Ovechkin’s fiancee celebrates two-year anniversary with mushy tweet

Sep 9, 2013, 2:12 PM EDT

Today, apparently, is the two-year anniversary of the romance between Washington Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin and tennis star Maria Kirilenko.

Here’s how we know:


Two teddy bears = two years?

Ovechkin and Kirilenko confirmed their engagement in December. As of March, the couple had yet to set a wedding date.

Please proceed to the comments section to complain about the lack of real hockey news in this post.

    I’d like to complain about the lack of real hockey news in this post.

      I would like to second said complaint about the lack of real hockey news in this post.

      P.S. Jason…I can actually just tell over the last week or so (probably longer) with your stories that even you, are ready to start writing about real hockey news. Very soon friend…very soon…

        I always have time for love stories.

        Whereas, I’d like to complain that neither the happy couple nor Jason seem to know that “two-year anniversary” is redundant. The root of anniversary is annum which means year. Annual? So, simply second anniversary would be muchly gooderer.

        nothanksimdriving clearly has never had a girlfriend….. or he’d know that women use “anniversary” for months too…… ya know, like EVERY month. OV and Jason are just used to having to clarify.

      What do you mean “lack of hockey news”. You act like this is the ONLY story on here. Feel free to scroll through the 10-plus OTHER stories posted in the last 24hrs on here.

        You know that bit underneath the headline, like, with all the information? Yeah, read that first next time, then leave your comment.

      • Lupy Nazty Philthy - Sep 10, 2013 at 3:34 PM

        you know those MULTIPLE other articles on this website? Yeah, read those first next time, before whining that they don’t exists.

    Sidney Crosby made one of these, but he was holding hands with a referee as Gary Bettman took the picture.

    • Lupy Nazty Philthy - Sep 9, 2013 at 5:58 PM

      Yeah right. As if Bettman wouldn’t make sure he was in the picture too.

    digging for hockey news in this article… the background ice seems to indicate he still fancies himself a Washington capital… but the Russianess of his wife may make him jump to the KHL…. *over analyzing*

    • ibieiniid - Sep 9, 2013 at 4:00 PM

      tennis and hockey have the same amount of letters.

  4. ibieiniid - Sep 9, 2013 at 2:49 PM

    if i was with Kirilenko, i’d retweet anything that helps her pants come off…. i mean anything that makes her happy.

    stupid Freud.

    You could’ve added a random KHL rumor. Just saying.

    They were married two years ago? Suddenly Ovechkin not quite having his legs for the last two years makes sense. He started to get them back during last season. I guess the honeymoon is over.

    • blomfeld - Sep 9, 2013 at 9:43 PM


      No such luck Lupy Nazi Philthy, as they are just engaged. If you recall, two years ago Ovechkin was ‘holidaying with men’ down in Florida …

      • Lupy Nazty Philthy - Sep 9, 2013 at 9:55 PM

        Well, I don’t keep tabs on Florida sausage parties, so I’ll take your word for it.

    Gotta admit, Ovi’s beard in this pic is much better looking than the one he grows at playoff time…

      I hope your computer gets lupus.

    • Lupy Nazty Philthy - Sep 10, 2013 at 3:32 PM

      Wow… I’ve never seen anyone get so excited/over-emotional after reading the words “sausage party”. Why so defensive blowfeld? I must have struck a nerve, and I can only guess where that nerve is located.

      If you’re going to act like a angry little girl every time someone disagrees with you, maybe sports isn’t your thing. Actually that’s not true. Lots of girls can handle their emotions better than you.

      Anyways, keep ranting like the moron you clearly are.
