Russian family wears Ovechkin, Russian hockey masks

Obviously, I’m not in Sochi.

Obviously, many Post employees are.

They will have copious coverage of Alex Ovechkin, John Carlson and the rest of the Caps who are playing for Olympic glory this month.

If I were there, though, I feel like I’d probably find and photograph this Russian family who is cruising around town with a quartet of cut-out giant-face Russian hockey mask things, featuring Ovechkin, Malkin, Datsyuk and Kovalchuk. Why do Caps fans not do this? I feel like a family of Caps fans doing this would be right at home at Verizon Center. They’d probably show up in a commercial for a local wine shop at some point, too.
