I have to thank our friends over at www.RussianMachineNeverBreaks.com (an awesome Capitals blog, highly recommended) for posting this awesome video of Alexander Ovechkin rapping , and dancing (well kind of dancing), in a Russian hip-hop video. It’s really everything you could ask for. They gentlemen from RMNB were even nice enough to supply a transaltion for all those not versed in the Russian language. Ovechkin starts rapping at the 2:55 mark (translation under video)
