Hockey Mom's quote of the day comes from none other than Capitals majority owner Ted Leonsis, when trying to describe the essence of Alex Ovechkin (courtesy of this Michael Wilbon piece):
"Sid is the best white wine the restaurant has to offer. Alex is a Denver Slammer, a shot of tequila in a glass of champagne. You whack the glass so that the fizz is coming up and you just shoot it."
Hockey Mom absolutely loves this description and I have my own comparison of the two (which I've shared before) relating to food.
Sidney Crosby is plain vanilla with just a few of the chocolate jimmies on top (in a plain sugar cone, please).
Alex Ovechkin is two scoops Cotton Candy, two scoops Chocolate Double-Espresso and three scoops of Pistachio (with extra hot fudge, whipped cream, a half-pound of colored sprinkles, extra cherries for the rocking the red and a birthday sparkler on top)!
