Oh… My… Goodness

July 23, 2009 at 11:33 am | Posted in Alex Ovechkin, Happy!!, Huh? | 5 Comments

So, if you’ve spent any amount of time around this blog, you know that I have a bit of a thing for Alexander Ovechkin.  Over the past few weeks days I’ve been trying to talk more about the Sabres and less about him and the rest of the Captials.  I always feel a bit guilty when I talk about my Capitals loves on my Sabres blog, but today I’m making an exception.

There’s a fabulous blog I enjoy checking every few days to see what Alex is up to.  It’s a great place to keep up on his schedule and see what shenanigans he’s getting in to.  It’s also a place I can always go if I hear Alex gave an interview or something like that and I want to see the video.

Today, however, I came across a picture in which Alex strikes a pose very similar to that of one Mr. Robert Pattinson.  He actually does look quite a bit like him in said picture.  Now, I’m definitely not a fan of Rob (I find him to be an insufferable douchebag, and even back in his Harry Potter days I didn’t think he was that great of an actor, but that’s just my opinion) but after seeing this picture I wanted to make sure that I wasn’t just making it up when I said it was pretty much the exact same pose as Alex is striking in his photograph.  After spending 25 minutes going through page after page of Google image search results, I finally just stole a similar picture from Flickr.  (If this is your picture, thanks for letting me use it!  If you’d like me to take it down, just let me know.)

And I would just like to point out that while most teenaged girls would relish the chance to spend half an hour looking at pictures of Rob, it kind of made me want to claw my eyes out.

Now, compare it with this.  I’m assuming it’s the cover of a magazine, but I don’t speak Russian (yet) so I can’t confirm that.

So…yeah.  I guess this is what Alex does when he’s not busy, you know, being a hockey player.  Where do we begin with this photograph?  Perhaps the look on his face would be a good place to start.  Dear Readers, I have watched a lot of Capitals games and I’ve seen him make a lot of faces, but none of them seem to quite match this intensity.  Wow.  I’m impressed.

Then there’s the hair.  It’s a bit difficult to make out since the background is black and his hair is dark, but it looks like he has that messy “I just got out of bed”/”I don’t wash/style my hair” look everyone has come to associate with Rob.  (As opposed to the “I just got out of bed”/”I don’t cut/comb my hair” look we generally associate with Alexander.)  Oddly enough, this hair works on him.  It works really well.  If he started styling his hair like this more often, I wouldn’t be totally against it.

Then there’s the jacket.  The only reason I put any time or effort into searching for that certain picture of Rob was because I knew in it he had the exact same look, and I knew he was posing the exact same way with a leather jacket.  (Don’t judge me!!  I took out a subscription to Us Weekly for one of my brother’s fundraisers and they have pictures of him in it all the time.)  I’ve personally always been a fan of grabbing your jacket in that manner if you’re taking a sexy picture, and Aelx definitely pulled it off in this one.

Then there’s the huge crucifix and his “8” necklace, but I’m not going to say anything about those.  Other than that they were selling necklaces like his “8” one and I was all set to order it and then I found out it was somewhere in the neighborhood of a hundred dollars.  Sorry, Alexander.  I’m not spending that much.

All in all, however, I consider this picture to be a Win.  A sexy win, but a win nonetheless.

And before you get your knickers in a twist worrying that Alex is trying to become a sex symbol, fear not!  He’s still a total goofball, deep down.



(I can’t believe I actually just spent an hour writing a post about a picture and Rob Pattinson, but I did.  Make of that what you will.)

(I swear, I’m not a puck bunny.  I know what a zamboni is.)

  1. As soon as I saw that magazine cover pic of Alex, it reminded me of another magazine cover that featured an international athelete.

    Here is Brazilian soccer star Kaka’ on the cover of the Italian version of GQ from about five years back.

    Kaka’ lacks the intensity of Alex in the pic, but the poses and the hair especially, struck me as similar. And Kaka’ is every bit as brilliant on the pitch as Alex is on the ice.

  2. Uh, seriously? Hotness.

    • I never thought “hot” was a word I would associate with him…but it is now. And I kind of like that.

  3. Frostee, I love your blog. I too am an Ovechkin fan. No, I do not know his mother’s shoe size. What a great picture! He could honestly guest star on Trueblood.

    • Thanks, Cherie!! And I never event thought he would make a good vampire…until I saw this picture. It changes everything.
