Alex Ovechkin on his harrowing joyride with Mike Green in a utility cart a decade ago: ‘We was young and crazy’
One of my favorite Alex Ovechkin moments of all time didn’t happen on the ice. It happened inside the bowels of Capital One Arena when, as a much younger player, Ovechkin almost accidentally eliminated two of the Capitals’ four Young Guns from existence with one bad but funny decision.
Well over a decade ago, Ovechkin was caught on camera driving Mike Green around Capital One Arena in a utility cart.
“Me and Ovi usually go for a ride when we get out in soccer,” Green said then.
The video then shows Ovi going turbo speed down a ramp to try and make it past a metal gate that was rapidly closing.
“If you get close to it, it’ll go back up but, I mean, if it doesn’t, we’re in some serious trouble,” Green said.
