Ovie frolicking in a fountain. Ovie sleeping with the Stanley Cup. Doing a handstand while drinking beer out of the bowl.
At a Washington Nationals baseball game, throwing out the first pitch and hoisting the Cup in the stands. Visiting Jimmy Fallon on the Tonight Show. Today is the Stanley Cup parade, which may be the culmination of the Washington Capitals’ gallivanting around the city, with Alex Ovechkin and his teammates taking the NHL’s famous trophy virtually everywhere.
Wherever they go it seems like they’re singing “We are the Champions.” And laughing. And hugging. And drinking. Lots of drinking.
The Stanley Cup’s parody account on Twitter called it the Best. Weekend. Ever. Others noted the Stanley Cup may have to check into rehab.
Some of us are prudish enough to frown at the glamourization of drinking, but it’s tough to not appreciate the pure joy Ovechkin and his teammates derive from sharing their victory.
