Okay, I’ll Admit Alex Ovechkin’s New ‘This Is SportsCenter’ Ad Is Pretty Awesome

Sure, it doesn’t feature Charlie Steiner imploring us to follow him to freedom – still the best “This Is SportsCenter” commercial ever – but Alexander Ovechkin as a Russian spy certainly brings the goods.

All in all, a job well done. A rare video-based hit for the Worldwide Leader In Sports sure to be quite popular on the ‘tubes, and at least it doesn’t involve Hannah Storm and Adam Schefter high-fiving one another over a coach’s firing. So that’s nice.
