ESPN Commercial – Alexander Ovechkin the Russian Spy

Ovechkin is now flagged by the US government for sure, unless he already was flagged. Funny commercial, probably isn’t a spy, what would the Russians want from ESPN anyway? Except to try to cheat in the Olympics!!! Another classic “This is SportsCenter” commercial.

Adam Burish: Chris Pronger is Terrible

Chicago Blackhawk’s Adam Burish could finally say what he thought about Philadelphia defenseman Chris Pronger. He thinks he’s terrible, and he wants to punch him. You have to love the bluntness of Burish.  Below is the Chrissy Pronger reference from the Chicago Tribune
