Behind Ovechkin are his sticks, labeled with him number ‘8’.
But wait … what’s that one stick there? With the writing on it? It’s some sort of message …
Good to see NHL players feel the same way about their measuring sticks as most of us do about our staplers and high quality pens in the office.
But seriously: Who dared touch Ovechkin’s “measure stick” so often that he felt the need to police said action with a lewd warning? He’s the captain, for goodness sake; go steal Tom Wilson’s measure stick.
So there you go: Don’t Touch Alex Ovechkin’s Measure Stick. That goes double for you mother [expletives] from other teams trying to frame him for having an illegal stick. Because he hasn’t had once since at least 2009, according to Pittsburgh.
UPDATE: An alternative thought - this is the trainer's measure stick, used to measure the Capitals' gear. In which case Alex Ovechkin may, in fact, be the mother [expletive] that touched it.
