I’ve always been a player fan more than anything One nation under god Washington Capitals shirt, Sundin and Lidstrom were my favorites for years until they retired luckily there was this guy to pick up that flame (even though I’m from Nova Scotia, sorry Sid lol) by far my favorite player in the last decade-plus. You see people celebrate all the time in sports. even most final wins its rare you are overcome with emotions on their behalf usually “yeah! my team won/lost’ Or “nice good for them” but when Ovechkin lifted that cup whether you were a fan or not you could feel it, the power, the sacrifice, the passion. brings a tear to my eye every time I see it.
