Despite suffering one of their worst losses of the season Thursday night, Washington Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin is doubling down on a promise he made on the first day of training camp.
After a difficult offseason that saw many of the team’s veteran players leave, the famed goalscorer said “We’re not going to be suck this year.”
Well, we made that quote into a shirt. And today Ovechkin reached into his wardrobe and put it on.
Nastya Ovechkina posted the photo in her Instagram story Friday afternoon.
Our mentions on Twitter filled up with many of our readers being happy for us.
