Early Sunday morning DC time (2 AM), Washington Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin instagrammed a photo. The Russian machine stood in front of some sort of Dynamo Moscow shrine (I assume in his mansion), smiled, and held up his finger. He wrote:
с Днем рожДения, роДное Динамо!!!я очень горД что я Динамовец!….Люблю..Горжусь…я очень горжусь что вся моя семья Динамовцы!!!!
I had no idea what that said, so I asked Igor and Fedor. This is how it translates.
Happy BirthDay, Dear Dynamo!!! I’m so prouD to be a Dynamo alum… I love this club and prouD of it… I’m prouD that my whole family are from Dynamo!!!!
Sunday was the 68th Anniversary of Dynamo Moscow. Ovechkin’s capitalizing all his Ds is apparently a popular thing among Dynamo fans. They call each other “SoraDnik” (which means “brother-in-arms”, intentionally misspelled to unclude the uppercase “D”).
So yeah, Ovechkin loves his Dynamo.
