Alexander Ovechkin grooves to Drake song in a car with his buddies (video)
Say what you want about Washington Capitals superstar Alexander Ovechkin, this video leaves little doubt that his reemergence into a dominant offensive force during the regular season apparently has him feeling fairly loosey-goosey heading into his team’s Game 1 showdown against the New York Rangers on Thursday night in the rivals’ Eastern Conference quarterfinals match-up.
Uploaded to the interwebs on Wednesday via the iPhone of Ovie’s professional tennis-playing fiancée Maria Kirilenko is a video featuring Ovechkin and his buddies grooving to Drake’s “Started from the Bottom.”
Clearly, Ovechkin doesn’t hate the Drake and this isn’t the first time the World of Ovie has intersected with the World of Hip Hop. A video surfaced back in 2011 of Ovechkin’s awkwardly entertaining cameo in a Russian rap group’s video. This new video of Ovie kicking it in a car only confirms that the 27-year-old Alexander Ovechkin is hip to what the kids are listening to these days.
I mean, Drake is still cool, right? Sorry, I just don’t keep up on the hippety-hoppity and the rippity-rappity as I probably should.
