Ovechkin got a ship -- sorry, make that a sheep

Alex Ovechkin

Alex Ovechkin


Alex Ovechkin turned 30 yesterday.

So, did he get any cool gifts?

From CSN Washington:

“In Moscow, in Russia, they gave me a ship,” Ovechkin said. “It’s at my country house right now, so it’s kind of funny.”

“A ship?” Ovechkin was asked.

“Yeah, a ship,” Ovechkin replied.

“A real ship?” Ovechkin was asked.

“Yes, a real ship,” Ovechkin confirmed.

“How big is it?” Ovechkin was asked.

“I didn’t see it,” Ovechkin said. “I have a picture, but a picture is one thing but to see it in real life is maybe something.”

Anyway, turns out it wasn’t a ship. It was a sheep.



CSN Washington has video of the exchange between Ovechkin and reporters.

(It really did sound like he said ship.)
