Alex Ovechkin has Saint Louis and Alabama going to the Final Four

Mar 15, 2012, 2:26 PM EDT

Via Joel Ward’s Twitter account, here’s Alex Ovechkin’s March Madness bracket. As you can see, it’s been filled out using the unorthodox “connect the dots” method.


A few details:

—- Ovi’s Final Four is Kentucky, Syracuse, Saint Louis, and Alabama.

—- Saint Louis and ‘Bama are each No. 9 seeds.

—- Ovi has Kentucky beating ‘Bama in the championship game.

—- He also has No. 15 Norfolk State upsetting No. 2 Missouri and making it all the way to the Elite 8.

—- Norfolk State beat a school called Bethune-Cookman, 73-70, to qualify for the tournament for the first time in school history.

    Not surprised that Ovi can’t read or write in English, but I’m pretty impressed that he’s invented a system that every illiterate person can use to fill out their brackets. Hopefully everyone has a Joel Ward in their lives to read out the team names to them.

    Hahahahahaha. PHT you need to find some Ovie art work from his school days.

    What a joke this guy is becoming!

      why? just for filling out an unlikely bracket…more exciting than taking all high seeded teams…everyone knows there are upsets they are just afraid to say who its gonna be…

      I know eh! What are we paying these European hockey players for if its not to be well versed in College Basketball!!

      (collective slap in your face)

    And his stats have been going downhill for the past couple years. Takes dumb penalties. This guy is no superstar

      Dumb penalties?… He has 26 penalty minutes in 66 games… You are an idiot

    Just the sound of this parasite’s name causes my blood to boil ! As I’ve stated here before, this lazy, under-achieving, childish, moody, narcissistic, self-serving Russian “fruit cake” makes me absolutely sick ! … and he’s a disgrace to all of the glorious Soviets greats who preceded him. I say “get lost” big man Ovi and take your Goldman Sachs contract with you ! We don’t like you and we reject “that” which you represent !

    ps friends: here’s another example of what Russian hockey was meant to be …

      Holy crap is this you again… Who posts old time hockey everywhere when any article is of a Russian player.


      I wish I could point directly into your face and laugh!
