noting that Ovechkin and Crosby fill different roles, one Stockton and one Malone. Tony concluded that there's a 61 percent chance Ovechkin is better. Wilbon was less conflicted.
"It's a hundred percent chance Ovechkin's better!!!!!!!!!!" Wilbon screamed, in all caps, as he began frothing at the mouth. "It's a North American bias because they didn't know who Ovechkin was!!!!!....Ovechkin is better, he's much better!!!!!!, even though the hype says otherwise. One hundred percent!!!!!!!!!"
Way to represent, boys. And, as Reali noted, that was likely the loudest hockey conversation in PTI history. Just imagine if they had been playing Master of Puppets in the background.
