anyone find a picture of ovechkin crying after that loss?
Why ... do you want to mock a 19 year old kid who tried his best to bring home Gold for his country? Do you want to laugh at him for getting injured?
Seriously ... smarten up. I've seen many a Canadian player in tears in the last 7 years. These are all teenagers trying to bring home victory for their respective countries. Give this kid a break.
Some people are just like that. If Ovechkin was shown sitting on bench without any emotion on his face, tons of idiots on this board would be wrinting stuff like 'Here's your future Bure', 'He's only in it for the money', 'How can any team win with a gutless mercernary like that as a captain' blablablacakes.
You just can't win with some people.
Not that I'm advocating any vicious attacks against Ovechkin, but the man asked for the photo, so here it is:
True. On the other hand it's good that they start these threads, because then you instantly know who to ignore in the future
Give the kid a break. You never cried after losing a tournament?
Pictures like this really bring the whole thing into perspective. For all the emotions brought up by this tournament and all the hate spewed on these boards, they're just kids playing a game.
I would rather see my players show their emotions like Ovechkin and Malkin did then not, it shows what type of person/player they are. I actually like that picture, Malkin and Ovechkin are awesome.
I know why he's crying, he only has one arm.
No one bashed Ovechkin for crying. I was almost happy to see him cry after his team lost. I wasn't happy because he actually lost but for the good reason that the kid has heart. He's so fun to watch and he's a good person on top of that. He plays the game with passion and heart; as a fan of the game, how can I not like it? Hockey is a emotional game and Ovechkin is a top-notch player.
I'm looking forward to see the kid in the nhl.
Here is a shot of Canada's and Russia's future stars shaking hands.
Thanks, that'll be my new Avatar.....
WOW that pic is intense
I think his right arm/shoulder is the one he injured..looks like it might be in a sling under his jersey.
I wonder if you are Ottawa fan?
Because I think I have some pictures of Redden and many other membres of Sens team 2002-2003 crying after NJ scored goal #3 in game #7. It was sad, and I am not laughing at all...I just wonder why is this so funny to see AO and YM crying.
Teenagers aren't the only one to cry after a tournament loss. I have seen grown NHLers do it after being eliminated in the playoffs, particularly the final SC game. Happens in the WJCs, happens at the Memorial Cup, happens everywhere.
I think this really brings into perspective AO comments though. He really felt that Russia had a shot and he wasn't just running his mouth because he could.
Not to mention Mats Sundin after a second round elimination. Just goes to show you how passionate these guys get for the game.
I remember Mike Peluso in tears during the 94-95 Finals when the Devils won the Cup. He was one of the toughest players in the league, and he broke down after winning the Stanley Cup. I wish I could find an image of it.
Or Eric Lindros after winning the Hart trophy in 1995
Tears just shows that you are human
Not an Ottawa fan, but I'd love to see the pics. Thanks!
I don't see what the big deal is about Ovechkin crying. Now I actually believe this guy has heart.
Trevor Linden and many other Canucks cried after game 7 in 94, and they get paid to try and win the cup.
Whoever finds this funny is sick.
It's not funny. I think AO probably learned some life lessons this tourney that will help him when he storms into the NHL.
