Ovechkin video makes us homesick

There are flat screen televisions all over the Main Press Center, which is our second home until Friday, at least. CTV is one of the chosen channels to play all the livelong day, and the network is airing a special called "Sid the Kid vs. Alexander the Great."

The sound is muted, and I've been in and out, so I haven't watched this from beginning to end. It appears to be an hour long -- although maybe that's just because it's played so often today -- and it contains some great footage of Ovechkin, from Russia, from the States, from all over the place. Here's Ovechkin's father, talking about the Russians' chances for gold: "They are all united like fingers in a fist."

Frankly, I wish someone would tune into the Caps-Habs game, now that I've seen this over and over. But no such look in this room. Although I noticed a volunteer in the main hallway had taken matters into his own hands and switched to the game.
