Alex Ovechkin annoys announcers
Woke up this morning to find the Russia-Slovakia game being replayed on one of the many Canadian Olympic channels so I tried to catch a little as I got ready for another day.
During the game, Alex Ovechkin apparently broke a stick and went to the bench to replace it. He didn't like the sticks that were brought out so he went behind the bench to look for a new stick himself. The Canadian announcers were not pleased.
"I can't believe they are letting him get away with this," said one.
"The rules don't apply to him," said another.
Ouch. Canada, is of course, Sidney Crosby country, and the nation's hockey fanatics have set up this Olympic tournament as Ovechkin vs. Crosby. There is respect for Ovechkin but not a lot of affection. A meeting between the two teams will be very interesting.
