Earlier today I saw some tweets rumoring that the great one, Alexander Ovechkin, may have joined in on some chants bellowed from the sellout Verizon Center crowd.

According to TSN and Washington's own D.C. Sports Bog, Alexander Ovechkin was caught mouthing the words Penguins suck during game two of the Pittsburgh vs. Washington playoff series. Thanks to this video it appears that Ovie joined in on the activities.

Granted, Ovie chanting Pitt sucks is not the best PR move or any of that stuff, but I have to admit, I love it.

No athlete in sports enjoys their job more than Alexander Ovechkin. It is good to see an athlete enjoy what they are doing and having some fun. Sports are meant to be fun, and too often we forget that.
