Ovechkin shows respect for his coach
When former Terps Coach Bud Millkan passed away last week, the Terps Insider published a nice little write-up. And it immediately made me think of Alex Ovechkin.
In an interview in his Comcast Center office in January 2009, [Gary] Williams said Millikan demanded deference from his charges. Maryland players called their coach "Sir." During timeouts in games, players laid down on their chests on the court and looked up at Millikan as he provided instruction. "Back then," Williams said, "that was a sign of respect for the coach."
You'll notice that Alex Ovechkin clearly has that respect for his coach. And the rest of his teammates don't, I guess.
(If it's not obvious, that's not what's going on here. The Caps are playing Juice Boy, a favorite post-practice game, and for some reason Ovechkin is watching on his belly. Don't ask me why.)
Moving on, if you like post-game ovations, check out the one Alex Ovechkin got during his on-ice interview with Lisa Hillary on Sunday, below. I think the fans like him. When asked about Sunday's game, Ovechkin smiled and said "What I can say?," which isn't a bad motto for the month his team just finished.
