We are in the dog days of summer and Alex Ovechkin is taking time to unwind.
Ovechkin attended a soccer game in Moscow on Sunday between local teams CSKA Moscow and Spartak Moscow. While some analysts back in North America are questioning whether Ovechkin is still one of the league’s top scorers, he showed the world that at least he hasn’t lost a step when it comes to taking selfies.
He also showed he still rolls with some pretty exclusive crowds in Russia as he tweeted out this photo:
The picture shows Ovechkin with his trademark smile, photographer Pavel Basharinov (left) and Russian Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich (center).
The Great 8 also couldn’t miss an opportunity to give a shout out to his favorite team (Dynamo). The Instagram picture was captioned: “Spartak-Cska!!Gonna be interesting but Dynamo best! With bashka72 and @advorkovich !!!” (as translated by Fedor Fedin of Russian Machine Never Breaks).
Now if only he could Instagram a picture of the Winter Classic venue….
