PHT breaks down Alex Ovechkin’s rock star pressure

Alex Ovechkin

PHT’s Mike Halford and Jason Brough shared their thoughts on Olaf Kolzig’s claims that Alex Ovechkin is trying to live up to a “rock star image” on NBC Sports Talk today. (For what it’s worth, Ovi laughed off the comments.)

Considering Brough’s comparison to Jamie Foxx’s rapping quarterback character from “Any Given Sunday,” maybe we’re asking the wrong question. Is Ovechkin trying to be a rap superstar instead?

(Immediately imagines Ovechkin pouring out a 40 after a tough loss.)
