The Alexander Ovechkin Song
If you're a real fan, you'll listen to this Alexander Ovechkin song 50 or 60 times before Friday night's Game 5. It's short, so that would only take about 90 minutes.
"Alexander Ovechkin...has proven himself to be, in my mind, not just the greatest hockey player to play the game, but the greatest athlete of all time," Fletcher told CHART Attack, unless this is all a giant put-on. "I mean, the stats may say what the stats may say, and people might choose to take a more rational approach to this, but in the church of my heart this guy Ovechkin is truly the greatest athlete of all time....
"He just wants to have fun and score goals. I can't really think of any other person in sports that is grabbing life by the [nether regions] and having the most fun with it. And that to me, well, you live once and he's doing it right....
"He gallops, he slams people, he whinnies, and you might even see a little flame coming out of his nostrils....
"This guy's a robot. He's like the plague. He's a galloping force across the Russian steppes. You can hear the galloping miles away and you're like, OK, gather your children, gather your wife, head for the hills and leave what you don't need behind because he's going to sack and pillage your town. He's like Genghis Khan."
That's a good interview. This is a good song. Fletcher admits that vibe might be more Ukrainian than pure Russian, with sort of a Cossack marching undertone, but I think we can forgive him his geographical weakness in exchange for the lyric, "He will hit you and break your bones."
