Alexander Ovechkin Celebrations - Not That Great

Ok, probably one of the most annoying sports players in recent history is Alexander Ovechkin. He's probably the Dion Sanders of the NHL and that is not a complement. If you don't know what I'm talking about check out the Ovechkin 50th Goal Celebration. Wow, can a hockey player look and act more stupid? I can't wait until they start putting his celebration dances in videogames, or have they done that already? That would be awesome. NOT!

My point being that if you are good, you don't have to act like a complete tool. In my honest opinion, Gretzky and Mario Lemieux's flashy goals were something worth celebrating over. In fact they have had countless opportunities where they made incredible plays and it would have been warranted. Ovechkin? Not so much. He's a good player not great. Not yet at least. The Canadians probably like him because he puts butts in the seats. Oh well, you can't argue with money makers. They'll always be around. The NHL has their first Youtube star and its this guy.
