Dear Mr. Derek,
Thank you for the letter I always like to hear from my fans. But lets get something straight…..I’m Alex Ovechkin, also known as Alexander the Great, The Great 8, the Mighty Ovechkin, Ovie, or OV-1. I got more nicknames than you can shake a stick at. So if I want to celebrate my 50th goal I can do it whenever and however I want to. I am ALEXANDER THE GREAT damn it!
I don’t send you e-mails when you fall down the stairs in a drunken stouper. I didn’t tell you that you could have fallen in a more dramatic fashion. Like I’ve said I’m The Great 8 so I don’t want to upset my fans out there. So I’ll send you a signed copy of my 50th goal.
P.S. I’ll see you in the playoffs.
