Alex Ovechkin turned 30 yesterday.
So, did he get any cool gifts?
From CSN Washington:
“In Moscow, in Russia, they gave me a ship,” Ovechkin said. “It’s at my country house right now, so it’s kind of funny.”
“A ship?” Ovechkin was asked.
“Yeah, a ship,” Ovechkin replied.
“A real ship?” Ovechkin was asked.
“Yes, a real ship,” Ovechkin confirmed.
“How big is it?” Ovechkin was asked.
“I didn’t see it,” Ovechkin said. “I have a picture, but a picture is one thing but to see it in real life is maybe something.”
Anyway, turns out it wasn’t a ship. It was a sheep.
CSN Washington has video of the exchange between Ovechkin and reporters.
(It really did sound like he said ship.)
