Ovechkin and Crosby in Vanity Fair

By Dan Steinberg


Vanity Fair ran a brief little item on Alex Ovechkin and Sidney Crosby in this month's issue, plus a bonus online Q&A with Crosby. There's also this video, accompanied by Beethoven's Fifth, showing a clear anti-Russian bias, since we all know Tchaikovsky's Fourth would have been a better choice.

Anyhow, the video maybe doesn't have a ton of highlights, but a body language expert might be able to do something with these images.

Nice piece, Dan.
I liked that the kid was so happy showing off his Ovie jersey and helmet. It's clear who his favorite was...

I am not a body language expert. However, there is something that I can glean from these images: Ovie is the MAN and Sid is the kid.

IF AND UNTIL THE CAPS LEARN THEY HAVE TO PLAY ALL THREE PERIODS AND NOT TWO THEY WILL NEVER GO ANYWHERE IN THE PLAYOFFS. AS LONG AS ANY TEAM STAYS CLOSE TO THE CAPITALS THEY CAN OUT WORK THEM AND BEAT THEM. THE OTHER TEAM DOESN'T QUIT JUST BECAUSE THE CAPS HAVE A 3 GOAL LEAD. BUT THE CAPS DO. THEY MUST THINK THE OTHER TEAM HAS QUIT AND THAT THEIR LEAD IS INSURMOUNTABLE. WELL I GUESS THOSE AWFUL MAPLE LEAFS SHOULD THE CAPS??/ UNBELIEVABLE AS OVIE LIKES TO SAY!!!

My analysis of the second screencap is that Crosby is describing his championship ring while Ovechkin explains how to drink his namesake drink.
