When you’re a bro, sometimes you miss stuff right under your nose. Barstool missed the coolest part of the story: Ovechkin himself not only liked the photo, he also commented on it in Russian. Whaaaaa.
According to a translation from RMNB’s Igor Kleyner, Ovechkin tells Denis, “Super! Take another photo!” Ovechkin wants to see Tattovechkin straight-on, none of this selfie ish.
Denis obliged a day later with the caption, “At the request of Alex Ovechkin…”
Next question: who’s going to be the first to tattoo RMNB on their body?
